We give out of a heart of gratitude for all that God has given us. Giving is an act of worship that allows us to bless others and to be a part of what God is doing in our community and around the world through Westwood Community Church. Your gifts will be used to support our ministries that spiritually nurture our church family, help those in need around our community, as well as spread God’s love around the world. Your gifts have impact here, near and far.
