Join Zoom Meeting
JOIN THE NEXT ZOOM FELLOWSHIP
When: Every Thursday Night
What have you been up to? With limited opportunities to see each other face to face, Zoom Fellowship is a social gathering to catch up on our lives together.
We all meet in the Zoom Room which is easy to do. All you have to do is click at the bottom. If you do not have Zoom on your computer or tablet it will ask if you want to download the software. This usually takes seconds. Then it will ask if you want to “open zoom?” When you click on the “open zoom” button and you are in the waiting room and will be admitted by the host.
Once the Chat starts, we talk for a few minutes, Lorne will open with prayer, then send you to breakout rooms with 4-5 other people to talk. We do this several times so you get to talk with multiple people. We close with a time of prayer in the main room before the meeting room is closed.
In order to participate, you have to have a camera and microphone in your computer or tablet or connected to them. Webcams and external USB microphones are available for purchase on the web and delivered to your door.

Many of you have been anticipating donating to the Youth Rummage Sale this year! We have decided to make a small pivot and do a large donation to Value Village (Tigard). Value Village will pay us by the pound for both hard and soft goods. The funds will be deposited into the Youth Mission account for future work.
If you plan to donate anything to the youth for this cause, please let us know the number of bags of soft goods (clothes, sheets, etc) and hard goods (everything else) we can expect from you by PLEDGING using this link: https://fundrive.savers.com/e/westpresmissionfund
We will be accepting donations at Westminster September 28-October 1st.
What can we take?
WE CAN ACCEPT All items must be clean and in good, clean and sellable condition. Men's, women's and children's - shoes, fashion accessories, belts, purses, bags, backpacks, blankets, sheets, tablecloths, curtains, kitchen items, decorative items, knick-knacks, toys and games, small electronics, small appliances, televisions less than 5 years old.
