Student Spring Break Trip

For Spring Break 2011 the Student Ministry of Westwood will partner with Oak Park Baptist Church, in Jeffersonville, IN, in efforts to reach the community with the love of Jesus Christ. We will do this through canvassing area neighborhoods, hosting community block parties, various community service projects, and other random acts of kindness. We will also have nightly worship and Bible study, one free day in downtown Louisville, KY, and tons of opportunities to hang out and connect with each other. Don't miss out, it's going to be a blast, so sign up and help us Advance The Kingdom of God!

Advance: The Kingdom trip will be March 12-18 and is open for all middle and high school students. The cost of the trip is $200/person (for all MS/HS students that have completed the Advance: Core Groups Program) or $250/person (for all MS/HS students that did not complete and/or did not participate in the Advance: Core Groups Program). Cost includes: transportation, lodging, food and free day (students will need extra $ for fast food on travel days, as well as any spending $.)

Guatemala Mission Trip

Guatemala Mission Trip
July 9-16, 2011
Interest Meeting October 24
11:30-12:30, Room 214

This summer we will have the privilege of serving in remote villages, surrounding Guatemala City where we will us a variety of methods (sports, crafts, school supplies, VBS, etc) to gather people around the Word, share the Gospel, give them a Bible in their language, and serve their needs. At the end of the week we will share with them the importance of Acts 2:42 which are New Testament instructions on what new believers are to devote themselves to in their new walk with Christ. Our locals on the ground will work with these new believers all year long to help disciple them as a new church.

Ministry Projects will be as follows:

Evangelism-everyone will be trained to present a simple presentation of the Gospel.
Orphanage-we will also plan on visiting a local orphanage where we will interact with and play with the children.
Humanitarian Aid-we will work with our ministry partner, Feed the Children, to help feed hundreds of starving kids in these impoverished villages and the city dump.
Villages-we will be serving in Palencia and Bejucailto.
