Westwood Outdoors Today!

Join us Sunday, September 25 at 10:30 at Lake George for our annual outdoor service. We’ll have lunch together to follow. Invite friends and neighbors, and bring a blanket or lawn chair! We will also have two food trucks available for ice cream and coffee. Bring a few dollars or a credit card to purchase!

Parenting on Purpose

Parenting is difficult. Come and learn from two fathers who have been there, done that – and have wisdom to share! We will begin at 8:30am on Saturday, October 22, hearing from Jeffery Olrick on the topic of “Empowering Parents and Children through the Science of Connection.” We’ll then break around 11:30am for lunch on your own (bring a friend, your spouse, or a group of friends and make a day of it!) and return at 2:30pm for a session with Jonathan Pitts who will teach on grace-based parenting and hard-earned wisdom from the loss of his wife while parenting four young daughters.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to be equipped in your parenting. Cost is $25 before October 18, then price jumps to $35. Register here.

Newcomer Reception.

New to Westwood? Join us on the third Sunday of each month starting October 16 to join pastors, staff, and overseers for a reception in the barn with some yummy pastries and the opportunity to hear more about how to connect here at Westwood.

Connect with God and connect with each other at Koronis Camp in Paynesville. We’ve been busy planning two nights away and five meals complete with opportunities for biking and hiking, snacks, crafting, a pontoon ride, games, prayer, and more for $140.
