|Programs at West Hills|
The purpose of the West Hills United Methodist Church is to be a living church, where we can learn about our Lord, love Him, worship Him, and serve Him. We want our church to emphasize fellowship with a sense of sharing one another's concerns and joys. We want our church to reach out to the needs of our youth, and encourage them to participate in our programs. We want our church to be actively involved in the world community, with outreach programs to help the needy and less fortunate, and to attract others in our community who are not currently attending worship service.
Each Sunday begins with a 15 minute worship service, and then students go to class. Classes are small, informal and interactive. Classes are taught using official Cokesbury & David E. Cook materials, and culminate in a Confirmation class when students reach the appropriate age. Aside from regular classes, the Sunday School program includes a "Back to Church" brunch, Halloween Party, Christmas Brunch with Santa, Christmas Pageant, Easter Egg Hunt and more.
Various Bible and Book Studies are run each year, sometimes by the Pastor and other times by lay members. The congregation is usually polled to find topics of interest, and Bible Study is usually held Thursday of each week at the church.
Our choir sings every Sunday from September through June. No experience is required and practice is Sunday before service at 9:30
Held at various points during the year, religious, environmental, and thought provoking movies are shown in Jones Hall using our LCD projector and 12 foot screen. Pizza and discussion always follow.
United Methodist Women
This informal organization of women at West Hills meets and plans various events throughout the year, including the annual Cookie Walk.
West Hills has operated a nursery school for more than 30 years. Currently, the program operates a 2, 3 and 4 year old program utilizing two classrooms. The 2 and 3 year old classroom was recently renovated, with new floors, carpeting, tables, chalk and white boards. The fenced in playground and indoor playroom (Jones Hall) allow for ample room for children to practice being children. The academic program is quite rigorous, providing children with an excellent foundation for success in Kindergarten.
Aside from these church sponsored activities, other organizations use the church as well, including Alanon, Seventh Day Adventists, and L.O.V.E.
