Gratitude Rocks! That’s what we are celebrating during this year’s stewardship emphasis. Gratitude rocks us and inspires us to meet God’s infinite generosity with a generosity of our own expressed through a commitment that offers to God our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.more
The holidays are just around the corner. It is so easy to get caught up in the holiday party season and overlook activities that make the season more meaningful and deepen our relationships with God and our community. Christmas In October is the perfect opportunity to think about what you want to experience this holiday season. It also provides an opportunity to remember to be grateful for all that God has given to us and to be generous in that abundance.

You are invited to the Fall Festival – the 2020 Drive-Thru Edition on Sunday, October 31. You can sign up as a car/family for one of the eight spots in each 25-minute interval. Please arrive at the beginning of your time slot. You'll be guided through three stations: 1) an interactive game, 2) photo booth, 3) a visit with the balloon artist. You'll advance from one station to the next in your car, so be ready to get in and out of your vehicle. After your last station, you'll receive a take-home goodie bag. Please be advised that you will only have a few minutes at each station, which will make each station exciting and give space for all the people to enjoy the Drive-Thru Fall Festival. For the safety of all the participants and workers, masks are required for this event. Please sign up for the event here. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Fall Festival on Saturday, October 31.more

As we continue to live in unprecedented times and adapt to ever-changing “normals” it is more important than ever that we remain grounded in the One who creates, sustains and redeems.

Please register here so that you can receive the Zoom link in advance of our first prayer time.more
Westlake United Methodist Church has moved to “virtual” interaction and suspend all in-person church activities and meetings effective immediately. This includes all Sunday morning classes and worship services.
We have online worship services at 9:00 & 11:15am. It is super-easy to participate. Just click here. At 9:00 & 11:15am on each Sunday the livestream will begin. If you miss it, you can still click this link and, once the landing page loads, click on the archived service in the right-hand column to watch anytime. There will be two buttons on the top left-hand side of the screen. The top one will say, “Register Your Attendance” and the second will say, “Give Now” so that you can easily tell us who all is worshiping with us and submit your offering online.

Temperatures are trending downward in South Texas, albeit slowly, so the first week in October seems like a great time to return to our favorite working grounds in South Texas. The need for building wheel chair ramps is growing, but our case managers will decide on our top priorities, and decide on the best use of our time.
I'll head down the morning of Sept 30th and we'll return the afternoon of Oct 4th. I'll have coolers with cold water and Gatoraid, and lunch fixn's for a couple of days. I must admit that the sausage gravy and biscuits with fried eggs for breakfast were pretty good, so you just might just see a reprise of that one morning.
As always, come when you can and leave when you must. Hopefully we'll have a good turnout, because as I stated in my last report, many volunteer groups have faded away, so the need for us has grown. The fact that we've been doing this for over 2 years is a testament to our dedication and commitment. I thank you all for that.
Let me know if what days you can make it so we can prepare accordingly.
