Dear West View family
I greet you in the name of Jesus
FEEDBACK FROM ‘IT’S TIME’ PRAYER RALLY
Over 50 West View members travelled by bus from West View to Bloemfontein to participate in the Angus Buchan Prayer Rally. Feedback from those who attended this momentous event has been inspiring. In addition, over 150 West View members gathered to pray in the West View sanctuary on Saturday afternoon. We spent over an hour interceding for our nation, and I was uplifted by the passionate prayers offered in faith. Our history as a nation gives witness to the fact that when God’s people both pray and work for justice and peace, God performs miracles that offer hope and a future. Let’s keep praying and working for South Africa to reflect Kingdom principles. Thank you to Men@Work for organising the bus, and to Alveen Jacobs for leading our prayer meeting so powerfully.

MAY TITHE MONTH
During May, we’re challenging you to give 10% of your income to God’s work at West View. Over the years, it has been humbling to see how you as a congregation have responded to this challenge, with May’s income going a long way to eliminating the shortfall of the difficult first few months of every year. Here is a summary of tithes and offerings for the first 3 months of 2017.
