Celebrate the Tithe  |   Dec 3
December 3 will be a Sunday to celebrate the gift of giving to our Lord. We would like to challenge everyone to tithe a tenth of your paycheck this Sunday & see what God can do. The Lord tells us in Malachi 3:10, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” Join the staff and many others as we celebrate what God has done & will continue to do through our faithfulness.

Attention Amazon Users
Did you know that you can easily, and at no cost to you, donate .5% of your Amazon purchases to Westwood Baptist Church or any charity you choose?  All that is needed is to log on to Smile.Amazon.com rather than Amazon.com.  You can log on with your same username and password and near the top you will see an option to select a charity. Simply use Smile.Amazon for your purchases and .5% will automatically be designated to that charity every quarter and you can track that as well. Please consider doing so and selecting Westwood. We always have many wonderful opportunities to put such funds to good use.
