THE STORY starts today!

We have been gearing up for The Story journey which begins with today’s message. You can still purchase your books at the table in the lobby. There are books for adults, students, kids (8-12), children(5-7) and little ones (0-4). It is recommended that adults, students and kids each have their own book. The Story for Children and The Story for Little Ones are intended to be read to the younger ones, so one book per family is sufficient. Remember, adults and students have the option of purchasing the ebook of their version of The Story through amazon.com or christianbook.com. Ready, Set, Go!

THE STORY SMALL GROUPS

All Westwood Small Groups will embark on The Story journey together for 31-weeks (September-November and January-May, with a break in December). It is our desire that all of us attend at least one small group during the week. In the lobby you will see a large calendar with leaders names on YELLOW post- it-notes. Pick a group/ time, put your name(s) and time on a PINK post-it-note, and stick it on the leader’s yellow note, or show your interest in starting a new group at a different time . Group lists are still being compiled. Call the church office 407-295-4381 if you need to get plugged into a small group. We are anticipating your enthusiastic participation!

BASICS

The next BASICs class is scheduled for Sunday, September 14th (immediately following the service – lunch is included). If you are interested in becoming an official member of Westwood Church, or if you just want more information about why and how we do ministry, you are encouraged to attend the BASICs class. Indicate on your Communication Card or contact the office at 407.295.4381 or office@westwoodchurch.com to let us know you are planning to attend.
