Services to be held online

Due to the concern of possible spreading of the coronavirus, we have decided to follow recommendations by the government and the California Southern Baptist Convention. 


All services and activities at the church have been suspended until further notice.


Pastor Bob will be preaching online with the Zoom connection, Sunday mornings at 11 AM:

Sermons are then being reposted on YouTube. Links will be posted here as they become available.

--YouTube sermons: March 29th - 3 John 9-14


Online tithing is still available. You can find the link in the column to the right where it says "Online Giving".

West Shores Baptist Church now has a Facebook page. You can find us at:

The page is in its initial stages, but as we learn the ropes (we're a bit slow when it comes to technology), we will keep adding to the page.

Redesigned Bulletin Cover

We gratefully thank Laura Brennan for her help in doing a line sketch for our bulletins.  She has provided several drawings which we may be using from time to time.

Operation Christmas Child

West Shores Baptist Church has been supporting Operation Christmas Child for several years now. As of 2016, we are a relay station for collecting shoeboxes to be shipped overseas. Local churches and individuals in the West Shores area can bring their packed shoeboxes to the church. We will then place them in larger boxes to be delivered to our designated collection point church in Palm Desert. From there, they will travel to Orange County for inspection to make sure there is nothing which could cause problems with customs or that the contents are materials that will not spoil or break in shipment. 


Collection week is scheduled in mid-November. Boxes brought to the church should have a check inclosed for $9 per shoe box to cover shipping costs. Payment can be done directly to Samaritan's Purse online and then print your lable with a tracking code that will allow you to find out where your shoe box went.


Want to pack a shoe box but don't have an empty box handy? Plastic shoe box size boxes can be obtained at many stores for around a dollar. OCC also makes heavy-duty plastic boxes which last year were sold at Hobby Lobby. You can also get empty shoe boxes from the church while our supplies last. Call the church to make arrangements to pick up a box or two...or five or ten... 760-395-1003. You can also go online to and build your shoebox online for a suggested donation of $25.
