S.O.A.P.ING 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.  Then come prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word.  The passages for June are:  June 18 – Revelation 3:7-13, June 25 – Revelation 3:14-22 

SUMMER 5 DAY CLUB  5 Day Club is just a week away -  June 19-23, 9am-noon each day, for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Our theme is Discovering Jesus.  Those of you who offered to donate craft and/or food items should have brought them with you today.  If you forgot, please be sure to bring them by the office by Tuesday (and let Donna Rodgers know).  On Wednesday, we will need to purchase anything that is still needed.  Registration is open.  Children can still be registered at www.westwoodchurch.com. Just go to the Children tab, and drop down to the 5 Day Club button.  Don’t just register your kids.  Invite their friends from school or your neighborhood.  What a great opportunity this is for our children to be The Church where they play!

GOT QUESTIONS?  Next month, our message series will be Ask-it-ology. If there are questions or issues you want to hear addressed, please submit them on your Communications Card this week or next.  We already have a good start on some tough questions.  Don’t miss the opportunity to get yours in the mix.

PARKING LOT RESURFACING  The resurfacing project is in progress.  Please be watchful and careful whenever you come to Westwood while the work is ongoing.  There will be places to park, but you will need to watch for specific directions as different areas of the parking lot are blocked off for repairs.  We still need about 800.00 to fully cover the cost of this project.  If you can contribute, just mark your gift “parking lot.”

SECOND WEDNESDAY  This week, June 14th is Second Wednesday. The whole congregation – adults, students and children –  gather for prayer.  Come and join your fellow believers at 7:00 PM.  Prepare to be blessed!

BACKYARD SUNDAY MUNCH  Sunday, July 2nd, will be Backyard Sunday!  We will celebrate Independence Day together with very casual worship followed by a cookout MUNCH.  Dress for a picnic, bring your lawn chairs or blankets to sit on DURING SERVICE as well as for our indoor picnic MUNCH following.  Burgers, hot dogs, buns, corn-on-the-cob and condiments will be provided.  We’re asking you to bring drinks, sides and desserts based on the first letter of your last name:
    A-H – Dessert
    I-P – Drinks
    Q-Z – Side Dishes
Also, come with yard games or board games to play both outdoors and indoors after lunch.  It will be tons of fun and good food and fellowship!
