PRESENTATION ON HEALTH CARE PLANNING AND

The Care Team will be hosting a presentation given by Dr. Alina C Lopo, MD, PhD, Fellow of American College of Physicians. The presentation will be held from 11:30 -12:30 in the sanctuary.
Dr. Lopo is currently the Medical Director of Skirball Hospice, Center for Palliative Services and Jewish Home Care Services, programs of the Los Angeles Jewish Home for the Aging. She has many years in both private practice and in hospital medical staff leadership. Her more recent experience has been focused on senior patients and end-of-life planning and care. One of her passions is education of the community at large.this will be an overview of how to plan for and communicate to your loved ones your healthcare wishes in the event you cannot make them for yourself. Dr. Lopo is an entertaining as well as experienced speaker and we look forward to welcoming her to WHCC.

” LETTING GO OF BEING A VICTIM ” MARCH 24
It is easy to fall into certain roles in relationships. One of those roles is playing the part of victim. That is an unhealthy role to play. Melody Beatty – in her book of devotionals titled The Language of Letting Go – warns us about doing this. “We do not need to be helpless and out of control to get the attention and love we desire,” she writes. “We can get the love we really want and need by only owning our power.” If you would like to explore the process of leaving the role of victim behind, join us at the Creating Healthy Relationships group this Sunday, March 24, from 6:00-7:00 PM in Smith Lounge.
LECTIONARY BIBLE STUDY MARCH 25
The Monday night lectionary Bible Study will be looking at the four assigned readings for the March 24 service (Third Sunday of Lent): Joshua 5:9-12; Psalm 32; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; and Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32. Individuals are encouraged to bring their favorite translation of the Bible with them to give us more insight into the passages. The Bible Study meets from 6:45-7:45 PM each Monday evening in the Breese Chapel.

EASY WAY TO INCREASE YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO WHCC WITHOUT COSTING YOU A PENNY!
Did you know that WHCC is one of the Community Rewards Partners with Ralph’s and Food4Less? What does that mean? It means if you register your Ralph’s card online, a percentage of your spending at the store can go to benefit WHCC. All you have to do is go to the store’s website (Ralph’s), create an online account and/or sign in, and then click on “Community Rewards”. Then select WHCC from the list of eligible charities. The church’s organization number is RW127. Once you have done that, Ralph’s will track your spending and send WHCC a check each quarter that covers the proceeds from all those from the church who’ve signed up for the program. Make sure you look carefully when you select the charitable organization, however. The church’s Nursery School is also a Community Rewards Partner. Our accounts are entirely separate. If you choose Woodland Hills Community Church Nursery School – and not Woodland Hills Community Church – the church will not receive any of the proceeds.
