Worship Services Canceled January 17th & 20th 

Due to exposure to the Covid virus by your pastoral staff and Praise Team and others we are canceling our normal Bible Study and normal worship service for this coming Sunday and our Wednesday activities for next week. We would rather miss these services than unknowingly expose any of you to this virus.

Pastor Blake Becnel, through Facebook live stream at 10:30AM, will share his next message from his series on the Minor Prophets. He will be focusing on the Old Testament book of Joel, chapters 2:18 – 3:21. The title of Pastor Blake’s message will be “Joel Part Two: What Awaits You in the Valley of Decision?” Remember you can access this message by searching on Facebook for “Westside Baptist Church Ponchatoula LA”. We will also post this message on our church website after the service (www.westsideponch.com). We hope we all can join together virtually to hear God’s Word.

Thank you for your understanding as we take these measures to protect you. We look forward to resuming our regular services and activities on Sunday, January 24.

Please let others, who you are aware may not have access to email, know about this announcement.

Continue to pray for those with the Covid virus and for our church as we seek to minister to those around us.

Relaunch of Children & Youth Programs

We announced Sunday that we would be relaunching our children and youth Sunday School on Sunday, September 6th. We will have our nursery open as part of that as well as during our worship service. We will not have our children’s extended session during the worship service for the time being but Dana Becnel will have activity sheets relateD to our worship time for all our children. Most of our Adult Sunday School classes are already meeting. Please check with your Sunday School teacher for details.

Our Wednesday evening activities for all ages will begin again the following Wednesday, September 9th.

Continue to pray for wisdom as we take these steps. We continue to support each family as you make the decision about when to return physically to these opportunities.

Our plans are to continue to live stream our worship services in the future.

God bless….
