Our church is in the process of making many changes (some big and some small).  As an option, we considered united with another church in order to help us make those changes,  However, after much prayer and discussion, it has been decided that Westwood Baptist Church will not unite with New Hope Loudonville.  New Hope Loudonville will still be planting a church called New Hope Wooster but we will not be a part of starting that new church.  In the future Westwood Baptist Church may change its name, but we will not change denominations.  Westwood Baptist Church will remain Southern Baptist.  Because, God continues to move our church in new and exciting directions, please pray about how God might be calling you to help those of us at Westwood Baptist Church become the church God wants us to be.



Every Sunday Night from 5-6:30 pm.  Prayer and Planning Meetings.  Currently, these meetings have taken the place of our monthly business meetings.  Join us as we pray about, discuss, and implement changes that will better align the ministries of our church with the vision of our church. 

Some of those changes include but are not limited to: Building renovations, children’s ministries, nursery, youth, senior adults, worship team, changing from Sunday schools to small groups, changing how decisions are made on behalf of the entire church, hiring of more paid staff, acquiring a building equity loan, etc. 

Please note that the focus of next Sunday night’s meeting we will be discussing Children’s Church, Nursery, purchase of new chairs and projection equipment, hiring of another paid staff member, and acquiring a building equity loan.      



Every Wednesday Night from 8:15-9 pm. Worship Team Practice.  If you like to sing, can play an instrument, our would like to help with behind the scenes stuff (sound board, set-up and tear down, etc.) join us immediately following Bible Study.


Saturday August 12th @ noon. Adopt-a-highway.  Join us as we serve our community by picking up trash!  Call Patrick if you have any questions.  330-567-2053.  


August 13th. Morning Baptism Service.  Do you need to be baptized?  If so, please let pastor Matt know.


If you want to help mow the church’s grass, give Don Ridenbaugh (330-264-0356) your name & phone number.  He’ll call you and let you know what day he’s coming to the church to cut the grass.  (We need people to bring their weed-eaters!) 


Children’s church and Nursery Workers needed.  Contact Amanda McLain (330-347-6548) if you would like to serve in one of these two areas.


Can you smile and shake people’s hands at the same time?  If you can, we need you to be a greeter.  Our church’s goal is to have a greeter at every door before and after our Sunday morning service.  If interested, please call Patrick Sprague (330-567-2053).


We need people to work The Café.  Every Sunday Morning, before and after the service, we would like to begin serving hot and cold beverages.  If you would like to be in charge of this ministry or work at The Café on Sunday mornings, let Pastor Matt know (330-264-5826).


Good with Computers?  We need someone to set up a room for the kids.  We already have the computers.  All we need is someone who is willing to install software, parental controls, and eventually set them up in a network with each other and the internet.


Like to Clean?  If you want to help keep our building looking and smelling clean, contact Mid at 264-1503.


Please pray for and encourage the following people:


Ray & Delores Gindlesberger.  Praise God! Ray’s tumors were successfully removed and his recovery is going well!  However, we need to continue to pray for his recovery to go well.
