BAPTISM AT THE BEACH - A baptismal service has been planned for Saturday, October 27th, beginning at 11 am. We have 10 students planning to be baptized that day. If you would like to add you name to the list of baptismal candidates, contact the office. Everyone is welcome to join us at Mary McLeod Bethune Beach Park, 6656 S Atlantic Ave (near New Smyrna). Some families are planning to stay for lunch and an afternoon of swimming after the service.

RED PRAYER GATHERING - Sunday, October 28th, at 4 pm, will be our next gathering to pray specifically for RED student ministry. Please join us as we bring before the Father the needs of our students and adult sponsors, and as we stand in the gap for them against spiritual battle. We will meet at Westwood, in the Student Lounge.

FESTIVAL BY THE LAKE - You are invited by First Alliance Church to participate in their free Fall event for the whole family. It will be held on the 1st Alliance property (3800 Lake Underhill Rd.) on Saturday, October 27th, 5-8 pm. There will be food trucks, carnival games, live music, hayride, bounce houses, face painting, pony rides and more.

FALL OUTREACH - October 31st - If you are available, please make plans to join us in the Reflections neighborhood in Ocoee for the Fall Outreach event. We would love to have your help manning the game booths or concession stand, and greeting. Parents, you are welcome to bring your children to participate in this family-friendly, safe trick-or-treating event. The parade starts at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, October 31st. Set-up will be going on most of the afternoon. Please let us know if you are available to help with that. There will be no children's or youth programs at Westwood that evening.

PRIZE ITEMS FOR FALL OUTREACH - We have ordered the items for Prize Bags to be given to each child at the end of the Fall Outreach event. We are still short about $150 of covering the cost. If you can, please donate, over and above your normal giving to help cover this expense, and mark your envelop “Fall Outreach.”
