Volunteers Needed For Meals and Transportation

The monthly community meal has been serving our community for four years. In an effort to ensure longevity of this vital ministry, the deacons envision a group of volunteers who help only a few times a year  in order to aid the volunteers who come every month. Please consider signing up to help on an occasional basis. Sign up poster is in the Narthex. Or contact Lorraine Book at 724-944-6982. 

Transportation. With our aging population growing we have an increasing need for providing rides to doctor appointments. This is an easy way for us to serve the family of God. If you have daytime hours available to minister to someone in this way please call Ken Lytle at 724-667-8282 or Lorraine Book at 724-944-6982 Jfbook@verizon.net

Everyone’s Christmas Story – Christmas Dinner Theater – SOLD OUT

Saturday, December 16, 6:00 p.m.

Highland Meadows Farm,

551 McClain Road, Enon Valley

How do you tell an old story in a new way, especially when it’s the most important story of all?  That’s the problem facing a young writer who is trying to write the annual church Christmas play.  Bored by the same old manger and angels and shepherds, she tries to liven it by turning the humble and familiar characters into pop stars, superheroes, gangsters, and circus performers in her imagination.  She has loads of fun during this creative process, interacting with her jazzed-up versions of these characters.  Yet, as they play out the story in her bedroom, she starts to see things differently and comes to realize how amazing the Biblical account really is…  just the way it is, was, and always will be.  She realizes it’s truly everyone’s story.

Join us this holiday season for a comedic  tale of a writer struggling to recapture the meaning of the greatest story ever told. You’ll get a chance to interact with the traditional and beloved characters of the incredible account of Jesus’ birth as well as some unexpected guests. There are guaranteed to be a lot of laughs and a rekindling of your love for the miraculous event that changed the world.

Tickets
We are currently SOLD OUT! To be placed on our waiting list, please call the Westfield Church office at 724.667.7045.
