Announcements

GOOD NEIGHBOURS DAY—Thanks to over 60 volunteers yesterday who showed God’s love to our neighbours at Forest Heights Long Term Care Centre, and the neighbourhood as we also did community clean-up.

WOMEN’S RETREAT—May 12-13. Women, join us for a 24-hour retreat at the beautiful Hidden Acres Retreat Centre, where we will relax, connect, and grow in our walks with God. This year, our focus will be on improving our brain health. Retreat brochures can be found in the foyer by the mail files; registration deadline is next Sunday, April 30.

SECRET SISTERS PROGRAM—Women, encourage and support one another in prayer and with personal notes through our Secret Sisters Program. Participate in a ministry where women are matched up with a secret sister, who will pray for and encourage her for a year. Forms can be picked up by the mail files, and must be returned by Sunday, May 14th.

WORSHIP NIGHT—Next Sunday, April 30 at 6:30 pm. Come take a time out with us. Let’s lay everything else aside for an evening and connect with our Maker. It’s in those sacred moments that we are renewed.

EXPLORE COMMUNITY—Why do we do things the way we do at Westheights? What is our vision for the future? Come and explore what it means to commit to being a part of our community here at Westheights. Explore Community is a 1.5 hour session, led by Todd, to learn about the value of community at Westheights. To sign up, fill out the form you received today and leave it with Todd.

EXPLORE BAPTISM—If you’ve ever had questions about baptism, or if you’re considering baptism in the near future, we invite you to meet with us for a time of teaching and discussion as together we explore baptism. If you want to learn more about baptism, fill out the form you received today and leave it with Todd.

TODAY’S MESSAGE—This week Todd begins a new series, Spiritual Wellness. The series will focus on three practices for spiritual and emotional wellness that we need to practice in our lives on a regular basis. Today, Todd begins with a message on the freedom that Jesus has given us but first, let’s watch this uplifting video that celebrates our freedom.

GREATER THINGS

Westheights has been working together to raise funds for our Greater Things campaign. The funds are for recent renovations that have offered a number of benefits to our ministries and for future improvements in accessibility for our facilities. For us to accomplish the Greater Things 20/20 vision the entire congregation of Westheights must rally together in spirit and action. We ask that you simply pray and, as God leads you, consider giving to the Greater Things campaign. For more information speak to Dave Wigg (campaign chairperson) or visit the Greater Things website.

John 14:12 (Jesus) “Those who believe will do even greater things.”
