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 getting a new group started, contact dena@westark.org. May God bless us as we continue to find ways to connect with Him and each other.
