Life Group Weekend
Posted: Jan 25, 2013 in Uncategorized | No Comments |

Hey everybody!

I hope that you and your family are doing well as we continue getting acclimated to a new year with new opportunities.  God has done so many amazing things already in 2013 and we are only 3 weeks in!  We are continuing to see new faces all the time and our attendance has been over 500 for 3 weeks in a row!
Please do whatever you can to make it to our Life Group Weekend at West taking place this Saturday and Sunday.  I will be sharing a message with you about the importance of community and you will have a chance to sign up for one of our life groups after.  We have more group options than we have ever had ranging from home group Bible studies to activity based life groups.  All groups are geared towards helping you meet others at West that can help you grow in your relationship with Jesus.  Don’t be alone in your journey with Christ!  Life is so much better when we live it together with others.
On Sunday, February 10th, we will be starting a Brand new class at West called Foundations.  This will be a 2 week class that will run every other month during our 930 service.  If you are new to West in the last few months, this class is a must.  We will answer questions, share vision and allow you to see and hear about the opportunities for you to get the most out of your relationship with Jesus.  You can sign up for this class on the back of your connection card this weekend!
Next weekend, we will be starting a brand new series called, “Life, Money and Hope.”  To kick this series off, we have a very special guest that will be joining us via video that weekend.  You absolutely do not want to miss out on this.  During this 3 week series, we will be talking about finances in a way that will blow your mind!  Money truly is a powerful thing that can be used for incredible things.  Our focus during this series is to give you some tips to help you become more financially healthy and secure so that you can be freed up to do things with your resources that will make a difference for eternity.  This will be practical, insightful, and even funny!  We hope to see you there.
Even thought this is still a few months away, mark your calendars for March 23-24 which will be our “All Things New” baptism weekend at West.  We are hoping to baptize 50 people this weekend!  If you have never been baptized in water, this is your opportunity.  Baptism is a public way to tell others that you are different as a result of your commitment to Christ.  If you’ve been trying to find a creative way to get your friends or coworkers to church, invite them to come the weekend you get baptized.  It’s a great invitation tool!
Our 2012 giving statements will be put in the mail on Monday.  You should be receiving them by midweek next week.  Thank you for all you did to help us spread the message of the gospel in Cape Coral and around the world this past year.  Because of you, not only were we able to move into a new facility, we were able to see over 100 people give their lives to Christ!  That really is what it’s all about.
I couldn’t be more proud to have the privilege of being your pastor.  I am absolutely pumped about the opportunities that exist for us in 2013.
With Expectancy!
Pastor Corey
