WEAR A NAMETAG!—Have you ever had a conversation with someone where you just can’t remember their names? We’ve all had moments like this. So for the next few weeks, life is going to be easier at Westheights because we’ve got nametags for everybody! The nametags were placed on your chair. Do your neighbour a favour by writing write your name on it and putting it on, and making a new friend!
WESTHEIGHTS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM)—The Westheights AGM is next Sunday, March 25th at 6:00 pm. We welcome all attendees and members to this meeting to discuss the past year’s business and upcoming plans for 2018. The AGM Reports are available to be picked up by the mail files, or on our website.
GOOD FRIDAY COMMUNION SERVICE—Come to a special service of reflection and worship, at our Good Friday communion service on Friday, March 30 at 10:30 AM.
GOOD NEIGHBOURS DAY—Several times throughout the year, our Westheights Kids visit our neighbours, the residents at Forest Heights Long Term Care Centre, showing them love through gifts, music and service. In the Spring, we do something different as a whole church: on Saturday, April 14, from 10:00am to noon, we are going to show the love of God in practical ways including outdoor gardening work and indoor spa services. We need people of all ages to pitch in for a variety of tasks including outdoor gardening work, teaming up with the seniors to create small potted plants for them to keep, and pampering seniors with spa services including hand massages, manicures and facials. Sign up in the foyer today.
TODAY’S MESSAGE—Pastor Bill is away this weekend, so we have the privilege of having Doug Sider, Executive Director of the Be in Christ Church of Canada, speak to us, continuing with our current series on the Creed. He will be speaking on the topic of community. Before he comes up to speak, let’s watch this video.

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.”
