Work Day – Thank you to those who came out to help on the workday on February 1. The basement is looking great!

Brother’s Keeper – The next monthly breakfast meeting will be on March 7 at the church building.  All men/boys of the congregation are invited to attend.  The men will discuss individual needs, congregational matters and have a devotional.  Please plan to join us at 9 a.m.!

Monthly Birthday Celebration (1st Sunday) – We will have our March birthday celebration after morning services on March 1. Thank you to the Brock family for hosting.  This will be followed by a devotional and no evening service.

Congregational Meal (3rd Sunday) – Plan to attend the next fellowship meal on February 16 which will be hosted by the Ash family. The theme will be Italian cuisine, and we will recognize our Bible class teachers. A cake will be provided in honor of our teachers. Sign up on the bulletin board in the foyer to indicate what foods you will be bringing. After the meal, we will have a short devotional.  The ladies and men will meet separately so that our Lads to Leaders students may share what they have been learning. There will be no evening service this day.  Please join us!

Sign up to help – See the bulletin board for details and the signup sheets to host a congregational meal as is only one date available (3rd Sunday in November of 2020).  Team up with your friends and family.  This is also a great opportunity for the Lads to Leaders students.  Thank you to those members who have already signed up to host one meal.

Communion Preparation – Thank you to those who have volunteered to prepare communion this year. A few more volunteers are still needed to prepare communion in 2020. If you would be willing to prepare communion for one month in 2020, please see the bulletin board in the foyer to select a month. Thank you. Your service is appreciated.

Members and youth are invited to join us for two activities.  The Lads to Leaders will be collecting items for snacks for the homeless of Akron.  We will also attend the Saturday, March 7 event to deliver the packs to the homeless. The following items are needed to be donated to create up to 250 snack packs: pop-top stew or soups, granola bars, beef jerky sticks, fruit cups, chips, and brown paper bags.  In addition, for March 1, fresh fruit such as apples is needed. We will put the snack packs together on Sunday, March 1 after the devotional services in the afternoon.  Anyone who would like to drive or help deliver the food and snacks must sign up individually to attend. Our plan is to go on Saturday, March 7.  Slots are still available.  You must dress for the weather. Children can also come with parents.  Email the following address to sign up to drive or ride to deliver snacks to the homeless of Akron:  volunteer4akronsnowangels@gmail.com.  We need you.  This is the year to get involved at West Side and in our community.  Please consider donating items or joining us to assemble or deliver the packs. 

Men’s Retreat – Thank you to all of the men who attended the recent retreat at Camp CHOF.  Our thanks are extended to the keynote speaker, Dr. Glenn Pennington, Associate Bible professor at Ohio Valley University.  It was a great time of learning and fellowship.  Save the date for next year’s retreat with Mike Johnson of the Richmond Kentucky church of Christ:  October 23-24, 2020!
