We started our stewardship series today, which is entitled "first: putting GOD first in living & giving." Here is a resource that will help you further reflect upon the content and themes of the first week in our series. Check it out here. https://tinyurl.com/dhxm66rt

Children's Service Sunday is this Sunday, October 10th! This has been a very long year and a half for our healthcare workers, so this month we are going to treat these neighborhood heroes!! We'll gather on the church campus this Sunday, October 10th, from 4-5:30 pm, to fill treat bags with snacks and goodies to say "Thank You" for their caring hearts and long hours. Gifts will go just around the corner to Westlake Medical Center. Contact Kellie Brewer at kbrewer@westlake-umc.org with any questions.

You are invited to this year's Fall Festival on Sunday, October 17 from 4-6pm. There will be a petting zoo, inflatable obstacle course, balloon artist, festival games, prizes, popsicles, chili & cornbread. It's going to be a blast! RSVP and/or sign-up to volunteer at www.westlake-umc.org/fallfestival.

On the 4th Sunday of each month, our kiddos gather for a different outdoor adventure. Kids are invited to play some fun field games at the church campus this Sunday, September 26 from 4:00-5:30pm. Meet up in the Gym. Contact our Children's Ministries Coordinator, Kellie Brewer, with any questions: kbrewer@westlake-umc.org.

Reminding you that there is Service Project opportunity for our kiddos TODAY at the church campus from 4-5pm. We are partnering with Brookdale Senior Living here in Westlake Hills to provide special goodie bags for our teachers and staff at Eanes Elementary. Today, kids will custom decorate the bags to be delivered on Sept. 27. Of course, parents are welcome to stay and help. See you this afternoon!

UPDATE ALERT. Out of caution and concern for the health and safety of everyone (especially our unvaccinated kids), we have made a late update to Monday's Back to School Water Bash. We are formatting the event so that a more limited number of families can come during a specific 10-minute time slot to pick up BBQ, play party games (human ring toss, water relay, and a sack race), & play on the big, inflatable slip 'n slide. Space is limited, so please sign up on the Sign-Up Genius page: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a054aafae2da3fb6-back

Youth Summer Sundays Fun is back again this week! Middle School & High School students are invited to ring handbells and learn more about how to play them tomorrow afternoon in the worship center. Make plans to join us from 5:00-6:30pm in the Worship Center at the Church.

Do you like to organize? Well bring your gloves, your tarps, your smiles, your energy and your water bottle for our CHURCH-WIDE CLEAN-UP! We will empty closets throughout the church and decide what to keep, what to donate, and what to trash. It will be a BLAST and so helpful as we jump back into all things CHURCH! Join us on Saturday, August 14 from 9 AM-noon.

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.
