Current Sermon Series


It seems as if everyone has something to say and we are constantly inundated with words.


Most of the words we hear we forget.  Most of the words we hear don’t matter.  Most of the words we hear are easily discarded.


But not the words of Jesus.


We invite you to join us at West Bowles this Fall for a study of the SACRED LETTERS.

AWANA is a a Bible-centered program for children 2 years old through 6th grade. We meet Mondays, during the school year, from 6-7:45pm (Puggles & Cubbies meet 6-7:30pm). Club nights include games, praise and worship, Bible stories, scripture memory, prayer, special awards, and many other exciting activities and special events. Through Awana, children grow to know, love, and serve Christ, and build godly relationships with other children and caring adults. Register Sundays in the foyer thru 9/14, or online at www.westbowles.com thru 9/18!

MOPS meets the second and fourth Tuesday morning of the month at 9:30am.  This ministry provides moms the opportunity to be inspired, encouraged, educated, mentored and just be with other moms.

Dance Ministry



The dance ministry is starting their fall session. Current class offerings this fall include (both on Wednesdays):  Ballet for ages 4 to 7 years from 4:45 to 5:30pm and Lyrical/Jazz for 8 years to teens at 5:30 to 630pm.  Contact Heather Johnson at 720.648.2334 or dance@westbowles.com for more information or to inquire about an Adult Worship Dance class.



It’s time to sing!  If you have a passion for worshiping God with your voice, and if you would enjoy getting to know some fantastic people, give choir a try!  Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm.  Just show up at 6:45, park in the lower lot, enter through the SW doors, and come to the choir room to register for the Fall Season.  Childcare provided.  Contact Rebecca at 303.225.0738 if you have any questions.


Beth Moore Study


A 9 week Beth Moore Bible Study will begin on Thursday, September 18 at 9:30am in the meeting room next to the Library.  The study is “Children of the Day” by Beth Moore. Contact Caryl Anderson at 303.973.4244 with questions.


Woman to Woman


Women Bible Study


Our official Woman to Woman year has started but it is never to late to join in!  We meet on Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:00am in the lower Gathering Place and on Thursday nights from 6:00 to 7:30pm in the main level Gathering Place.  On Thursday nights we serve a light meal at 6pm and start our study at 6:30pm.  We hope you’ll join us!  Call Lisa Beatty at 303.478.3672 or email dlmmmb@yahoo.com with questions.


Precept Bible Study



Ladies, please consider joining our Precepts Bible Study fall session on Thursdays at 9:30am.  We’ll study the Book of John which centers on Jesus and the truth of his divinity. This study underscores the very foundation of the gospel.  Enjoy the fellowship of other women as we explore a more intimate knowledge of Jesus as the Son of God and Light of the World.  If you are new to our study or have questions, call Cherry Shaler at 303.979.3635.  Don’t miss this opportunity to gain deeper Biblical insight and also expand your involvement in the West Bowles community.


Young Professional Men’s Group



We are looking to start a men’s small group for those in their post college/early career years (ages 25-35).  We want to establish a place for fellowship, support and accountability where men can build and strengthen each other.  The group will meet twice a month on the first and third Sunday at 6pm in the Gathering Place Cafe with occasional meetings outside of the church for fellowship.  We hope to create community where men can build bonds that will support them as they grow in their walk with Christ.  Contact Erik Taylor at erik.albert.taylor@gmail.com with questions.


New College Group


Only about 30% of American churched youth say that the church will play a part in their lives when they leave home.  Pray for our youth as they enter college this fall.  The newly formed WBCC College Group – THRIVE, led by Heather Benedict, meets on Thursday nights in the lower GP.  If you are 18-25 years old or know someone who is, contact Heather @ 720.917.5780 for info.
