Westside Gathering changes Christmas gathering schedule to relieve stress


by Rhonda Massad

With the busy Christmas rush on us, Lead Pastor at Westside Gathering in Dollard des Ormeaux, David Manafo has taken a modern approach to the timing of Westside’s Christmas gathering.

“This is a twist to the Christmas schedule that we started to give people a break as they head into a busy couple of days of celebrating the birth of Jesus,” Manafo explained. “With all the preparations with many families being blended, there is added stress to the family. At Westside Gathering we have our Christmas gathering on Friday, December 23.”

There will be live music and an inspiring message to start the holidays.

Manafo promises a guided tour through several stories. The story of a fulfilled promise, the story of a newborn baby, the story of restored relationship will all be explored as well as The Christmas Story.
