Lovewhereyou.live

It is easy to say you love where you live. It is much harder to show it, partly because of the way we think about how cities are built (roads, schools, infrastructure, etc...). We often see ourselves as spectators to the process because it all seems so very big. What is needed is an opportunity to show our neighbors and our city that we and they have a powerful role to play.

Everything in our society teaches us to use our talents for ourselves – but deep down inside we know we were made for more than that. We know instinctively that there is a bigger purpose in life. It’s that deep desire inside us, the desire to make a difference.

At Westline Church, our dream is simple: love and serve the world the way Jesus did.
