Dear West View family
We’re just two Sundays out from concluding our Ten Commandments series, and what a wonderful journey it has been. It has been good to be reminded that God’s rules are gifts of love, given to us so that we can experience abundant life, both as individuals, and as a community.
JULY IS WORSHIP MONTH AT WEST VIEW
One of the practices that enable West View to continue to grow and thrive is the practice of PERPETUAL TINKERING. As we strive for excellence in ministry, and as we strive to become more effective in being a place where God’s Holy Spirit changes lives, we’re perpetually tinkering with how we do things. We experiment with fresh ways of doing things, and we aren’t afraid to try something new. As perpetual tinkerers, we know that some of the new things we try won’t be effective, but we trust that by being bold enough to take risks, we will also grow and learn in the process, and so remain relevant to the ever-changing society which God calls us to impact with His love.

VISIT FROM COLLEEN MILSTEIN
It was inspiring to hear of the wonderful work that Colleen is doing through Loom International http://www.loominternational.org/ Your generous donations raised R7500 in support of Colleen’s work. Thank you for this tangible expression of love and support.
TITHE MONTH FEEDBACK
Whilst we’re talking of generosity, thank you for your generous tithes and offerings during May. If we can keep our giving at this level for the remainder of 2017, we will be well placed to finish 2017 in a sound financial position, having resourced West View to fulfil God’s calling upon it.

FAREWELL FOR PHILIP SHARPE
Philip’s farewell will be the morning services of 25th June. We will take time to thank Philip for his contribution to our life over the past 4 ½ years. We will have a farewell tea with eats after both morning services. As is our custom, I invite you to contribute towards a farewell gift to Philip. You can do this via eft into the West View bank account (FNB, Eldoraigne, Branch Code: 250-655, Acc number: 6203 4307 670, Reference: ‘Philip Farewell’) or by placing your gift into an envelope and placing it in the offertory on any of the next 3 Sundays. Envelopes for this purpose are available at the information desk in the church foyer. Philip takes up appointment at The Glen Methodist Church on 1st July.
In the service of Christ
