HALLOWEEN FOR HUNGER RESULTS—Thanks to our awesome volunteers, we raised 2,932 lbs of food and $87 in funds, for a total of 2,552 meals that will help feed our hungry neighbours. Over the past 13 years, we have collected 31,000 pounds of food – the equivalent of five blue whale tongues! Way to go, Team Westheights! What a great way to demonstrate care for our neighbours.
PROJECT GIVE—Speaking of caring for our neighbours, coming up in just one month will be our next opportunity to provide practical help to people, both locally and globally. First, we are asking you to help us collect hygiene kit supplies, given through schools or orphanages to encourage healthy habits for children whose families have fled their homes because of disaster or war. We are aiming to collect enough health supplies for 150 kits so we need your help! Helping is as easy as 1-2-3. One, rip off a supply slip from the posters in the Westheights foyer. Two, buy your supplies. Three, show up on Sunday, December 8th with your supplies. After the morning message, we will assemble the hygiene kits to deliver to MCC.
GAMES NIGHT FOR GROWN UPS—Due to the success of our last games night, we are having another games night on Saturday, November 16th at 7:00pm.
TODAY’S MESSAGE—Pastor Josh Mutter’s message today is entitled “Welcome to the Kingdom.” The Kingdom of Heaven is something that Jesus talks a lot about and is something he invites us to join him in. Today’s message is about growing our understanding of what the Kingdom is all about.
OUR WELCOME CENTRE—Our Welcome Centre is our hub for information about Westheights Community Church. If you are new, you will find info about who we are and some of our programs.

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 TOUCH—We 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—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 email@example.com.
