Announcements

NAME TAG SUNDAY—Have you ever had a conversation with somebody and realized you have forgotten their name? Or sat beside somebody at church for two years and never gotten to know their name? For the next few weeks, we invite you to pick up a pen from the chair in front of you and print your name on the name tag on your seat, and wear the tag proudly! Make a new friend today.

CONDOLENCES—We extend our condolences to Ryan and Amy Terpstra on the sudden passing away of Ryan’s father this past Friday.

WORSHIP NIGHT—Join us for a night of extended worship tonight at 6:30 pm. There is no child care, but kids are certainly welcome and encouraged to attend and participate. We hope to see you there as we celebrate the goodness of God!

WESTHEIGHTS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING—Everyone is invited to our AGM for Westheights Church, to be held next Sunday, March 31 at 6:00 pm. Pick up our AGM report by the mail files today, or you can read it online on our website.   

GOOD NEIGHBOURS DAY—As you may know, our Westheights kids periodically minister to the residents of our neighbours, the Forest Heights Long Term Care Centre. Now it’s our turn, as adults, to show God’s love to the residents. Our annual Good Neighbours Day is an opportunity for us to visit the residents, serve coffee and have conversation with them, and pamper them with spa treatments. We need a diverse team of people to help: people to porter the residents back and forth to their rooms; children to amuse the residents; people to serve coffee and converse; people to provide spa treatments; strong arms to help with supplies and clean water. Just sign up and we will find a job for you! There’s something for everyone. Sign up in the foyer to join us on Saturday, April 13th at 9:30 a.m. until noon. 

TODAY’S MESSAGE—In this season of Lent, Pastor Josh’s series is about The Surrendered Life. Jesus shows us what it means to remain focused on God’s mission…even when it isn’t popular and when those around us aren’t supportive.

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.

STAY IN TOUCHWe all use different platforms to stay in touch with our friends and family. At Westheights, we strive to keep you up-to-date using the following platforms: Westheights Weekly emails (emailsignup.westheights.org), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blog (connect.westheights.org), Sundays App (sundays.westheights.org), Feedburner (blog posts emailed to you every night at 7:00 pm), printed seasonal newsletters.

KIDS’ PICK-UP TIMES—Each week, our kids are safely in the care of our trained leaders. Did you know that, on a weekly basis, we have almost a 1:2 ratio, with one leader for every two kids? We are grateful for our amazing leaders and their passion to disciple our kids. Each week the leaders have an action-packed morning for our kids so they’d really appreciate every minute they can have with them. Please remember that our kids’ pick-up times are: 1) Infant-JK, after 11:30am; 2) SK-Grade 8, at 11:45am.

LOST & FOUND—Tis the season when our kids wear extra layers of clothes to church and somehow come home with a few missing layers. If you or your kids have lost something, please look in our Lost & Found bin at the bottom of the stairwell. If you have lost valuable items, like jewellery, please speak to Mimi, our Administrator.

HOUSE CHURCHES—House Churches provide the opportunity to cultivate deeper connections and friendships while supporting each other on our spiritual journeys.  Speak to Terry Kreutzkamp if you want to hear more about house churches.

PRE-AUTHORIZED DEBIT—Want to donate to Westheights in the same easy way that you pay bills and donate to other charities? If you are interested in being part of Westheights’ Pre-authorized Debit Program, contact the church treasurer by emailing treasurer@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.”
