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

 

 

Happy Birthday, Jesus! – Sunday, December 17

Happy Birthday, Jesus!

It’s An All-Church Party for the King of Kings!!

Join us during the Sunday School hour (9:45 – 10:45 a.m.) on Sunday, December 17.  Children and adults are invited and encouraged to join in the festivities. We will use this hour to be reminded why we celebrate Christmas as we “assemble” a manger – reading various Bible verses and learning the Nativity Story. Cake and refreshments will be served.

PNC Update

The PNC is working diligently to find Westfield’s next called pastor. We thank you for your continuing prayers, not only for us, but for our next pastor, whomever God may be calling.

Cookies for a Cause

The Touched by Nathan Foundation in the Greater Mahoning Valley supports families with babies born with fragile conditions. Formed in memory of Nathan Pavalko by his parents in 1999,  it offers education, help, and comfort to inspire hope in an understanding and compassionate way. On Saturday, November 25, from 9-12 Westfield will bake cookies to support the foundation (light lunch provided).  50-60 dozen cookies are needed. Bake with us and/or donate ingredients for the cookies. A “post it” board is displayed with ingredients you can buy and bring in by November 19.
