Westside Weekend 2015 was held March 6 to 8 at Camp Cedaredge in Cedaredge, Colorado. We had 115 people from around the Utah/Western Colorado District of the Rocky Mountain Conference. Our theme was "Made In The Image". The youth and adults learned about how special each one of us is, created by God in His image, wonderfully and beautifully made. Our keynote speaker Rev. Jerry Herships, from Denver After Hours ministry, shared his passion for reaching outside the church walls to minister to the least of these. A couple of the important messages we took home was, "Are you putting more love into the world" and "There is nothing you can do to make God love you more or less." Our large group and worship times were led by Seeking Still from Montrose UMC.
