Connections

We are so grateful there are ways to get and stay connected at WestArk! 

Below are wonderful opportunities to invite friends both new and old to join us as we fellowship and study 

together!  If you have a group that is meeting and not listed here, please let us know if you’d like to share your group. If you would like help to get your group online or get a new group started, we’d be happy to help!  Contact dena@westark.org.  God made us to be creative and resourceful, so it’s a beautiful thing to see how you are doing just that to get and stay connected as a family!
