Welcome To Woodland

September 5, 2021

Every Day Matters.

“I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another
 or my praise to idols. See, the former things have taken place,
 and new things I declare; before they spring into being
 I announce them to you.” Isaiah 42: 8-9
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!
- Pastor Tim Passmore

IMAGINE THE FULLY DEVOTED LIFE

Starting October 3

Imagine the Fully Devoted Life is a new message series and personal study beginning October 3rd. It's a series about self-discovery in how we relate to Jesus and others in our lives. We tackle 4 core topics: Testimony (A Story to Tell) Time (A Schedule to Keep), Talents (The Gifts to Use)  and Treasures (The Resources to Share). This is also a personal study which allows you to dig deeper in your own lives. To help in this, we are providing a book for each person for a minimal cost. You'll be leaning more through God's word, evaluating yourself in specific areas of your life and spending time with God through daily quiet times to help you communicate with God about your personal growth. To pre-order your book, click on the link below. There is an option for pick up or for delivery. We want to make it easy for on campus and on-line worship attenders to participate. We are also providing small group opportunities for those who want to take an extra step and learn with others. If you are interested in engaging in a group, you can also click the link below to sign up. Many of our current groups will be going through the study. We are also adding three groups between our services that will be held in our new facility. We can't wait to see what God teaches us and does through us as believers as we grow and reach others with the Good News of Jesus!

AWAKENING

A W A K E N I N G • SEPT 19 • 9am & 10:55am

The first place we see the word “worship” is in Genesis 22 where Abraham is taking Isaac up the mountain. In Hebrew the word means to “bow the head below the heart”. Praise and worship isn’t “fast songs vs. slow songs”. Worship is internal engagement and praise is external expression. We are so excited for our Annual PRAISE & WORSHIP event called AWAKENING! Mark your calendars for Sept 19th, 9am & 10:55 am services! On campus & woodlandlive.com

Prayer

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

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

:: NEXT STEPS
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. First Steps is a way in which you can learn about our different ministries and opportunities that  we have here at Woodland. As well as learn how to take the next step here with  us. If you’re interested, simply email melanie@gowoodland.com to sign up or  get more info.
:: EVERY DAY MATTERS
Each day is unique and a time to experience and show God's love. We believe that there can never be too much love in a community and our showing it has the potential to change a culture for the good. It happens when we live life together by encouraging one another and helping each other be who God created us to be. You Matter because you are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God, the Creator of the Universe.
Because YOU MATTER to Him, YOU MATTER to us.
Our Campus is called to provide a complete experience for followers of Christ, Monday through Sunday. We love to do life with people! The Lord is in our daily walk and He determines our footsteps. And In all of it, every day, we give God glory!
That’s what Every Day Matters means to us.
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do,
do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
