PRAYING IN 2018 - The most important thing we can do for ourselves, our families, our local church, our community, our country and our world is to pray.  Pray every day!  And join us for the RED Prayer Initiative – praying once a month specifically for our students and Student Ministry leaders.  The first gathering will be Sunday, January 28th, at the Durands’ home (32 Justin Dr, Apopka), beginning at 4 pm.  Please sign up on one of the clipboards to let us know you will attend.

GOOD NEWS CLUB - GNC has been on winter break but will be resuming on Friday, February 2nd. Please be praying for our volunteers, especially lifting up the teachers, as they prepare for the new series.  And pray for the kids and their families!

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 Scripture passage for next week is     January 28 – Galatians 2:11-21

YEAR-END GIVING STATEMENTS - The year-end giving statements are ready and available to pick up from the baskets on the table at the back of the Sanctuary. They are alphabetized to make it easy for you to find yours.  If you take it home with you, you will save us the cost of postage.  Thank you for your faithful support of the ministries of Westwood Church! 

RED MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY - We are looking for those who have a passion for our young people, and who would be interested in being volunteer sponsors for RED Student Ministry.  If you think this might be how you are designed and gifted, please contact Tyson Simon for more information.

CHOICES VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY - Choices Women’s Clinic needs volunteers for several roles.  If you think this ministry might be a fit for you, plan to attend the Volunteer Preview on Friday, February 9th from 9:30 am-11:00 am, to hear about ministry opportunities available as we work to change the lives of women, men, and babies and make a difference for LIFE!  If you are interested, please call Michelle at 407-244-5527 or email her at michelle@choiceswomensclinic.com
