CHILDREN’S MINISTRY ANNUAL SUMMER SPLASH Immediately following service today, the Children’s Ministry team is a splash party to let our Children’s Ministry volunteers know how greatly appreciated you are! We’ll swim in the pool at the Reflections subdivision (next door to Pastor Dan’s house). Lunch will be served. The only thing you need to bring is yourself and your swimsuit. Come, join us for lots of good food and fun in the water and sun!
UNIQUE MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY Beginning this next week, Chinese students will arrive for their internship at EPCOT. Several families from Westwood are hosting students and/or providing transportation from the airport and to EPCOT on August 7th when their internship actually starts. There will be an instruction/informational meeting for all host families and transporters at Westwood tonight, beginning at 6:30 pm. If you cannot attend tonight, there is another opportunity at Mosaic Church tomorrow evening at 6:30 pm. Be sure to contact Agape Source (if you haven’t already) to let them know which meeting you will attend.
S.O.A.P.ING WEEKLY In order to prepare your spirit for the message each week, S.O.A.P. through a passage (read the Scripture, make your Observation, find a specific Application, and write a Prayer) in advance of Sunday service. Then come prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word. For the month of August, we will SOAP a chapter of Proverbs every day – 31 chapters, 31 days, 31 SOAPS. Remember to begin on Tuesday, August 1st with Proverbs 1. Then SOAP through a chapter a day for the rest of the month.
BACK-TO-SCHOOL MUNCH Sunday, August 20th, immediately following the worship service, is our Back-to-School MUNCH. See Myriam Manigat to RSVP for you and your family, and to select the side items you want to contribute. As we celebrate the end of summer, we will again have outside water games and activities, so kids (and maybe adults too), will want to bring your swim suits!
SCHOOL SUPPLIES COLLECTION As part of our collaboration with Prairie Lake Elementary School, we will collect school supplies to donate for the classrooms. We only have a couple of weeks before school starts, and now is the time to get some real bargains. On the board outside the office are cards listing the items teachers have requested. Take as many cards as you can, purchase the items, and make sure to return them by Sunday, August 13th. We will deliver everything to the school the next week.
DISTRICT WOMEN’S RETREAT
The District Women’s Retreat this year will be held in Daytona, October 13-15. Registration is $90, if you register by September 1st. There are flyers at the Information Desk. Find 1-3 people to share the room cost with. Let’s be well-represented this year!
MINISTRY ACTION TEAMS We are looking for MAT team members who would like to join Matt Kelly in keeping us focused on International Ministries, and those who would be willing to lead, or serve on, the Facilities MAT and the Stewardship MAT. Please contact the office if you think these ministry opportunities might be a fit for you.
