BAPTISM  We are in the process of planning a baptismal service in the coming weeks. If you have never been baptized, and would like to take this important step in your faith journey, contact any member of our Staff for more information.

BASICS  If you have been attending Westwood Church for a while, and would like to know more about why and how we engage in ministry in West Orlando, you’ll want to consider taking the BASICs class. The date for the next BASICs class has been changed to Sunday, October 18th, immediately following the worship service. Lunch will be provided, and we will meet for about an hour in the Conference Room. There is about an hour’s worth of advance preparation for you to do before attending the class. Please note “BASICs” on your Communication Card, or contact the office if you would like to be included.

OUR TCK (Third Culture Kid)  As part of their effort to encourage Derek Kes, the kids in our Children’s Ministry classes are sending gifts for his 12th birthday this month. To help cover the cost of those gifts, the kids will be serving snacks and drinks in the lobby before service this morning, and asking for your financial support through donations to their cause. We hope you’ll stop by and encourage the children as they take part in this important ministry!

LIFE LINE SCREENING  Westwood is pleased to host a preventive health event. Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, will offer their affordable, non-invasive and painless health screenings on 11/16/2015. Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation (irregular heart beat) which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis. Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount). All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. In order to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129, please visit or call 888.653.6441.

Cost is $20/person. We will register this week; contact the office if you are interested in attending.
