Foundations of Hope

We have entered the fulfillment stage of our Foundations of Hope campaign and have had questions about how to make out checks.  A separate interest bearing account has been established for Foundations of Hope.  All donations will go into that account. Please make out your checks to Westfield Presbyterian Church and put in the memo line Foundations of Hope.  Feel free to put them in the offering plate on Sunday morning or send them to the church office.  If you would like to make a gift of stock please contact Ted Feitt at Huntington Bank and he will guide you through the process and help you obtain the forms you need to make the transaction.

Foundations of Hope envelopes are being printed and they should be available soon. We continue to work on building design and when the final design is complete it will be presented to the congregation for your approval.  Thank you for your generosity, and your vision for ministry.

Project HOPE food bank

Items for the project HOPE Food Bank in January are cake mixes, frosting, pudding, and Jell-o. Please leave your items in the labeled bins in the coat rack area. Monetary donations are also welcome. Please make checks payable to Westfield with “HOPE Food” on the memo line.

Community Meal Plate

Community Meal Volunteers Needed

Thank you to all of our Westfield members who have been faithfully helping the deacons with the community meal. We would love to have more people sign up so volunteers don’t have to help every month. Please check out the sign up board in the narthex or below, to help us occasionally. This is a great opportunity to minister to the tired, lonely and sick.

Please leave your name and email below to sign up to be a volunteer:
