BACK-TO-SCHOOL HELP FOR FOSTER KIDS

For foster children, heading to a new school produces great anxiety: Will I fit in if I don’t have the right stuff? We can make a difference. Starting July 22 through August 12, we will collect new school supplies — backpacks, binders, pens, pencils and more – that will enable them to go to school with confidence. We’ll give you exact descriptions so you can look for the sales! Contact Dee West west-d@comcast.net.

Note: Go to our website (wspc.org) to see the letter DSHS wrote to us for the other items West Side has already provided!

SUMMER BUILDING SCHEDULE

Since fewer activities happen in the evenings on church premises during the summer, we are closing the church building at 5:30pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings (except Evening Worship days) during July and August. The church will also be closed on July 4, July 7, and August 4. Whenever possible, please try to schedule evening meetings on Wednesdays during those two months. If exceptions are needed, please contact the church office. Thank you for your consideration as we try to conserve the church resources.
