Are you ready for the Parade tomorrow? Because we are so excited to represent our church in the City of Westlake Hills 4th of July Parade tomorrow at 8:30am. You are invited to walk with us and our "float." Meet at 8:15am in the Independent Bank parking lot (101 Westlake Dr). After we walk the 1-mile parade loop, you can enjoy free food, drinks and entertainment provided by many local businesses in the area back in the Independent Bank parking lot. Remember, there is no 9:00am worship service in-person or online tomorrow, and there is no special Sunday School programming for kids or adults. But we will gather for worship both in-person and online at 11:15am. Whether we see you at the parade, at our worship service, or both, we are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow on July 4th!

Would you like a Summer of Kindness Yard Sign? Our Summer of Kindness has begun at Westlake UMC. Some of you are already playing Kindness Bingo by practicing intentional acts of kindness in your homes and in your neighborhood. If you'd like an easy way to check off one of the spots on your bingo card, or if you'd just like to help us promote this fun and thoughtful worship series, you could put one of our Summer of Kindness Yard Signs in your lawn. (By the way, the yard sign looks just like the image pictured here.) Please send an email to Curt Davis (cdavis@westlake-umc.org) by Thursday, June 10 at Noon and we'll make sure we have a yard sign ready for you on Sunday, June 13. If you miss the deadline, we'll have one ready for you on the next Sunday. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday at the 9:00 AM contemporary service or for traditional worship at 11:15 AM either in person or online.

Our ministry partner, Refugee Services of Texas, is hosting an event in honor of World Refugee Day on June 19th from 4:30-6:30pm. You’ll get to experience a native Filipino dinner prepared by chef Benz Adriano. Adriano and others will share about their journeys and experiences as a refugee, asylum seeker, or survivor of trafficking. Tickets are $25. Proceeds for the evening will help fund the cost of publishing a new cookbook with recipes and stories from a number of refugees, asylum seekers, and survivors of trafficking. Tickets can be purchased by scanning the QR code below or at the following site: https://rstx.eventgroovefundraising.com/platedstoriesdinner/Sale.

Good morning! It’s not too late to RSVP and join us for in-person worship in the sanctuary at 9:00 or 11:15am. Sign up at westlake-umc.org/events. We look forward to worshiping with you whether it’s in-person, online or both!

We had an incredible time worshiping together indoors and in-person on Sunday! We invite you to join us this Sunday, May 30, in the sanctuary at 9:00 or 11:15am. Find more info and sign up for either worship service on our website at westlake-umc.org/events.

Whether there's rain or sunshine, we will meet for in-person worship at 9:00am on Sunday. If the weather is good, we will meet as normal in the church parking lot. If the weather is bad, we have a back-up plan and will meet in the gym. We will keep doors open and people will be spaced out in seating pods. We are asking everyone to wear masks. If we do meet in the gym for worship, Children's Sunday School will happen in the gym as well immediately following 9:00am worship. If the weather is nice, outdoors. Whether we see you in-person at 9:00am, online at 9:00am or 11:15am, or both, we are excited to worship with you tomorrow! (westlake-umc.org/livestream)

We are so excited about bringing kids together for Vacation Bible School this summer! This year’s Vacation Bible School (VBS) will happen July 26-30th from 9:00a-noon each day. Registration is open. Cost is $40 for the first child and $20 for each subsequent child in your family. Scholarships are available. Fill out the registration PDF and pay in the link below. In planning with the pandemic in mind, we are limiting group sizes so registration is limited. We are carefully planning how to use the space available at the church and asking that all who can wear a mask while participating at VBS do so. This is going to be an incredible experience, so get your kids or grandkids signed up today! https://westlake-umc.org/ministries/children

Due to the rain and projected spotty weather, we are canceling our 9:00am in-person, outdoor worship service. And for that same reason, the outdoor, in-person Children's Sunday School will also be canceled. We are disappointed that we won't see you in person today, but we are excited to worship with you online at 9:00am or 11:15am! You can join us on our church Facebook page or at westlake-umc.org/livestream.

After talking about the spiritual practice of serving today we heard about Grayson Walker expanding GotNets? to Athens, GA where he attends the University of Georgia. Grayson launched GotNets? with the support of his family and his church (Westalke UMC). Check out the message from GotNets? below: “We are expanding! Had a great first Service Day in Athens, GA. The @universityofga chapter of @SigmaChi improved a dozen basketball courts, hanging over 20 nets and handing out balls to some happy, exercising kiddos! Big thanks to @wernerladderco and all of our donors!” Well done, Grayson and GotNets? !!!
