BACKYARD SUNDAY MUNCH  Today is Backyard Sunday!  We will celebrate Independence Day together with very casual worship followed by a cookout MUNCH.  Following the worship service, lunch – consisting of burgers, hot dogs, buns, corn-on-the-cob, sides, drinks and desserts, will be served. You may want to play games (board games indoors, and water and other games outdoors) after you eat.  Make sure you spend some time getting to know others in the Body better – and maybe even meet somebody you haven’t met before!

INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES MAT  The International Ministries Ministry Action Team has not been functioning for the past couple of years.  We are pleased to announce that Matt Kelly has agreed to lead that team, whose purpose is to keep us as a Body, informed about, and focused on the work of spreading the Gospel throughout the world – through the Christian & Missionary Alliance and through other
individuals/ministries in whom Westwood is regularly investing financial support.  Matt is in the process of building a team.  If you are passionate about missions, or interested in learning more & participating, indicate International Ministries on your Communication Card or contact Matt directly.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY ANNUAL SUMMER SPLASH  Save the Date of Sunday, July 30th (immediately following the worship service), if you are a regular or occasional volunteer in Children’s Ministry.  You’re invited to join us for a splash party to let you know how greatly appreciated you are!  Details will follow in the next couple of weeks.

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 this month are (choose one each week, or consider reading them all):
