January 12th

One of our values is to Recognize our dependence on God through prayer (Psalm 116.1-2, Proverbs 3.5-6).
To live by our values, we are going to focus on a spiritual growth campaign called 40 Days of Prayer. We will launch the full program on 2/4, but 1/21 & 28 we will introduce this program. If you know someone who has always wanted to learn to pray, this would be a great time to invite them to church!
I found this article about the things that will set churches apart in 2018. I hope you find this interesting and helpful. As we are all learning how to be missionaries to our community good info helps.
Please consider signing up to serve our church on Sunday's.
We need people to volunteer in three specific areas:
1. Extended session
2. Greeters
3. Opening/Closing the church.
These are great ways to serve consistently through the year.
Email Mirna at office@westernhills.life to get the process rolling.
For those of you who are interested in church security, here is a primer article. This is something that is important to think about.
Our funny video is appropriate for the cold spell Thursday and Friday. (Stay Warm!)
Married People monthly newsletter. Good reading for a cold day.
Our church is in a great position to serve our community for years to come!
Onward, and I can't wait to see you on Sunday.

January 5, 2018

It's 2018! What does God have in store for us?
I know one thing, we are going to live out our Biblical values together, starting with depending on God in prayer. On 1/21 we are going to begin a spiritual growth campaign 40 Days of Prayer. The Bible Studies will begin on 2/4, you are not going to want to miss this. If you have ever wondered how to pray, why to pray, when to pray or what to pray, this series is for you. I know it is going to change lives!
Here is a great article about how God used one person in a big way.
How might God want to use you in 2018?
One great tool I am using this year is the ReadScripture app. The neat thing about this Bible reading plan is that it has a short video each day that gives out the big picture of what is going to be read. I highly recommend!
If you are interested in learning more about Celebrate Recovery or serving in this ministry, please contact Gina at ginar@westernhills.life.
I am praying the purposes found in the Great Commission and Great Commandment over our church this year, that we all discover and live out God's wonderful plan for our lives. Here they are if you would like to join me in prayer:
We were each created by God to...
  • Know God personally.
  • Participate in God's family.
  • Grow spiritually.
  • Serve God's church.
  • & Share God's love with others.
p.s. the lights are back on in the sanctuary (you had to be there).
