COMMUNITY APPRECIATION CELEBRATION JUNE 24
WHCC has been wonderfully overwhelmed with the community’s response to the break in that took place on Monday May 29th. To thank the community for all the love and support we have been shown we will host a community BBQ and concert on June 24 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. A short Thank You concert and program will run from 5:00-5:45 PM, and the BBQ will follow from 5:45 to 7:00 PM.

WHCC’s Worship Team will meet today after church from 12:00 – 12:45 PM in Smith Lounge. Participation is open to all those active participants in the community who have a passion for worship. The team meets the last Sunday of each month from 12:00-12:45 PM in Smith Lounge. Questions? See Pastor Craig.
BIBLE STUDY RESUMES THIS MONDAY
The Bible Study on the book of Acts will resume Monday, June 26 at 7:00 PM in the Breese Chapel. We will be studying Acts 6:1-7. The title of the session is “Conflict in the Church”. Questions? See Pastor Craig.
TUESDAY MORNING WORSHIP TAKES THE SUMMER OFF
The weekly Tuesday Morning Worship service will take the summer off. Plans are for the alternative worship experience to resume on Tuesday, September 12 at 9:00 AM. Questions? See Pastor Craig.
CHECK OUT FORM FOR KEYS
The new members of the Leadership Team are working to get a better handle on which members of the church have keys, and to which doors they have keys to. In order to track that, they have created a key check out form. The forms are available in the Narthex on Sunday mornings or in the church office Mondays through Friday from 9:00 AM from 1:00 PM. Questions? See new Moderator Betsy Zentner.
PENNY SCOTT IS HERE!
Sarah and Brian Scott welcomed their second daughter, Penny, into this world on Thursday, June 15. Penny arrived at 4:54 am, 8lbs., 2oz, 22 inches long. Both mother and baby are doing well. Brian is on Paternity leave for the first 3 weeks. A meal train has been set up so we can help Brian through a very busy time. Here is the link: https://mealtrain.com/qv5dv1
WEST VALLEY FOOD PANTRY UPDATE
The Pantry provides diapers to our clients when they are donated. We repackage a large quantity into packets of six or eight diapers. The most requested size is 4 (guess the tots stay in that size for longer). As always, your donations are greatly appreciated.
SPECIAL CONVERSATION THAT MATTERS JULY 16
There will be a special guest speaker at Conversations that Matter on July 16. Pablo Guerra from APECA Peru will be with us to talk about APECA’s new water projects. It would be tremendously helpful if someone in the congregation who knows Spanish would be available to help Pablo with some matters of translation. Pablo will arrive in Woodland Hills on June 21 and be here until July 23. Those interested in speaking individually with Pablo can do so during this time. Questions? See Gina Low (818-642-9032).
WATERS OF THE WORLD AUGUST 27
Each year, WHCC invites our friends and members to collect water from their summer adventures and bring the sample of water to our Sunday Service on August 27th. The water will be collected in a basin and used for baptisms during the upcoming year. It is a wonderful way to show how baptism is an expression of an entire community. Everyone is welcome to participate in this WHCC tradition!
PROPOSALS NOW DUE 6 WEEKS BEFORE THE EVENT
In 2016, WHCC adopted a new model for getting things done. Instead of relying upon a committee to do the work, our new Project Proposal system asks individuals who have an idea to turn in a one page proposal that spells out how the project will unfold. While many of the proposals have enjoyed much success this year, the Leadership Team noted that the chance for success would be even greater if church participants had more time to hear about upcoming events. With this in mind, the Leadership Team now asks that all Project Proposals be turned in a minimum of 6 weeks before the planned event. This will allow the event to be listed in several places including the new church newsletter, the weekly bulletin, and the church website. The Leadership Team thanks you in advance for your help with this.
