Pastor’s Notes September 2017
Hope you are all being blessed by the continuing presence of our great God! Walking through the journey we call life is not easy, but God can give you the peace through the Holy Spirit that will enable you to survive. Psalm 23 is the best promise that David experienced and we can too. Reading the Psalms lets you know that you are not abandoned or alone while going through life’s trials.
We just completed our first ever collection of supplies for the following schools: North Elementary, Canyon View Middle School and Iron Springs Elementary. At Iron Springs, Lois Wright distributed the supplies to the 5th grade classes where they were received with great gratitude. Nichole Kerestz at Canyon View Middle School was excited about getting the glue sticks. North Elementary has received their supplies also from Julee Jensen. Thanks to all who donated supplies or funds for this outreach. We will probably need to conduct a mission of mercy later in the school year, stay tuned for more info.
On the 20th of August, we had a great time with Kim Scott, Pastor of “The Gathering” in Las Vegas. It was a great message on speaking the “Language of the Kingdom,” and Kim ended the service with a Holy Spirit empowered time of ministry. The video is up on the Westview App and the YouTube Channel for Westview as well as on Twitter and Facebook. If you missed the service, check it out and be blessed. Also want to especially thank the Faith for Life Worship Team for coming down from Beaver to provide live worship music. We love Kim, she is a great speaker and her group of ministering ladies are incredible!
The Food and Faith BBQ was a resounding success! Monday the 28th of August was the best gathering yet to welcome SUU students to area churches and the community. It was a real joy having so many spreading the Word through pens, cards and love. Also, many got to share the Good News with some that stopped by the table. Thanks to Denise, Lois Johnson, Lois Wright, Steve Wright, Brianna, Matt and Stephanie, Brenda, Kyra and others that helped. We passed out approximately 450 pens and cards! It was a great evening of fellowship and ministry! We made connections with the Campus Inter-Faith group that Andria is a key part of on campus. More Kingdom activities to follow!
I want to introduce Pastor Allen Causey and his wonderful wife Debbie to Westview. They have pastored churches in Nevada and in the Carolinas. They have relatives here in the area and are going to be building a home in the Park west area soon. Emma and I have enjoyed great fellowship with them and feel that they will be a great addition to the ministry team here at Westview. Take the time to introduce yourself to them if you have not already done so.
Special thanks to Todd West and the crew from Todd’s Trucks and Toys for repairing the damaged roof section on the west side of the building. Be sure to thank Todd for keeping us dry and the building safe.
We are currently in the process of putting together a new web site for Westview. The Assemblies of God had been hosting sites for churches and has now run out of server room to do so. We will be previewing the site for you as Brett Rodii gets it going. Many of you have been gathering current photos and I am thankful for the visual record of who we are and what we do to bless our community. The best way to handle them is to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send them to Brett.
May the Great God of all Creation, bless you abundantly through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit! Pastor Jerry
