2015 YEAR-END GIVING STATEMENTS 2015 Giving statements are available on the back table. Please pick up yours today to save the expense of postage. This is the last day that you can pick them up.

FEBRUARY: INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES MONTH February is International Ministries Month. We will have messages from the C&MA and our Other Missions groups/people. Come prepared to be blessed by news of the work!

KID’S PACKS The kid’s packs help to reinforce the message from Sunday school and Church. Take them home to complete and discuss the things your children are learning in Sunday school as well as during worship service. Asking your children questions about their understanding of what is being taught is a great way to help them solidify key biblical concepts in their minds and hearts! Please remind them to not use anything but chalk on the black clipboards.

SUGGESTIONS FOR SOAPING THIS WEEK*If you are not following a particular Bible reading program why not * SOAP this week’s text: *Psalm 139 and 110, and/ or prepare for next week: Psalm 33 and 148.

SOUPER SUNDAY The children of Westwood will be collecting canned goods (soups and non-perishable canned food items) on Super Bowl Sunday *– February 7th*, to benefit Clarcona Elementary School. Our kids are challenging us to bring one can of soup (or other canned meal) per person. That means each individual in every family going to the grocery store and picking out an item to donate for the food bank at Clarcona. This will benefit kids who otherwise often may go without supper. Let’s be generous as we determine to be The Church for these kids and their families!

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION Please help the Children’s Ministry as they collect Box Tops for Education for Clarcona Elementary School. Find them on General Mills products, cut them out and bring them in to the church lobby. We will get them to the school to raise funds for many educational needs.
