Westview Christian Church
(Disciples of Christ)
Serving on the Westside of Indianapolis for about 50 years, Westview is a diverse congregation where every person is welcome to worship, learn, fellowship with others, and be involved in mission. We have a friendly style of worship which includes a time for reading and interpreting the Bible each week, enjoying uplifting music, learning about various service projects, and sharing the Lord’s Supper. Congregants come from various backgrounds, cultures, and religious traditions, including those with no previous connection to Christianity. As a fellowship group, we are connected with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), which means we allow individual thought and ideas. No creedal statements or tests of faith are required for membership. We believe in God and claim Jesus Christ as our Guide and Lord.
Each Sunday we welcome visitors to join us in worship, learning, and thinking about the faith. We admit we don’t have all the answers, so we invite you to join us in questioning, investigating, and learning about how faith in Jesus Christ can make a difference in how we live in the world today.
If you would like more information about Westview, feel free to call the church office (317-291-7871) or email Rev. Mulligan (firstname.lastname@example.org).

February 24 We treasure the warm passages of scripture where we see Jesus accepting everyone, forgiving our sins (no matter how terrible), and encouraging each of us to do our best because God loves us. The passage we hear this coming Sunday is not one of those. From the Sermon on the Plain, found in the Gospel of Luke, these words of Jesus challenge us to be more kind and generous to others than anyone can be. The ideas are sharp and do not let us wiggle free. How can we love our enemies? How can we bless those who curse us? Join us for some of the difficult teachings of Jesus. You might want to read Luke 6:27-38 in preparation for worship this Sunday at 10:30.
Prayer for the Week -
Prayer of Confession
Merciful God, we confess before you and one another the sins of our hearts and lives and of our life together. We have been too much concerned with the holiness of one another, and too little with our own; too much preoccupied with the behaviors and habits of one another, and too little with our own. Too often we have acted as though we were entitled to your favor, rather than as those who live by your mercy alone. Forgive us our sin of presumption. Humble us in mind and heart and lead us in the way that leads to life. Through Christ our Lord we pray Amen.
* Assurance of Pardon
Hear the good news: God’s truth is matched only by God’s mercy. Therefore, God spares us the judgement we are due in order to show us pardon beyond our deserving. By such love we are set free for joyful obedience. In the name of Jesus the Christ, we are forgiven. May God be praised! Amen.
Our website visitors might also appreciate reading Luke 13:1-9 and join us as we consider this passage on Sunday, "Dynamic and Positive ".
