WASH ‘N WORSHIP FOR PASSION CAMP - RED students will attend Passion Camp in Daytona Beach in June.  As a fundraiser, they will be washing cars during Sunday morning groups and service next week, March 25th.  Suggested donation is $10 for outside only, $20 for both inside and out.  However, they will be happy to wash your vehicle for whatever donation you can make to help them get to camp   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.

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:  March 25 – Galatians 4:21-31.

ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING - Next 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.

GOOD FRIDAY PRAYER EXPERIENCE - Join us Friday, March 30th, at 7:00 pm, as we pray, worship together, and contemplate the sacrifice of the Savior for us.  Adults will gather in the sanctuary, and kids in the Reign Forest.  The service should last about an hour.

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!
