Activity Groups

disc golf club

Woodland Community Park will be hosting a BI-weekly handicap disc golf tournament through East Manatee Disc Golf Club. This will be a great way for the people of Woodland Community Church that are interested in the sport of disc golf to engage with locals from the community. Signups will begin at hole 1 every other Sunday at 7:00 AM and we will begin at 7:30. Handicap scores will be kept up with and giveaways will be given away for various closest to the pin shots for each tournament. We are excited to offer another great gift and resource God had given our church to reach the community, and have fun at the same time. Group leader is Daniel Sayne.

About Us

Get to know more about what makes us different.

Woodland is like a small church with a lot of people. How do we stay small with hundreds of people in attendance at every service? We choose to live in community with each other. We believe that God has designed all of us to be in community with one another.

So...if you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus and at the same time have intentional relationships with people who have the same interests,  join one of our Activity Groups that will help you grow into the person God created you to be while having a blast doing what you enjoy with others!
