My Westwood


We want to support you

Life can be filled with challenges and transitions that may leave us discouraged, confused, feeling disconnected, and alone. We desire to be a place where people in need experience the love of Christ and the support of one another. Our care ministries address a variety of personal losses, addictions and struggles and provide ways to heal and grow. Let us know how we can come alongside you.

Prayer Requests

Prayer team members would love to pray with you after any of our worship services. You can find them up front at the conclusion of the service. You may also submit prayer requests on the information card inside your program and then place them in the offering plate. Or you may request prayer now. Prayer requests are considered confidential and there will be no personal follow up.

Pastoral Care

A Pastor is available 24 hours a day for crisis needs and for those needing spiritual assistance. Hospital visits, anointing with oil and prayer are ministries available. For assistance, please call the church office at 952.224.7400. If it is after hours, please choose the prompt for the pastor on-call.

Hospital Visits

If you would like a visit from a member of Westwood's Care Team or if you would like someone to pray with you prior to surgery, please call us at 952.224.7400. Due to Federal Privacy laws, please inform the hospital that you would like your information shared with Westwood.

Counseling Resources

Westwood provides pastoral counseling that seeks to integrate Christian resources of Scripture, prayer and community. Counseling sessions are generally brief (1-3 sessions) and referral to professional Christian counselors is provided.

Life Events

Westwood is a community that stands beside each other in celebration and in sorrow. Because we aren’t meant to experience either alone. Learn more about support for life events like birth of a child or adoption, baby dedication, weddings or funerals.

*Westwood Community Church often makes referrals to professional Christian counselors when more than brief pastoral counseling is needed. We try to recommend clinics and clinicians whose views and practices are in accord with the Westwood Statement of Faith, values, or philosophy of ministry. It is not always possible to ensure complete agreement. Persons seeking a counselor are urged to carefully screen prospective counseling providers to their own satisfaction.
