MSM Prayer Partners NEEDED!

Date: 07/17/2019
Time: 7:15 pm - 7:45 pm
Location: Westwood Church, 13056 Atwood Avenue, Omaha

Every year, a wonderful component of our mission trip is pairing up each participant with a prayer partner that will pray specifically for them, their experience and the growth that will take place in their walk with Jesus! This year, we’ll be traveling to the Minneapolis, MN area July 23-28th to serve the community there through various local ministries. Please consider being a prayer partner for one or more of the students and adult leaders that are participating this year. The list of students and adults you can sign up to pray for is below.

We will have a prayer gathering to meet the student or adult you sign up for on Wednesday, July 17th at 7:15 p.m. At that time, we ask that you bring a small gift bag with items that would bless your prayer partner on the bus ride or trip, (i.e. prayer journal, candy, gum, travel game, cards, stick sun block, notes of encouragement or any other fun items that would be an encouragement), meet with your prayer partner and also spend some time learning about the trip and receiving prayer requests! *If, for some reason you are unable to make the send-off, you may still sign up to serve as a prayer partner.*

Thanks for considering being a prayer partner for this life-changing trip. You can sign up using the link below, this Sunday in the Welcome Center, call the church office at 402-333-6120 or email kara@westwoodchurch.net.

Dear Westwood Middle School Ministry students & parents,

  • 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.

Soulcollage Afternoon

Date: 08/10/2019
Time: 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Location: Westwood Church, 13056 Atwood Ave, Omaha

You are invited to a Soulcollage afternoon.

Soulcollage is a wonderful way to listen to what your soul wants to say to you.  It is a multi-leveled, creative process…with no need to be “artsy”.  By using images in a safe, contemplative space we will use our imagination and intuition to create a card(s) to explore your soul.  We will begin and close the time with silence, work in silence and have a time for group sharing.  It is a profound process…one that helps you learn what your soul is saying.  It’s easy and fun!

Cost $15.00

Reserve a space by emailing Cathy Christiansen at cathy.c@cox.net
