Haiti Missions trip - June 19-23 *PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR * our Haiti Mission Trip team of 12 students and 6 adults. They are headed to Haiti this week to join No Child Hungry in their ministry to orphans. Fund-raising is almost complete, however donations are still being accepted to help underwrite the cost of the trip. Mark your offering envelope “Haiti Missions” if you would like to contribute. *THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY IN BEING THE CHURCH TO OUR YOUNG FRIENDS IN HAITI! *All Haiti Team Members should plan to stay for a few minutes immediately following the service today to pack gift bags for the children at the orphanage. Thank you to all who contributed items for the gift bags!

*2016 ELECTIONS *Westwood Church has been asked by Bill Cowles, Supervisor of Elections for Orange County, to be a polling place for the 2016 elections. We have also been given the option to Adopt-a-Precinct, which could result in income to Westwood of nearly $5,000. To adopt the precinct for which we would be the polling place requires that we provide volunteer poll workers for all three 2016 elections: the Presidential Preference Primary on March 15, the Primary Election on August 30, and the General Election on November 8. We will need a minimum of 9 volunteers (all but 2 must be registered voters, and all must be at least 16 years old) who will donate their time for any or all of those days. If you think you might be interested, please contact the office at 407.295.4318 or office@westwoodchurch.com.
