Welcome to West Haven on this Lord’s Day! A high point in the weekly rhythm of a Christian is to gather with the saints for corporate worship. Corporate worship is designed to focus us on God’s greatness, goodness, love, grace and redemption through Jesus Christ. It’s a time to remember His teachings and sacrifice and to be reminded of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. I pray our worship gathering will give rest to your soul.

Today, we are excited to announce our upcoming Awana VerseAThon! The Awana VerseAThon will take place on Wednesday, March 1st, and will involve memorizing and reciting verses from the Bible. Awana Clubbers will have the opportunity to earn prizes and recognition for their efforts.

More importantly, the Awana VerseAThon gives a way for children to actively participate in the Great Commission! All proceeds from the event will go towards expanding the Awana Club program in Africa! This is such a neat way to show Awana Clubbers that even children can live on mission! Clubbers will experience a simple way how they can share the love and truth of Jesus with other children around the world.

I am also excited to announce that we will have a special Good Friday service this year. Good Friday falls on April 7th. The service will begin at 6:30pm and it will be less than one hour in length. This service will be very unique; very different from what we are accustomed to at West Haven. It will be a weighty service; it will remind us of the weight of sin and Jesus’ work on the cross. However, I pray that it will also heighten within our souls an anticipation for Easter when we will celebrate Jesus in the brilliant light of His resurrection!

If you are visiting with us today, thank you for joining us! This is a wonderful church who loves Jesus deeply and who desires to serve Him! I’d love to meet with you and tell you more about what God is doing through West Haven.
