The Good News – July 2017

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 oth-
ers.

Blessings to you all, Pastor Tom
