15 OCTOBER 2015

Dear West View Family


Our matriculants are starting their final exams, our missions are preparing their budgets for 2016, and the shops are beginning to fill up with Christmas fare. The end of 2015 is almost upon us!

 

Nomination of Society Stewards

Graham Abrahams (Worship) and Kholiswa Hamese (Pastoral Care) are not available to serve as Society Stewards for 2016 and beyond. We will be electing two new Society Stewards at our Annual Society Meeting (A.S.M.) in November. Find attached a nomination form. One of the two Society Stewards appointed should be 30 years or younger. Any member of West View may nominate someone to stand as Society Steward. More details are contained on the back of the nomination form. Please prayerfully consider who you would like to nominate. The closing date for nominations is Sunday 25th October.

 

West View’s Got Talent is Friday after next! Have you bought your tickets yet? Even better, have you signed up to share your talent with the congregation? Contact Zuko (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to book a slot, or to buy your tickets.

 

Men@Work’s annual camp also begins Friday after next at Kadesh Barnea outside Hartbeespoort. The first input will be on Saturday morning, so those who stay in Centurion for Friday evening’s talent show won’t miss out by arriving at the camp on Saturday morning. The cost is R600. Sponsorships are available, so don’t let the cost deter you. I really encourage men who have joined West View in the last 12 months to come on the camp. It’s a great way to get to know the other men in our congregation. The programme will include watching the Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals! The application form and more details are on our website.

 

Ithemba: Exciting changes are underway at Ithemba. Keep your ear to the ground for more details!

 

Visit of Methodists from Russia and America to West View: Next week, a team of 9 Methodists from Russia and America will be spending 3 days visiting Ditshego and West View. The Americans are members of Church of the Resurrection, with whom we have an ongoing partnership. The Russians include the Methodist Bishop of the entire Eurasia Region, plus two of his Superintendents. We’re having a reception for our visitors next Wednesday 21st October 6h30 for 7h00pm in the Luke Hall. It’s a bring ‘n share finger supper. Bring a plate of eats, and enjoy the opportunity to meet our partners in the gospel, and hear about the work that they are doing for God’s Kingdom. RSVP to Avril (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or 084 453 2200 by next Monday 19th October. The team will be doing home visits in Mooiplaas next Wednesday afternoon, and have extended an invitation to West View members to accompany them on the home visits. If you would like to do so, please contact Isabel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

 

Kind regards
