WOMEN’S RETREAT District Women’s Retreat is this coming weekend – Friday through Sunday. Please pray for the 20 women from Westwood, who will be joined by about 220 Alliance women from across Florida as they gather to learn, worship and be encouraged together.

CHOICES WOMEN’S CLINIC The new location for Choices Women’s Clinic is 1851 W Colonial Dr. It is within 1 mile of Planned Parenthood, and within 3 miles of two other abortion clinics. The new building is over 5,800 square feet, which will allow for expanded medical space, counseling rooms, baby boutique, and additional services. There is the need for some remodeling and sprucing up in the new building. You received a handout as you came in today explaining some of the needs and opportunities to help. Please complete and tear off the bottom portion and place in the offering bucket, and we’ll contact you about a day when a team from Westwood can go together to help get the building ready to occupy. Also, please consider attending the annual Choices fundraising banquet on Thursday, October 20th, at 6:30 pm. We would love to fill a table with supporters from Westwood. Note on your communication card or notify the office if you would like to attend.

GOOD NEWS CLUB (GNC) Please pray for the core team of 12 who will be operating the GNC at Prairie Lake Elementary school starting in late October. And remember to pray diligently for the students who will attend, and perhaps hear the Gospel for the first time!

NEW COMMUNITY GROUP Meeting at 9 am, in Room 240, Pastor Tom Welch is facilitating the study, Gospel Centered Life. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join. This group will meet each Sunday morning for the next 9 weeks.

DIRECTORIES AVAILABLE See Amanda at the Information Desk to pick up your copy of the Pictorial Directory. They are available to anyone who would like to have one until they are gone.

A LITTLE HELP We are planning to steam clean the sanctuary carpet this week. We would appreciate your help if you can stay for just a few minutes to stack the chairs before we leave today. Thank you!

40 DAYS OF LOVE This is a movement we are encouraging everyone to be involved in for the 40 days between September 19th and October 29th. It is a focus on Praying, Caring and Sharing, with a very simple, easy-to-follow plan. Brochures are available on the back table. Ask God who are the 3-10 people He would have you pray for, care for and share with during these 40 days. Fill in their names and some ideas of ways you can demonstrate care for them. Then look for opportunities to share the Gospel with them. In partnering with other churches throughout the Orlando area, we have the opportunity to have a tremendous impact, and to truly be The Church in our community.
