Two Unique Gatherings – 10am

The Sanctuary

Join us for a sacred gathering with traditional liturgy, a thoughtful message, and resounding organ. Congregational music is chosen from The United Methodist Hymnal along with many other sources and most of it is led by a large pipe organ and choir. The themes of this service and its music and preaching is usually coordinated with the traditional seasons of the church year as observed by many Christian denominations. The liturgy lasts about sixty minutes and includes Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. The pastors and choir wear vestments, and the overall feeling of the service is one of dignity and reverence without being stiff. Assistive listening devices are available from the ushers.


The Loft

Join us for an innovative gathering with spiritual conversation, creativity, coffee, and music for those willing to re-think church. Lasting about 90 minutes, the gatherings take place in an intimate, relaxed environment upstairs at Westwood. When you arrive, simply follow the signs pointing to The Loft. For more information, visit www.TheLoftLA.org.


Follow-Up – 11:30am

Have you ever wished you could raise your hand in Church and ask a question? Have you ever thought about elbowing your pew neighbor and asking, “What do you think about that?” Have you ever longed to go deeper, pursue farther, and think critically about topics of faith?
After The Sanctuary or The Loft, grab a cup of coffee and join us for Follow-Up. This weekly class is taught by a variety of informative speakers focused on a different topic each week. Four times a year, we invite noted authors or speakers to join us for a special session, and other weeks are taught by our knowledgeable staff and leaders. Check the Sunday Worship Guide for the location, which is usually in Wesley Room or the Fellowship Hall.
