We want to share an important opportunity with you from our friends at NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). We invite you to register for "Managing Back-to-School Anxiety" on August 13 at 7pm (tomorrow night) at the following link. https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/3715965727158/WN_pYOiuKPATseQnWhJa8s3Vg. Here's NAMI's description of the event: While back-to-school time is usually an exciting and busy time, students, parents, and teachers face new worries as the disruptions and uncertainties caused by COVID-19 continue. Worried parents can inadvertently make children and teens feel more anxious too. Join Meagan Butler and Wanda Montemayor, two former AISD Counselors of the year, for this interactive session incorporating neuroscience-based regulation skills and brain aligned strategies. They will share techniques for parents on how to manage their back-to-school anxiety, help children cope with changes to routine, and address their children's fears about going back to school. Mind Matters at Home, presented by Ascension Seton, brings mental health experts and advocates straight into your home to share valuable information and tools for deepening our community’s understanding and managing of mental health during the challenging situation caused by the coronavirus.

It's Week 1 of our God at the Movies series where we explore spiritual truths in contemporary films. Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust is the theme of this year's series because we're interacting with Disney movies. And today's movie is the The Lion King (original). Looking forward to seeing you online for the start of God at the Movies at 11:15am.

We have extended the time for you to participate in this week's special challenge for week 1 of our God at the Movies series. Because our first movie is The Lion King, the challenge is to create the creepiest “Bug Buffet Snack” utilizing the recipe sheet you see below. (Think like Pumbaa and Timon.) Post a picture of your creation here in this post by 3pm today. The winner of the challenge will be notified by 5pm. Bon appetit!

Our God at the Movies series begins this week. This is where we explore spiritual truths in contemporary films by watching movies and creating sermons and worship services that show how each movie’s themes intersect with the good news of the gospel. All four films are part of the Disney universe, which is why this year’s theme is “Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust.” The first movie in the series is the original, animated version of The Lion King. We are inviting you to make time to watch the movie before Sunday. You can rent it on several digital platforms or it’s free if you already have a Disney+ subscription. While you’re watching, we invite you to share some of your movie-watching highlights on social media (ex. What snacks are you eating? Who dressed in character? Who laughed the most? Who cried? What was the most quotable line? Who sang the loudest?). In fact, tag Westlake UMC in your posts and use the hashtags #movienight, #godatthemovies, and #westlakeumc. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you could do a watch party with another person or family on Disney+ or even have a socially-distanced backyard movie night with a person or family from your neighborhood. To make each week’s movie-watching experience even more fun we have an activity pack available here. And we also have a weekly challenge to create some friendly competition and tap into your creativity. The first week’s challenge is set up as an event here on our church Facebook page on the Events tab. One last thing. This is too much fun not to share with others. Would you consider sharing this series with a friend or loved one here on Facebook or as an email (by clicking on the link below)? We look forward to seeing you online this week and on Sunday. https://myemail.constantcontact.com/God-at-the-Movies-2020.html?soid=1113192074281&aid=gvkKOwHML74
