House of Prayer @ Home Each Thursday
Prayer is one of our most powerful tools, and since we are unable to meet together in person to pray, we will be hosting a weekly time of prayer that you can attend from your home, each Thursday at 8:00PM. There will be a time of open prayer and encouragement for all via Zoom from 8:00 – 8:20PM, followed by a time for individual prayer appointments from 8:20 – 9:00PM. This is for anyone needing encouragement and prayer. You can sign up and have one of our prayer partners’ call and pray with you visit gowestwood.org/pray for more details. We would love for you to join us.

VBS 2020 Rocky Railway • June 15-18
Every year our church has an unbelievable Vacation Bible School during the summer. This year because of the Covid-19 situation, we will have to adjust our orginial plan for VBS. As you know, we are always blessed with huge numbers of kids who come from several communities. Our plan this summer is to do VBS June 15-18 but we will do it in backyards instead of at the church campus. In order to reach the hundreds of kids who normally attend plus all of their friends, we need your help. We would like to have several host homes in every major community around Alabaster and in other nearby cities. To get more information on how this will work please visit gowestwood.org/vbs.
