For over 70 years the Westwood Presbyterian Church family of more than 500 members and friends has gathered to worship and learn, and scattered to love and serve. People from all ages, stages and life situations find a welcome in the WPC family. While we are a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA), many of our members hail from other Christian traditions. Still others come our way having little or no religious background. We affirm Jesus’ prayer that we may all be one. Thus, we are a family in which all races, nationalities, ages, sexual orientations and political persuasions, worship, learn and serve together. All are welcome here, whether deep into a faith journey or just beginning.
Taking seriously Christ’s call to love God with heart, soul and mind, we seek the one who is the ”light for our path,” and are intentional about becoming thoughtful, faithful and practicing Christians. Taking seriously Christ’s call to love our neighbor, we seek to be a ”light for our city,” an open channel of God’s love and grace. Our “little congregation that could,” has given birth to ministries that have made a significant difference to thousands who suffer and struggle. From PATH (People Assisting the Homeless), to FosterAll (formerly Child S.H.A.R.E.), to the Westside Food Bank, to Habitat for Humanity, we work to care for the poorest and most vulnerable of our city. From Nicaragua to New Orleans, our arms stretch beyond the Los Angeles region, caring for those who suffer.
You are welcome... you are invited to share with us the joy of worship; take advantage of the opportunity for spiritual growth; find a community of support; and accept the call to be agents of God’s love and grace in the world.
