Happy Mother’s Day!!

S.O.A.P.ING WEEKLY  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 each week.  Then come prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word.  The passages for the rest of the May series are:   May 21 – Revelation 2:8-10 and May 28 – Revelation 2:12-17 

SUMMER 5 DAY CLUB  The end of the school year means that summer 5 Day Club is coming June 19-23, 9am-noon each day for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Our theme is Discovering Jesus.  You will have the opportunity to help through volunteering as a leader, and through bringing items needed for crafts for the week.  If you’d like to volunteer, see Donna Rodgers.  If you’d like to donate, a list of needed items will be available in a couple of weeks.  Children should be registered at www.westwoodchurch.com.  Go to the Children tab, and drop down to the 5 Day Club button.

A COUPLE OF PRACTICAL OPPORTUNITIES

Choices Women's Clinic is on the home stretch in moving to their new location at 1851  W Colonial.  There are a number of finishing projects that you can volunteer to help get completed.  The need is for practical help and donation of materials in several areas.  See the flyer for a list of projects and items.

When you drove on to our parking lot this morning, you likely noticed the desperate need for repairs and resurfacing.  Almost $5,000 has been donated for this project.  We still need $2,000-$4,000 to get the job done right.  If you can help (over and above your normal giving), please designate “parking lot” on your envelope or online gift.  We’re finalizing bids, and will be starting soon.
