Our theme was "Celebrate the Ministries of Westwood". On "Celebration Sunday" nearly 50 members at each service processed into the sanctuary carrying banners, signs or placards signifying the many different ministries at Westwood Lutheran Church. It made quite a colorful display along the altar rail. It reminded us of how our time, talent and money reach out to others as we join together to do God's work. During the service members had an opportunity to turn in their pledge card that had been mailed to them earlier.
Several weeks prior to "Celebration Sunday" we scheduled a couple of work sessions where art supplies and poster materials were available. People that participated enjoyed the project. They were very creative!!
We want to keep the stewardship message going all year long, not just on a few Sundays around our fall stewardship appeal. A couple ideas we have discussed include a regular column in our church newsletter and stewardship links on our web page
