Dear Westview Family and Friends,

The summer seems to have just started and the stores are already having back to school sales. I hope everyone is getting some good rest, fun, and relaxation this summer! Westview Church has been busy preparing for the Music Machine as our VBS next week. This extravaganza is being headed up by wonderful volunteers. More volunteers are always appreciated see Jill Turpin or Sarah Timmons if interested.

Financial Peace University is also coming up. It will begin August 6th. This class is for everyone that has ever had to deal with their finances. Learn to control of your finances so that your finances don’t control you.

Our Bible study is also starting that week on August 9th. The study, “What’s the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian?” is based on Martin Thielen’s book. It will meet twice a week. Once on Wednesday morning at First District Coffee at 9 am and again at the church that evening at 6:30 following the Wonderful Westview Wednesday meal and time of fellowship.

I ask each of you to commit to participating in as many church and fellowship events as possible. We are working on becoming Christ’s disciples so that we can share the love of God with our neighbors more fully and completely than ever before. One person may not make a difference in the life of the world but one person can make a world of difference in the life of a neighbor.

Along that same line I ask that you prayerfully consider serving on committees. It takes us all working together to make Westview UMC function properly. We are an active church and need all of our voices to unite in call, witness, and love to our community and our church. I ask that you consider leadership as a way to help develop discipleship not only in your own faith walk but in the walks of others.

Blessings to you all,
Pastor Tom
