SECOND WEDNESDAY - Second Wednesday is this week, March 14th.  Plan now to join us as adults, students and children gather to pray for the needs of our Body, our country, our world.

EASTER EGG HUNT - There will be an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31st, at 10 am. All grade school aged children are encouraged to come and invite friends. You can help by donating candy and small toys to fill gift bags to be given away at the Easter Egg Hunt, Small toys should be Easter/Christian in nature (not Easter Bunny please) or generic tiny stuffed animals and such.  Please bring your items by Palm Sunday (March 25th).  We will also need adult and RED student volunteers to help setup for the event and hide eggs.  Please sign up at the information desk in the lobby to volunteer to help.  And, everyone, please pray that the kids and families from Prairie Lake Elementary will come!

EASTER CHOIR - We are looking for those who would like to join the choir on Easter Sunday.  If you love to sing, you qualify.  Contact Jaime Largaespada to get more information.

ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING - Sunday, March 25th, there will be a brief Congregational Meeting immediately following the worship service for the purpose of electing Elders and approving the 2018-2019 budget.  All members should plan to stay.

KRISPY KREMES FOR PASSION CAMP - RED students will attend Passion Camp in Daytona Beach in June.  Their first fundraiser is selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts.  They are available for purchase individually or by the box in the lobby before and/or after service today. Or you can purchase gift cards, which you can use at any Krispy Kreme  later.   And, of course, if you can help with scholarships, please indicate “RED Retreat” on the Other line on your envelope, and put it in the offering.  All funds will be distributed among the students as needed.

RIGHTNOW MEDIA - RightNow Media is a phenomenal resource which is available to all regular attenders of Westwood Church.  There are Bible studies, teaching videos and much more from the most well-known Christian authors and speakers.  If you have not yet gotten a password which gives you access, simply put your name, “RightNow Media” and your email address on your Communication Card, and we’ll send you an email to get you started.
