We're a busy bunch! Check back here for the latest goings-on at FaithWestwood. You'll find our events listed in order of date with ongoing opportunities listed near the bottom.
Each year, FaithWestwood selects a great kid to be our VBS Kid and we do something special to lift them up and support them and their family.
This year's VBS Kid is Henry
Henry is a little boy who's had a lot of complications in his life, but continues to be a joyful despite all the challenges he faces. Henry, his mom Katie, and his brother are much-loved members of the FaithWestwood family, and everyone looks forward to seeing them everywhere Henry can participate and light us up with his smile. You can learn more about Henry and his journey here.
A Silent Auction for Henry
This year, the kids at VBS - and some of our FaithGroups too -- will decorate several artificial evergreen trees throughout the week. Then, you'll be able to bid on the decorated trees in a silent auction starting on Family Night on Thursday, June 17, and continuing through One Stop Sunday at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 20. Proceeds from this auction will go to support Henry and his family.
If you don't want to bid in the auction for a tree, you can send a donation to a special fund we've set up for Henry. Just go to faithwestwood.com/about-us/give to see several ways to share, including online, text, and by mail. (For online and text giving, the giving code is HENRY.)

And these blankets are all FREE for anyone in the congregation to pick up and give to someone and share the love of God. Each blanket comes prepackaged in a gift bag with tissue and a note from FaithWestwood. Simply grab a blanket from the shelves in the foyer on Sunday morning, or stop by the west entrance during office hours, M-F 8:00 - 3:30
You can grab your free copy of The Upper Room devotional on Sunday morning in the foyer or during the week in the vestibule at the west entrance.
