Pentecost Sunday is here! Wear red on Sunday as we celebrate the blessings of the Spirit.

We need point people for two projects: 1) Organizing the kitchen, and 2) The upcoming recycling fundraiser on June 10.

Update or add your information for our church directory! See Wendy this Sunday or next.

Please welcome our new guests, Forerunner Christian Church. They are a congregation renting Westhope in the afternoons.


Sign up to help with the Saturday June 10th recycling fundraiser! If you could help with one or two hours, please sign up with Pastor Erik.


Please support Westhope while you shop at Amazon! Go to and select Westhope as your charity of choice. It doesn’t cost you anything and a small percentage of your total will go directly to Westhope.  Please note that you have to shop at, not the regular in order for the donation to be made. If you prefer a handy button to get you there:

Saturday, June 3: Feldenkrais Workshop – Sensing Vitality We are hearing and reading about how “mindfulness” practices are as good for us as brushing our teeth. Practiced regularly, we can feel calmer, more rested and relaxed. While this calming of the nervous system is beneficial, a healthy system is elastic. That is, it is our ability to act (or inhibit action) within our environment invites us to be fully present. In this workshop, we will present Awareness through Movement lessons that will settle the system yet organize the musculature for movement. We hope you can join us.

10 am – registration begins at 9:30. We end at 11:30. The cost is $15.
Hands-on Functional Integration lessons are available following the workshop for $30. Please email to schedule.
Register and pay online at    We also accept cash or checks made out to Michele Westlaken on the day of – but please note, we cannot guarantee an individual hands-on lesson without pre-registering by email or text (408 205 0121)
Dress in warm comfortable layers, and bring your own pillows, mats or blankets.
We are in a large room that is tricky to cool/heat.
There will be a limited amount of moving blankets for general use.
