Communion Service & Benevolence Offering
Sunday, we will close our services with the observance of the Lord’s Supper. Please prepare your hearts in advance to participate in this sacred time in a worthy manner. We will also collect a special benevolence offering directed towards assisting those in our fellowship who are struggling with significant financial needs. This is a unique opportunity for us to express our unity and loving care for one another as members of God’s family.
Mark your calendars! Missions Conference is February 23 – March 1. There will be many opportunities for us to hear from our guest missionaries about how God is working throughout the world! For more information about conference events and registrations, as well as ways to get involved, go to https://www.westparkbaptist.org/missionsconference.
