Pull yourself out of that winter slump, because spring is just around the corner. What better way to get ready than with a little spring cleaning?
Woodland Hills Church of Christ is gearing up for its annual garage sale and wants to take those old, unwanted items off people’s hands. Are those old candlesticks that your mother-in-law gave you four Christmases ago not quite your style? Maybe it’s time to let them go. Your mother-in-law will understand, and they might be a real find for someone else. Along with donating used and new items, people are also welcome to shop the garage sale, April 18 – 20, to find new treasures of their own.
Of course, the church always welcomes attendance at its many events throughout the year, especially the weekly worship services. At Woodland Hills, though, folks will find things are done a little differently at times.
Often a day’s service can feel particularly uplifting. Perhaps there was a particular sermon or song that was especially moving. That’s why the church offers DVD recordings of both its Sunday worship services and its Wednesday night Bible studies. These recordings are available for a suggested donation of $1 each. To place an order for a copy, talk to the volunteers in the sound booth. They’re happy to help.
For some people, faith is more private than public, but it can be hard to carve out time to do it. For this reason, the church offers prayer connection the first Friday of every month from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Flyers are available just inside the sanctuary that will offer a suggested prayer topic. Or people can always pray on their own needs or concerns as well, as this is a special time for a private interlude with God to talk about anything and everything. Some people choose to stay for a quick prayer while others pray all day — either way, the church reserves this time just for guests. Anyone searching for a quiet, spiritual place to pray without distractions or interruptions should mark the calendar now. Don’t miss out.
