Yesterday was a memorable day at Westlake UMC. In worship and at a celebratory lunch, we recognized the heroic acts of service of nine of our members that received the KVUE Austin 5 Who Care Award throughout the years: Gerard van de Werken, Octavia Smith, Mary Lou & Bob Batlan, Robert & Peggy Davis, Luke Arney, David Graham, and Ann Finch. We were all encouraged and inspired to continue this legacy of service and care as we reconnect with our calling to be and continually become a church that cares. We love our church, and we are proud of our church family! #achurchthatcares

As the school year begins, it's time for our Sunday School Kick-Off this weekend. Our kids will start an engaging new curriculum, participate in a special service project to benefit our unhoused neighbors, & have ice cream sundaes. Yes, you read that correctly! Plus, there are a number of opportunities for adults to grow together in faith and connect with one another in the different ages and stages of life. All of these amazing opportunities happen each Sunday between our two worship services from 10:10 - 11:05am. Check out a class or group this Sunday. westlake-umc.org/groups

The new school year begins soon, and we will do a Backpack Blessing in both worship services this Sunday, August 14. We invite you to bring your backpack, diaper bag, lunch box or any other bag you would like blessed for this school year. We look forward to seeing you at 9:00 or 11:15am.

We are excited to welcome NAMI - the National Alliance on Mental Illness - this Sunday, July 31 for a special presentation called, "In Our Own Voice."

This presentation is meant to change attitudes, assumptions and ideas about people living with mental health conditions. Join us from 10:10-11:05am in Wyatt Hall (Rooms 202-203). nami.org/ioov #mentalhealth

Summer Camp at Westlake UMC will be here soon, but there's still time to register. Kids, from age 4 - 5th grade, and staff will gather at the church campus from 9am-Noon on June 13-17. Our theme is, “All God’s Children”, and we’ll celebrate how each of us is uniquely created and beautiful in our own way while learning to appreciate our similarities and differences. It's an amazing growing opportunity that takes place in a really fun environment. Sign up, spread the word and invite your friends! https://westlake-umc.org/events/summer-camp
