BASICS If you have been attending Westwood Church for a while, and would like to know more about why and how we engage in ministry in West Orlando, you’ll want to consider taking the BASICs class. The next BASICs class is scheduled for Sunday, September 27th, immediately following the worship service. Lunch will be provided, and we will meet for about an hour in the Conference Room. There is about an hour’s worth of advance preparation for you to do before attending the class. Please note “BASICs” on your Communication Card, or contact the office if you would like to be included.

SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS If you have been watching any news, you are aware of the crisis that has come about as hundreds of thousands of refugees are fleeing Syria. Our partners in the C&MA on the ground in the Middle East are faithfully ministering to as many families as they can. Let’s all be looking for ways to help in being The Church to those who are suffering as ISIS continues to gain more ground and persecute anyone who does not conform to their radical views. Prayer first, followed by practical involvement as the Holy Spirit prompts us!

DISTRICT CONFERENCE We are hosting District Conference this coming weekend, Friday and Saturday, September 18-19. Thank you to all who have signed up to help. If you haven’t received your assignment, please contact the church office. Everyone is invited to join us, especially for the Friday evening service when Jeff Simpson will be officially ordained Immediately following today's service, we will need to stack the chairs in the back sections as we prepare for District Conference. Please stay and help, if you can.

CHOICES WOMEN’S CENTER LUCERNE PROJECT Please join with us as we pray for the purchase of new facilities for the Choices Women’s Center. The original goal was to raise $750,000 by September 15th. Many small, and some large donations have come in. Let’s contribute, and pass the word to complete the fundraising. Please pray with us for God’s miraculous provision for this vital life-saving ministry.
