RED SUMMER EVENT *Roller Skating* - Saturday, July 11th. We will meet at Westwood at 6:30 pm, and travel together to Semoran Skate (if you’re driving yourself, meet at the rink at 7:30). Parents can pick up their kids at Westwood at 11 pm. Students, if you haven’t signed up already, be sure to see Vanessa Johnson today.

*PRACTICALLY BEING THE CHURCH *Through the summer, we will continue collecting items to donate to the Bridges of America in Orlando. Please bring the following items and drop in the collection bin in the lobby: *razors & shave cream, *toothbrushes & toothpaste, *soap, shampoo, deodorant, **comb/hair brush, *toilet paper

One more thing: One of the items given to the guys at the Bridge is a new suit. We have been asked to collect neckties as a completer item. They can be gently used or new, and can be left in the donation basket along with the items listed above. Thank you for your consistency in being The Church for our brothers at the Bridge!

VBS – JULY 20-24, 9 AM – 12 NOON *VBS* is just around the corner. Mark your calendars and gear up for a fun trip. We are headed to Camp Kilimanjaro. If you haven’t already, register your child(ren) at westwoodchurch.com/Children/VBS 2015. Fill out and submit the form.

SOME WAYS YOU CAN HELP *(even if you aren’t available to be here for VBS) *If you took a card to purchase craft items for VBS, please be sure to bring them with you by next Sunday. If you didn’t get one last week, stop by the tables in the lobby, pick up a card(s), put your name and email on the list next to the corresponding number(s), and bring your items by next Sunday, July 12th.

Also, besides the purchased items, we’d love for you to help us collect the following from around your house: 100 10 ¾ oz soup cans empty & cleaned, 100 flat-topped 12-count egg cartons, lots of used, but clean bath and hand towels

Let’s eat lots of soup and eggs over the next couple of weeks, and go through our linen closets to clear out those unmatched towels. We’ll be collecting these items through Sunday, July 19th. The Children’s Ministry team is very grateful for your help and your generosity. Don’t forget to pray for our little ones that their hearts will be touched with the Gospel during their week at VBS.
