So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10
(Thank you Brenda Keech for submitting your favorite Bible verse.) 

Welcome to Woodland! We are excited to invest in your life today.
Our goal is to help you know that through God we have a life of hope, purpose and joy. You are worth the investment and we want to be a church who values who God created you to be. You Matter! We’re glad you’re here!

BIG FINISH - 3 week Sermon Series

Through June 6

If life were a race, how well would you finish? During this message series, we'll be looking at what the Bible has to say about finishing well. It's a race to look like Jesus and to bring as many as we can across the line. It's time to find strength to carry on with our eyes fixed on the prize.

Project B-Town: Help serve the Next Generation

In Need of: Food Donations & Volunteers

HELLO CHURCH FAMILY!  We are less than 4 weeks away now from Middle School B-Town and we have a great need for FOOD DONATIONS.  As you can imagine, it is a big undertaking to feed around 300 people a day.  Any donation of food you can commit to would be GREATLY appreciated! Look for the link below to sign up for as much or as little as you can. Every donation helps! Thank you so much for your generosity!

In addition to food, we need VOLUNTEERS as well.  We need people to help us with serving the meals each day.  This is an amazing way that you can help serve the next generation, the shifts are only 2 hours each shift and you can choose 1 or 1 every day!  Look for the link below to sign up for Volunteering. Thank you so much for helping serve the next generation!!

So many have told us they miss the prayer chalkboard at church so they can pray over the needs of the Woodland Family. So we have designed a digital chalkboard here for you to send prayer requests in but also to view other requests that need to be lifted up.
Thank you for sharing!

Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.
Matthew 18:19

A Few Important Details

We offer two weekend services—Sunday at 9:00  and 10:55 am. The message is the same in both services. The worship style in  the 9 am service is a blended form of new & traditional worship, while the worship style at 10:55 am is more contemporary.

Are you a visitor for the first time this weekend? Have you been a regular visitor for a while now and ready for the next step? There’s a  great upcoming class, It’s called First Steps and it’s a one night, small group style class led by our Senior Pastor, Tim.
