Social Distancing

We are ready to gather again but there will be limitations.

  1. We are encouraging everyone who attends to wear a face mask and to remain 6 feet from anyone who lives outside of their home.
  2. When you enter the worship center, seating will be arranged for you to sit with your household while social distancing from everyone else.
  3. Furthermore, our facilities team will be working non-stop to keep our spaces as clean as possible.
  4. Pay attention on Sunday morning for other rules like bathroom assignments and the exit strategy. 

Online Worship

While we are excited to worship in-person again, we recognize that many in our community are still at risk. We encourage those who are at risk or who feel uncomfortable with joining us in-person to continue joining us online by clicking the button below.

Kid's Ministry

In conjunction with the restart of Alachua County Public Schools, starting on Sunday, August 23rd, our kid's ministry programming will resume in a limited capacity. We will provide programming for children who are walking through 5th grade. An RSVP will be required for every child. We will also be checking temperatures upon arrival and face masks will be required for all children kindergarten and older. To learn more and RSVP for your children, click the button below.

Youth Ministry

Collective (our Wednesday night youth service) is still happening every Wednesday night at 6:45PM. Social distancing measures are in place and face masks are required but we are thrilled to have the chance to worship together each week. You must have an RSVP to attend the service. Just click the button below to learn more and RSVP for this Wednesday.


We will also be resuming all youth Life Groups on campus on August 23rd! For those not ready to attend an in-person group, we are providing two zoom classes that will meet at 11AM on Sundays. As with Wednesday night, just click the button below to learn more or get connected to a Life Group.

Sunday Morning Bible Studies

Beginning on Sunday, August 23rd, we will provide several temporary age specific Bible studies that will meet at our Newberry Rd Campus. These groups will not replace your Life Group community but will provide an opportunity for in-person small group Bible study. If you are interested in one of these groups, click the button below and let our team know. Please note that everyone attending will be required to wear a face mask.

Mid-Week Life Groups

All life groups have the option to meet in person mid-week. These groups can meet on one of our campuses by reservation or in someones home. Any group meeting in-person will be required to wear face masks. To make a reservation for one of our campus locations, email mtaylor@westsidebaptist.org.

Zoom Groups

All Life Groups will continue to have the option to meet online as well. If you would like to get connected with a group that is meeting online, click the button below and let our team know how we can help.

Now that we are back with live in-person worship, there is an opportunity for volunteers. Those who are comfortable with it are welcomed to connect with their team leader and begin serving on Sundays. Are you interested in serving and not connected yet?
