Generations

When West Jackson began in 1906, our founding members met together with a common goal: reaching the world for Christ. That day, they pooled their money and raised $10 so the Gospel could spread beyond the four walls of their meeting place. With that first meeting, they set the wheels in motion for a long tradition of making sacrifices so the news of Jesus could spread. Today, as we celebrate the multiple generations represented in our church, we build on that history of giving as we work together to leave a legacy for future generations.

Our current facility has served us well for nearly 25 years, but as our church has grown and changed, so have the ways we use our space. There are currently several spaces in our church which could be better utilized with some improvements. Below, you’ll learn more about some needs our long-range planning team has identified that we believe we can meet if we work together! Please join us in praying about how you can be a part of this exciting season in the life of our church.
