Welcome to Westwood Church.
We’re glad you’re here. Would you take a moment to let us know you are here on the connect card. We also invite you to share prayer requests. If you would like to make Westwood your church home and receive weekly eNews and praise/prayer reports, let us know through the connect card or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Sunday, January 16, we will be taking communion as a church family. Please gather elements beforehand if possible! Crackers or bread, juice or wine will serve well as we remember, recall, and recommit to the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Serve North Jr High Teachers with us.
We are providing a meal on Thursday, January 20 for North Jr High teachers at their conferences and need your help! We need both food or hands-on help from 2-4:30pm. Visit here to let us know how you can help!
Want to get to know Westwood better and see your place in it? Whether you’ve been here for a week or twenty years, we believe our Discovery Classes will help you connect here!
During our Discover Class (January 16 @ 10:30am), we’ll share the story of our church, our values, our doctrinal essentials and our mission, along with the distinctive characteristics that make our church such a good fit for the many people who call the St. Cloud area their home.
Our Equip class (January 23 @ 10:30am) will help you better understand God’s plan for the local church, discover your spiritual gifts, and identify ways and maybe even places God has designed you for service. At the end, we also provide an opportunity for you to take the next steps towards becoming formal members of Westwood. Sign up here.
Re|Engage Marriage Ministry.
Re | Engage is a small-groups based ministry. Unlike traditional counseling or mentoring where couples meet with an individual or one other couple, we believe life (and marriage) transformation best occurs in the context of relationships with others. Please join us at our first meeting on January 24. You can attend the first two meetings for free. If you and your spouse decide you’d like to continue the study, there is a $50 cost per couple. Sign up here.
Better understand the Christian faith with the Perspectives class. Meets on Mondays at 6:30pm at Hope Covenant Church starting Jan 17. For more information, click here. Scholarships available by contacting email@example.com.
Honduras Missions Trip
We are bringing a team of high school students and adults down to Honduras on June 18-26 to partner with Point Honduras, one of our mission partners. We’ll be working with their after school programs, health clinics, churches, and doing some construction work as well. Fundraisers available. For more information, visit www.westwoostcloud.org/students. Deposit is due January 23.
Community Bible Study.
Get better connected at Westwood and dive deeper into God’s word through our Community Study this January! The Community Study will be happening after church for 4 weeks starting January 16 from 12-1:30pm. We’ll have lunch together and then jump into the study through small group discussion. Lunch will be provided and childcare is available for those who pre-register. This is a great opportunity to experience community and build relationships at Westwood. Register here.
