Gratitude - def.: "the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness." Thanksgiving is a time of year to reflect and respond with gratitude. As a church, we are thankful for our local mission partners who help us serve our neighbors and families-in-need in Topeka and Shawnee County. We value our partnerships with local charities like Doorstep, Inc., Habitat for Humanity, Harvesters Community Food Network, and Let's Help. To show our appreciation for and to return kindness to our partners, we will share our Thanksgiving Offering this year with our local community agencies. I invite you to give generously as one way of expressing your gratitude for God's generosity and goodness to us this year. You may give in person, by mail, or online at west-side-baptist-church.square.site. Blessings, Pastor Ivan+ ... See MoreSee Less
