SAVING TREES, UPDATING INFORMATION, TRAININGS, AND BREAKFAST ROUNDTABLES...
We have a couple of administrative changes/ updates to cover first off. That may not sound very exciting, but don't stop reading yet! Although possibly mundane, these are important updates.
First, we need to update and create our church directory and information. In order to do this, we need some information from you. Let us know your family's names, address, birthdays, phone number(s), and email address(es). You can text these to Scott (207-400-2481), email Shara (firstname.lastname@example.org), or hand deliver them to Shara.
Second, we are going to try something new with our weekly bulletins. With the goal of saving paper and cutting back on the cost of printing supplies, we are hoping to get the majority of our attendees to use a digital copy of the bulletin. The plan is to put a PDF of the bulletin up on the calendar (which can be found on FBCWestbrook.com under the calendar link). When you click on the AM Worship event on the date, you should see a PDF bulletin that you can download. We will also send out a link each week in the newsletter that will take you right to it. You can test it out this week by using the link down below, found under the "Save Paper" image. We will still print some bulletins for people who are visiting and for those who feel they need to have a paper copy. And fear not! Ruth will still be giving out hugs even if you don't take/need a bulletin.
It is a busy weekend. So busy, in fact, that you get to hear from me (Shara) instead of Scott for this email...but you probably guessed that based on all the administrative updates.
Now for the fun! We have our Guatemala Team in training tonight and tomorrow, we have our new Breakfast Roundtables group starting Sunday @ 8:45, and we are continuing our 'God's Heart for Children' Sunday morning. Don't forget to set your clocks ahead an hour Saturday night before you go to bed, and we hope to see you Sunday morning!
What's Happening This Week?.
FRIDAY @ 6:00-8:00 PM - Guatemala Team training. SATURDAY @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM - Guatemala Team training. SUNDAY @ 8:45 AM - Breakfast Roundtables.

Starting next week, we will be printing fewer bulletins. Our hope is that we can save paper and save money to be better used elsewhere. We will put the bulletin PDF up online on FBCWestbrook.com, in the calendar, so you can view and use it on your phone or other device. We will also send out a link in the email each week.
