MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY  Our offices will be closed tomorrow, May 29th, for the Memorial Day holiday.  If you should need to reach the Staff due to an emergency, please call the office and leave a message on extension 12, 13 or 22, and we will return your call as soon as possible.  As you rest & relax with family & friends, be sure to take some time to remember and honor those who gave their lives in service to our country.

 C&MA NATIONAL COUNCIL  Council begins in Columbus, OH on Tuesday, May 30th, and goes through Sunday, June 4th.  Pastor Dan, Cathy Sullivan and Matt & Maxine Kelly will attend representing Westwood Church.  You will be able to participate by Livestream.  The schedule of webcasts includes the morning sessions with John Stumbo, beginning at 9:00, the evening services beginning at 7:00, the Saturday Missions Rally at 3:15 pm, and the Sunday service at 9:30 am.  Go to www.cmalliance.org/events/2017/council.  Please be praying for the pastors, official workers, and leaders of our denomination as they gather to be challenged spiritually, to connect with one another, and to do necessary business.

PARKING LOT RESURFACING  The resurfacing project begins this next week.  Please be watchful and careful whenever you come to Westwood over the next couple of weeks while the work is ongoing.  There will always be places available to park, but you will need to watch for specific directions as different areas of the parking lot are blocked off for repairs.  We are still a little shy of funds needed to fully cover the cost of this project.  If you can contribute, just mark your gift “parking lot.”

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 4 – Revelation 2:18-29
    June 11 – Revelation 3:1-6
    June 18 – Revelation 3:7-13
    June 25 – Revelation 3:14-22 

SUMMER 5 DAY CLUB  5 Day Club is 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 by volunteering as a leader, and by  donating items needed for crafts for the week.  If you’d like to volunteer, see Donna Rodgers.  A list of needed items is available for you to take shopping with you.  We’ll need to have everything collected by June 11.  Registration is open.  Children can be registered at www.westwoodchurch.com. Just go to the Children tab, and drop down to the
5 Day Club button.

BACKYARD SUNDAY MUNCH  On Sunday, July 2nd, we will have a MUNCH immediately following service.  Details will follow in the next couple of weeks.  Put this on your calendar now so you don’t mess the fun!
