Services during COVID

Due to the concern of possible spreading of the corona virus, we are following recommendations by the government and the California Southern Baptist Convention. 


Sunday morning services consist of adult Bible study and the worship service. Masks should be worn as you enter the building. Temperatures will be taken. Hand sanitizer is available in the lobby. Some pews have been blocked off to help encourage social distancing.


The worship service is being broadcast simultaneously on Pastor Bob's Zoom room at 11 AM. Once you have the Zoom app downloaded on your smart phone or computer, clicking on the link should take you directly to the room.


Online donations can still be done through EastTithe. You can find the link in the column to the right where it says "Online Giving". When you give online, choose where you want your donation to go by selecting one of the items from the FUND box.


Check back here regularly for the latest news and events in your area.

Online Giving is now possible!

Looking for an easy way to give? How about online giving? You will be taken to Easy Tithe who handles our online giving. Thank you

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 label 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.

It is that season again...CHRISTMAS...and what better way to get in the mood than with a good old-fashioned Sing-Along! Mark your calendar and set aside time to join us on Saturday, December 19th, at 6 PM, as we come together and to sing our favorite Christmas hymns and carols. We will be sharing more Christmas joy afterwards as we share our favorite Christmas treats.
