  • A Place For Me?A grade school sports field. The department you've been transferred to at work. The neighbourhood you just moved into. A church you are checking out on the web. What do all these places have in common? A question you have asked your whole life: "Is there a place for me?"

    The answer at Westside Bible Church: "Yes!"

    At Westside you'll never have to worry about being picked last for a team. We don't view church life as a competition. It's a place to help each other grow, not an arena where only the cool people benefit the most.

  • Due to an upgrade in the software that runs our site, the module that manages the links to our older audio and video files is not working. However you can still access that material by following a couple of simple steps.

  • Yes, you are on the Westside Bible Church website, and yes something is up.

    As you have noticed the site looks very different and that is because we are updating the software that runs it. So for a short while some of the features you have gotten used to are not available.

    We hope to have the site back to better than normal very soon.

  • Scripture Cake

    Biblical ingredients:

    1/2 cup Judges 5:25 (mentions water, milk and curds)
    1 cup Jeremiah 6:20
    3 of Isaiah 10:14
    3 tablespoons 1 Samuel 14:25
    1/2 teaspoon Leviticus 2:13
    2 cups 1 Kings 4:22
    2 teaspoons Amos 4:5 (mentions leavened bread)
    1 teaspoon 2 Chronicles 9:9 (mentions spices)
    1 teaspoon 2 Chronicles 9:9
    1/2 cup Judges 4:19 (mentions milk and water)
    1 cup finely chopped 1 Samuel 30:12 (mentions fig cake and raisins)
    1 cup thinly sliced Numbers 17:8
    1 cup 1 Samuel 30:12

    Actual ingredients:

    1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    1 cup sugar
    3 eggs, room temperature, separated
    3 tablespoons honey
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/2 cup milk
    1 cup finely chopped dried figs
    1 cup thinly sliced almonds
    1 cup raisins

    Note: One hour before you start to prepare ingredients, put a metal or glass mixing bowl and mixing blades in the freezer, to use when it is time to beat the egg whites.

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes before baking.

    In another bowl, mix butter, sugar and egg yolks until creamy. Mix honey and set aside.

    In another bowl, sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

    Mix 1/3 of the creamed mixture and 1/3 of the milk into the flour mixture. Mix well. Add another 1/3 of the creamed mixture and 1/3 of the milk and mix well. Add the remaining creamed mixture and the last of the milk and mix well.

    Stir in finely chopped figs, sliced almonds and raisins. Set aside.

    Remove chilled bowl and mixing blades from freezer and beat egg whites on high until light and fluffy, approximately 1 minute. Be careful not to over-beat.

    Fold egg whites gently into batter. Let rest for a few minutes. Spray a 9-by-13-inch pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into pan and bake for 45 minutes in 325-degree oven.
