GNC SUNDAY  Today is Good News Club Sunday and we will have a closing program for the students of Prairie Lake Elementary and their families.  We extend a warm welcome to our guests, and trust you will experience the love and grace of Jesus as you worship with us!

BABY SHOWER  As part of her service at Choices Women’s Clinic, Cathy Sullivan has the privilege of mentoring young women.  One of those, Amy, who chose life for her baby, and is expecting a new little girl in August.  Amy (and Robbie) have a 7-year-old daughter, so they no longer have the necessities for a newborn.  We have the opportunity of living out the Gospel as we celebrate this new little life and bless this family with a shower for baby Alice.  All women and girls are encouraged to join us in the celebration on Sunday, May 20th, at 4 pm, in the lobby.  If you can help with planning and preparation, or if you cannot attend but would like to contribute toward a group gift, please contact Cathy.  Thank you for choosing to be The Church as we reach out to this young family!

SECOND WEDNESDAY  This coming Wednesday, May 9th, we will again gather to pray as the Body of Christ at Westwood.  We set aside this one Wednesday night each month to focus our hearts, minds and spirits on the work God is doing in us, through us and around us in our community and in our world.  All adults, students and children are encouraged to come pray together.
