Good morning Westheights,
Last week we mentioned glee over the warm weather, and there was a school snow day for Waterloo Region! So we’re not going to say anything weather related this time… Here’s your announcements for the week!
Riddle of the Week
Our riddle this week came from Murray’s six year old grandson.
Why did the banana go to the doctor?
Reply back with your guesses, but for those who can wait, the answer will be in next week’s newsletter! While you’re thinking on the riddle, here’s some weekly announcements!
Young Adults: Project Give & Save the Dates
We hope you can join us this Sunday, April 3rd from 3-5pm for Project Give: Young Adults Edition. Your hands-on help is needed for those whose lives have been disrupted by war and disaster! Come knot quilts, assemble MCC Relief Kits, and reflect on the response of Christ-followers to war, conflict and oppression.
Save the Dates!
Sunday May 1, 2022 – 3pm-5pm
Sunday June 5, 2022 – 3pm-5pm
Good Friday and Easter
Mark your calendars, Good Friday and Easter is fast approaching! Our Good Friday service will be Friday, April 15 at 10:30am, and our Easter Service will be at our regular Sunday service time at 10:30am on April 17th.
Like all our services, you will be able to participate through Westheights@home through our Youtube channel if you’re unable to attend in person at Westheights@82.
Community Centre Collection Update
Thank you everyone for helping collect items for the Community Centre! All together we collected:
32 bottles of shampoo & conditioner (14 L)
92 Tooth brushes
90 tubes of toothpaste
Stay tuned for our next collection items!
Over the month of April, we will be having Nametag Sundays at Westheights@82. It’s a great opportunity to learn some new names (and refresh our memory on others) of people within our church community. We will provide the nametags and pens, you provide the names!

Last Week’s Riddle Answer
Grandpa went out for a walk and it started to rain. He didn’t bring an umbrella or a hat. His clothes got soaked, but not a hair on his head was wet. How is this possible? Because he was bald!
