Announcements

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS—Did you know that we have a slo-pitch team that has been playing in the KW Mennonite Slo-Pitch League for several decades now? There have been 16 people who have contributed to the team this season. We congratulate our Westheights team for winning the B League Championship last Wednesday.

PASTOR BILL’S LAST PREACHING SUNDAY—We are grateful to have had Pastor Bill’s guidance as interim pastor over the past year and will bid him a fond farewell on Thanksgiving weekend – Sunday, October 7, when he will be giving his last teaching message at Westheights. Plan to come and show your appreciation as we set aside part of the service to express our thanks to Bill and Wanda.

WELCOME TO THE MUTTERS—On Sunday, October 14th, we will be welcoming the Mutter family at a special service led by Charlie Mashinter (Team Leader of Community Churches, Be In Christ Church of Canada). We are so excited to be welcoming Pastor Josh Mutter as our new Lead Pastor! There will be light refreshments and snacks after the service for extended social time with the Mutter family.

TODAY’S MESSAGE—Pastor Bill is away this weekend but we have special guest speaker Terry Wiens with us today, who will continue with the message series, Adventures in Faith. As many of you may know, Terry has been attending Westheights Church for 18 years. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious studies. Terry works in the financial sector, enjoys technology and continues to study theology in his spare time. He has been married to his wife Jenn for 20 years and together they have three great kids: Katie, Emylea and Griffin.

SERMON NOTES APP —For those of you who aren’t already using it, we’d like to introduce you to our Sunday app, a digital platform for everything that happens on Sundays including sermon notes, announcements, order of service, and online giving. The sermon note app was created specifically for Westheights. If you haven’t tried the app, check it out at sundays.westheights.org.

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 Davd Wigg (campaign chairperson).

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