S.O.A.P.ING SCRIPTURE IN JANUARY  Remember that in the month of January, as we study the book of Colossians, we are going to take some time each week to S.O.A.P through the passage in advance of Sunday service.  Then come each Sunday prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word.  Here’s the rest of the January schedule.

       January 22 – Colossians 1:24-29
       January 29 – Colossians 2:1-15 

SECOND WEDNESDAY  If you weren’t here on Wednesday night you missed a tremendous blessing as we prayed for each other’s needs, personally and individually. Using Paul’s prayer for the Colossian Church as an example, we prayed through the Scripture for each other. Don’t miss the next Second Wednesday, February 8th!

SPECIAL NIGHT OF PRAYER & WORSHIP  Tonight at  6:00 pm, at Neighborhood Alliance Church. See Pastor Dan following the service this morning if you want to ride together.

STRATEGIC PRAYER CALL 24/7  If you want more information about this Prayer Movement  and how to pray for Orlando specifically and our country in general, please see Milt Monell.

GOOD NEWS CLUB at Prairie Lake Elementary School  We continue to look for additional team members for our GNC team – especially men. If you have a couple of hours on Friday after- noons available and want to be a part of this incredible harvest opportunity, please contact Donna Rodgers to get more information.

SOUPER SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5  On Super Bowl Sunday, we will begin collecting cans of soup (and other canned items) for the Food Pantry at Prairie Lake Elementary School. Please bring as many cans as possible to meet the needs of our “mission school”

2016 GIVING STATEMENTS  Giving Statements for 2016 will be available in a couple of weeks.  You will be able to pick yours up from the back table, and save Westwood the cost of postage.

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY   All Community Group leaders are encouraged to stay following the service next Sunday, January 22nd, for a very brief (30 minutes) training for using the Gospel Centered Life small group material.  If you will be able to stay for this training, lease note on your Communication Card or notify Pastor Tom by emailing tomw@westwoodchurch.com.
