Last Food Pantry Collection for 2006
The fourth quarterly Food Pantry Bag Sunday is coming up on November 19. The Deacons will dis- tribute grocery sacks on November 5 and 12. There are many families in our community who desperately need help in putting food on the table each day. This is our chance to do our part in filling this need. With cold weather setting in, it is especially important to provide good nourishing food.
Please take a bag(s) and stuff it with non-perish- ables. A list of suggested items will be attached to each bag to help you with your purchases. Be sure to note on the outside of the bag the number of items included. Monetary gifts are always welcome. Just make your check payable to Westkirk and mark it For Food Pantry.

October 29 a Day of Celebration
Reformation Sunday is always a great family day at Westkirk. Our thanks to all who helped prepare our special worship service and the beautiful music. And, thank you to all those who volunteered to set tables, cook, serve, and help out on the clean-up crew. The fellowship at such events truly enriches the lives of our church family.
Sunday Evening Service to Begin
On Sunday evening, November 12, Westkirk Pres- byterian Church will be hosting the first of a planned six Sunday evening, once a month, non-traditional worship services called, “Sunday Night at the Kirk.” Having a distinctly Westkirk flavor, these worship services will incorporate traditional wor- ship elements and clearly Reformed themes, with a more contemporary music background, in order to enable Westkirk to reach out in a fresh way to our neighborhood and community with the claims of Jesus Christ.
Plan to make the second Sunday evening of the month a night of worship at Westkirk. Pray about who you know who may want to attend. Do your children or grandchildren worship with you at Westkirk? If not, in- vite them to SN@K! Are you a family with older children or youth? Provide an opportunity for them to attend and invite their friends! Nursery and childcare (through 4th grade) will be provided. Having difficulty get- ting up on Sunday mornings or getting off work? Here’s the answer! Join Pastor Michael and the Elders of the Session on November 12 as we kick off SN@K exploring the great rally- ing cries of the Reformation in our new, Sunday Night at the Kirk sermon series, ‘The Five Solas of
