The Chrismon Ministry

Chrismon’s are Christian symbols that teach us about the person, life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Here at Westwood, we embrace this century old tradition by offering workshops throughout the year. During these sessions, a Chrismon is constructed as we listen to a Bible Study reflecting on the meaning of that symbol.

During Christmas, we display our Chrismons on trees throughout the Church, inspiring the true meaning of Christmas.


The Griefshare Ministry

It hurts to lose someone. Find help at GriefShare.

GriefShare is God’s ministry to people who have lost a loved one because of death.

 GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences, the loss of a loved one because of death. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

 GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

 Westwood’s GriefShare program has been in existence since 1996. Its leaders have experienced a loss in their lives and want to help you as you move from mourning to joy. It is a 13-week program that is Bible based and Christ centered. Based on the size and ages of the group, as well as the individual situations, groups may be divided to meet each person’s needs; i.e. teens, those who have lost spouses/significant others, those who have lost parents, etc.

 Also, a Surviving the Holidays event is held each year in early December on a Saturday morning. This event participants review a video and have group discussion with their respective grieving peers, a time of seeing God work in people’s lives who are/have been through grief with their Miracle Moments, and a candlelight memorial service for their loved one.

The Church Garden Ministry

Westwood began a garden ministry in 2012 in an effort to provide food assistance to needy people in our community. Each year the garden has produced over 2,000 pounds of fresh vegetables. Once harvested, the produce is taken to organizations such as Western Wake Crisis so that it can be given directly to people in need.

In addition to providing food, the garden has proven to be an excellent hands-on learning experience for our children and youth as well as many adults. Everyone is invited to help plant, cultivate, water, and harvest the vegetables. Through working together in the garden we have become more aware of the needs in our surrounding community, our young people have learned how vegetables are grown, and we have all gained an appreciation for the work that it requires to put food on the table.

If you would like more information or would like to help with the garden this year, please contact the church office at 919-469-9393.
