Scouting: UMCWV sponsors a Cub Scout Pack, a Boy Scout Troop and a Venture Crew to give boys and girls the opportunity to participate in scouting activities:

Cub Scout Pack #3785 is for boys in grades 1 – 5 or ages 6 – 11. This pack is open to any boy in the Conejo Valley area and draws primarily from elementary schools and families in Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and the surrounding areas.

Cub Scouts participate in activities to earn badges, belt loops and pins in skills, community service, sports and citizenship.  The Pack also organizes activities such as overnight trips to museums and zoos, hikes, visits to local places of interest and much more.

We welcome your interest!  Visit www.pack3785.org or contact Kelli Matthies, Committee Chair, at kmgmatt@yahoo.com for more information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boy Scout Troop #775 has been sponsored by UMCWV since 1975. During this wonderful tenure more than 113 boys have been promoted to the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor of scouting.

This troop is very active and consists of boys, ages 11-18, coming from the Cub Scout ranks and others joining to learn life skills – such as first aid, CPR, survival skills – and to build life-long friendships. There are multiple levels of scouting in which the boys earn merit badges while developing specific skills and knowledge. Hiking, camping, skiing, rocket launch, winter camp, and community service are only a few of the activities.

New scouts are always welcome.  Come visit and get introduced to scouting and the troop’s dedicated leaders.  Contact committee chair Tim Sottile at tsottile@tsottilebaltaxe.com or 818-889-0050.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Westlake Village Music Society As a community outreach program started in 1992, Music Ministry sponsors 2 – 4 classical concerts per year in the sanctuary. It offers opportunities for area residents to hear outstanding artists in concert for a reasonable cost.

Pizazz Music Camp Started in 1993, this weeklong program is held the 1st full week of August each summer. Children (120 maximum) in the church and community – entering 1st-8th grades in the fall – are invited to participate in a music adventure, making use of singing, handbell and choir chime ringing, choreographed movement and music enrichment classes. The basic and more advanced techniques of reading, singing and playing music, as well as rhythm and movement are taught by a highly qualified staff. Participants put on a Celebration Performance on Friday evening.

UMCWV also has several community organizations that rehearse or meet weekly at the church, i.e. Village Voices Chorale, Westlake Village Symphony, Alcoholics Anonymous, Adult Children of Alcoholics and Al-Anon.
