THE STORY starts next week!

We are gearing up for The Story journey, which we will begin together next Sunday! You have one more week to purchase your books at the table in the lobby. There are books for adults, students, kids (8-12), children(5-7) and little ones (0-4). It is recommended that adults, students and kids each have their own book. The Story for Children and The Story for Little Ones are intended to be read to the younger ones, so one book per family is sufficient. Remember, adults and students have the option of purchasing the ebook of their version of The Story through or Get Ready!


All Westwood Small Groups will embark on The Story journey together for 31-weeks (September-November and January-May, with a break in December). It is our desire that all of us attend at least one small group during the week. In the lobby you will see a large calendar with leaders names on YELLOW post- it-notes. Pick a group/ time, put your name(s) and time on a PINK post-it-note, and stick it on the leader’s yellow note, or show your interest in starting a new group at a different time . Group lists will be compiled from the calendar. We are anticipating your enthusiastic participation!BASICS

The next BASICs class is scheduled for Sunday, September 14th (immediately following the service – lunch is included). If you are interested in becoming an official member of Westwood Church, or if you just want more information about why and how we do ministry, you are encouraged to attend the BASICs class. Indicate on your Communication Card or contact the office at 407.295.4381 or to let us know you are planning to attend.

WEBSITE, the official Westwood Church website, has a brand new look. If it’s been awhile since you visited, drop by and check it out. You’ll find some new information, the opportunity to give financially online, forms you can fill out to volunteer or if you have a specific need, and much more.


The Church office will be closed tomorrow, Monday, September 1st, to celebrate Labor Day. Please use the regular church phone line and leave a message on extension 13 for any emergencies. Pastor Dan or one of the CARE12twenty4 Team will return your call soon.

*Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. Malachi 3:10 (NIV)*
