WELCOME, TYSON, ABBIE & AVA - Be sure to greet Tyson, Abbie, Ava and Abbie’s father, Jonathan, and welcome them to
Westwood this morning.  We are so pleased to have the Simons join our ministry team.  You will have lots of opportunity to get to know them better over the next weeks and months.  Remember to pray with them and for them as they make the huge adjustment to Florida from Wyoming, and
to full-time ministry.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY FALL FEST - Fall Fest will be this Wednesday, October 25th.  All elementary aged children are invited to come, and encouraged to bring friends.  Our Good
News Club students have been invited as well. 
As in the past we will give out small prizes.  We will be filling gift bags this week, and still need some of the following – SMALL stuffed animals, novelty toys, balls, tops, stickers, rings, bracelets, etc.  If you can bring any of these by the office,  Monday or Tuesday, please let Donna Rodgers know when to expect you.

FIRST ALLIANCE FESTIVAL - If you are looking for a safe, fun option for your entire family, consider participating in the Festival by the Lake, at First Alliance Church 3800 Lake Underhill Rd. Orlando, FL 32803 this Saturday, October 28th, 5pm-8pm.  There will be Food Trucks, Vendors, Bounce Houses, Carnival Games, Hayrides, Live Music, and Face Painting. 

CHURCHWIDE COMMUNICATIONS - From time to time we email the entire congregation with updates and/or important information.  Apparently, this comes as a surprise to some of you, because you are not getting our emails.  One reason for that would be if we don’t have a correct email address for you.  If this is the case, you can correct the problem by filling out a yellow Communication Card with your name and current contact information, and we will update our records.  However, another issue may be the filtering procedure for your email service provider.  Please be sure to check your “Junk Mail,” “Spam” or “Promotions” folders at least a couple of times per week to see if you have a message from Westwood Church.

SENIORS MINISTRY - Thank you to Maurice Bender for his willingness to fulfill the need of coordinating a ministry to the Seniors in our Body (you know who you are!).  Watch for information about gatherings and events designed especially for our mature members.

SOAPING WEEKLY - In order to prepare your spirit for the message each week, S.O.A.P. through a passage (read the Scripture, make your Observation, find a specific Application, and write a Prayer) in advance of Sunday service.  Suggested SOAPing Scriptures for this week are Romans 12:9-21
