Westwood's Ministries

Come and join us in one of our well-loved ministries. Connect with the church staff today if you have any questions.

 We would love to hear from you!

Children's Ministry

Kids--join us for lots of fun, learning, and growing together.  Throughout the week, we learn about God's Story and how He's forming our stories. We play games and get crafty together too! Check out More Info below for lots of opportunities.

Youth Group

Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers, come and hang out at Youth Group! We have a ton of cool stuff going on like basketball tournaments, pizza eating contests, and much more! Not only do we have a lot of fun but we tackle serious issues going on with our youth today. 

Westwood On Wednesday


Sept-March, there’s something for everyone on Wednesday evenings. A delicious home-cooked meal is served 5:15-6:15pm (donations appreciated), followed by classes, mentorships, clubs, and youth group. All activities are free of charge.

Westwood Christian

Co-op Preschool

We love little ones, and strive to develop each child’s unique, God-given potential. Preschool classes for 3’s, 4’s, and Young 5’s are held in a loving Christian environment. Our preschool was established in 1981 and is licensed by the Michigan Department of Social Services. Click on More Info below for our Preschool Website.

Life Groups

What a blessing it is to walk through life, closely connected with others! We invite you to live your journey of faith with a small group. We have several who meet regularly for conversation, study, prayer, and service in the community.

Friendship Ministry

Westwood Church is ALIVE on Mondays, 6-8pm, with dozens of our friends with special needs and their fun mentors. Friends with differing intellectual abilities experience the joy of God and God's people. Laughter prevails throughout!

Adult Discipleship

Sept-May, Sun. at 9am and Wed. at 6:30pm, are great times for adults to continue growing as Christ-followers! Each week, Bible studies and topical classes are all meant to encourage us to be disciples who make disciples. We are continually finding and following Jesus.

Men’s Studies

Start the day out right on Tuesdays, 6:15am, with biblical truth and encouragement from other men. Not available early mornings? Another group of men meets each Wednesday, 6:30pm, for study, accountability, and friendship. For a place to belong, join us at either time.


This group of singles and couples and families meets regularly for friendship, food, fun, study, or service in the community. Men's Night Out, Women's Night Out, Camping trips, Bonfires, Sporting Events...check the calendar for what’s coming up soon!

Craft Connection

One Friday/month, 7pm-12am. It’s a full night of friends, relaxation and creativity! Bring your latest project and enjoy!

Kids Hope

We can make a difference in the life of a student at King Westwood Elementary, during a time when values are formed, self-esteem is developed, and problem-solving skills are acquired.  Volunteer mentors commit to meeting weekly with their student at school, spending time in friendship and simple activities such as reading, playing a game, or making a craft.

Recreational Sports

Co-ed Volleyball on winter Tuesday nights, and year-round co-ed ZUMBA classes on Thursday nights are some of the fun options.

Operation Christmas Child

The church is buzzing with activity in November as we serve as the Regional Dropoff Center for this international ministry. Thousands of shoeboxes packed with gifts and Bible studies for children pass through our doors, bringing good news and joy to the world.

Westwood Food Pantry

Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, our doors are open to scheduled clients of the Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes. What a blessing to be a part of assisting our neighbors.

Mothers of Preschoolers


M.O.P.S groups are fun, friendly communities that strive to meet the needs of every mom with children from birth-kindergarten. Moms gather on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays/month from Oct-May, 9:15-11:15am, while their children are lovingly cared for.
