Experience Christmas at West Side

Christmas at West Side is far more than lights and music, hot cocoa and train rides. It's a starting point for people to discover how much the birth of Jesus matters for them. It's an on-ramp for people to begin understanding how much the King of the Universe loves them. No matter who you are, our creative and engaging services and environments have something for EVERYONE! For the best experience, make plans to join us on campus on December 22, 23 or 24. Can’t make it to campus? Join us online at and YouTube.

Invite a Friend

Christmas is better with someone by your side. So ask a friend to join. Consider sending a text or sharing an invite on social media. If you don’t have someone to join you, don’t let that stop you! We’re certain you’ll enjoy your experience even if you’re flying solo.


Show Up

Wear what makes you comfortable and arrive a few minutes early to grab a warm drink and find a good seat. After the service, stick around and snap a photo at one of our photo booths, decorate gingerbread cookies, take a ride on the Festival of Trees train and enjoy the company of others!
