*WELCOME TO DONNA HOWARD, DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN’S MINISTRY *We would like to welcome and introduce you to Mrs. Donna Howard, our new Director of Children’s Ministry. Donna started this week in this position, replacing Amy Simpson, who has moved with her husband Jeff, to another ministry at First Alliance Church, Orlando. If you have children in the nursery, pre-school, or K-5th grade, please introduce yourself to *Donna *and let her know how excited we are to have her in serving with us at Westwood. If you don’t have children, please welcome her anyway!

IF YOU MISSED 2ND WEDNESDAY PRAYER THIS WEEK, you missed a powerful time of prayer and information with Rev.Jim McGarvey. January is Sanctity of Life Month, and Rev. McGarvey challenged us to pray and to action regarding abortion in our country. Printed information on his ministry is available in the church office.

*END OF THE YEAR (2014) GIVING STATEMENTS *2014 Giving Statements are available on the table at the back of the sanctuary. They are in alphabetical order and we would encourage you to pick them up as quickly as possible. This will save the church the cost of mailing, and that is good stewardship of God’s resources. Thank you for your continued support of God’s Ministry through Westwood Church.

*ANOTHER WAY TO BE THE CHURCH *We need more people who are willing and able to help provide transportation for our guests from the Orlando Bridge. There is an approval procedure, so please see Pastor Dan for information. A special thanks to Keith Carney for many months of faithful service transporting our guests to and from services.

*FOOD PANTRY NEEDS YOUR HELP *Our supplies are low in the following categories: pasta sauce, canned fruit, hearty soups, powered milk, peanut butter & jelly, cereal, boxed mac & cheese, tuna/hamburger helper dinners. We have lots of vegetables and baby food. Thank you for your faithful contributions for our community.
