West U Baptist

Worship // 8:30A & 11:00A
Community Groups // 9:45A

West U Baptist meets at 6218 Auden Street. Located in the heart of West University Place. Led by Campus Pastor Robby Dobbs, we invite you to join us for worship and Community Groups for children, students, and adults of all ages each Sunday morning. Our 8:30a worship service is full of the hymns that have shaped our faith for decades. At 11:00a, our band leads a time of worship with songs from today's most popular Christian worship artists. The same teaching pastor shares a powerful message at both of our morning services. When you arrive, make sure to visit our Welcome Desk located in the lobby just off of Milton Street.
