The WORD of God
1, In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4 in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. 9 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him. 12 But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son,
full of grace and truth.

Westwood Weekend Bags
Dear Tapestry Church,
Westwood Elementary School sends it's sincere thanks for your donation of money and food to our Nutrition Club. We hand out 18-22 bags of food every Friday to needy students. The bags contain juice, snacks, fruit, and quick meals, like soup, mac & cheese, or noodles. Many of the students we serve are part of a sibling group that attend Westwood. Thanks to you, we can ensure they are well-nourished during the weekends and breaks. The students get so excited on Friday afternoon when we hand out the bags. The parents have welcomed this assistance and are thankful as well. Thank you for blessing our school and our neediest students and families!
I also want to specifically thank Dawn Arnold for her drive and commitment to help Westwood students. She delivers and organizes our little food pantry and helps pack bags when she is able. She truly has a heart for God and has a gift for serving others in the community.
Emily House, LCSWWestwood Elementary School
