Memorial Poinsettias
The decorating committee will be placing memorial poinsettias in the sanctuary in celebration of the birth of our Savior.  If you wish to have a poinsettia placed in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special individual, please fill out a form located in the foyer and place it in the offering plate or give it to Maribeth Holcomb.  The cost is $9.00 and checks should be made payable to Westport Baptist Church and write poinsettias in the memo line.  More information is available on the form in the foyer.  We need your information by December 5.

 

Pack Away Hunger
Pack Away Hunger is February 15, 2020.  The deadline to order a special T-shirt for that day has been extended to December 15th.  Order forms are available in the foyer. There is also a sign-up sheet for those wanting to participate. Please contact Janetta Watts for more information.

 

Christmas Baskets
We are collecting canned goods and nonperishable items for our basket distribution at Christmas time.  Items may be left in the foyer.  Please check the expiration dates.

 

Breakfast with Santa:
The Golden Link Sunday School Class will be sponsoring its annual
Breakfast with Santa event on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 8:00-10:00 AM at the Outreach Center.  This will feature biscuits and gravy, fruit, pancakes, juice, and coffee!  Each child will receive a treat and have an opportunity to sit on Santa’s lap and get a picture! (Kids should be accompanied by an adult.)  Bring the whole family and enjoy this FREE event.  Invite your neighbors; this event is open to the public!

 

Bible Study
Wednesday evening Bible Study will resume in January.  The New Year’s Day session will be via FaceBook Live only.

 

Teacher Appreciation Dinner
South Decatur High School and South Decatur Elementary schools have been contacted and both have accepted our offer to provide the teachers a meal on the day they return from Christmas break on January 3.  It is time for the planning to begin!!!!  Last year we did soups, salads, rolls and desserts.  This year an idea was given to do Taco Bar and all the fixins.  If you would like to be a part of the planning.....please contact Pastor Paul to get involved in this ministry.

The church mission is to provide regular opportunities for public worship, sustain the ordinances, doctrines and ethics set forth in the New Testament, maintain a meaningful relationship with God and fellow believers and minister unselfishly to people in the community and world in Jesus’ name.


1 John 3:17-18, NIV If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
