MSM Mission Trip

Date: 01/16/2019 - 07/28/2019
Time: All Day

Dear Westwood Middle School Ministry students & parents,

This year, we are going to be serving at RCA’s Power Connection Work Camp and then attending the Power Connection Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota. The dates for this year’s trip are: July 23rd – 28th, 2019.  

  • You MUST be registered online by February 3rd if you are planning on going, as we will not be able to guarantee spots for our large group unless we can submit our group registration then.  REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.  If you wish to be added to a wait list, contact Kara.
  • The cost per student is $360 which includes all transportation, housing, activities and food (both on site as well as in transit), as well as 2 t-shirts.
  • If you’re able to pay in full up front, that would be very helpful and you’re welcome to do so!  However, if a payment plan would help you and your family, this amount can be paid in a total of 3 installments:

Initial Deposit of $120 (due at time of registration – by February 3rd at the latest) Click HERE to pay initial deposit or full balance

2nd Payment of $120 (due by March 17th) Click HERE to make 2nd payment or pay remaining balance

3rd Payment of $120 (due by April 28th) Click HERE to make your final payment

  • By signing up and paying a deposit, you are agreeing to follow through with paying in full (as the church has to pay in full up-front to secure your student’s spot). All payments are non-refundable.  If you are paying in installments, please be sure to pay on or before each deadline.  If you are late to make a payment, a $10 late fee will be automatically tacked on to the payment that is late.

Inspiration Hills Summer Camp

Date: 01/31/2019 - 04/14/2019
Time: All Day

Hi Parents of Westwood Church 2nd-5th graders!

It’s time to get serious about summer camp.  If you are considering Inspiration Hills Camp for your child, it’s time for you to get them registered!

While there are many good camps out there, we believe that Inspiration Hills Camp in Inwood, IA is an excellent choice, and therefore help organize a parent carpool to and from that camp.  Brochures are available in the Welcome Center; otherwise check them out online at www.inspirationhills.org.

  • Westwood kids entering 3rd or 4th grade (fall of 2019) who would like a short first-time camp experience this summer will go July 1-3.   This is the Discovery Camp #1.
  • Kids entering  4th-6th grade (fall of 2019) who would like to attend the week-long Lodge or Wilderness Camp will go June 10-14.   Choose either Lodge Adventure #1 or Wilderness Pathfinders  #1.  You can read about the differences online.
  •  You must register online at www.inspirationhills.org.  The sooner the better, as camps do fill up.  When they’re full, you’re out of luck.  🙁  Prices also go up after April 15th.
  • Westwood Church provides $50 per camper.  Watch for the blank on the registration form that says “Amount Church is Paying” or “Church Contribution,” and fill in $50.
  • After you register, email me (michelleg@westwoodchurch.net) to let me know!!  I will then send in the $50 for your camper, and add you to an email list for carpool information.

Parents are responsible to get kids to and from camp.  We would love for your child to be a part of a church/parent carpool.  We meet together at the church, answer any questions the kids have, and pray together before we send off the parents and kids!   Plan ahead, figure out which way you are willing to drive (TO camp or HOME FROM camp) and let me know ASAP.

Need to make some money to reimburse yourself the cost of camp?  There will be an optional Butter Braid fundraiser (February 20 – March 13) to help cover your costs. Butter Braid letter to parents 2019

Westwood folks LOVE Butter Braid pastries and would love to buy them from you – just make yourself available!  You make $5 – 6  per Butter Braid sold.   Want to sell?  Pick up a form February 20th from the Welcome Center counter and start selling!  Forms and money are due March 13th.  Delivery date is March 27th at 5:45pm (at WNL).  You must pick up any Butter Braids sold at this time.  The money you make from the sale will be paid directly to you with a check from Westwood Church.

Let me know if you have ANY questions!
