Do You see what i see? 

This is the second year to celebrate our last few months of the year through a campaign called “Do You See What I See”.This campaign takes us through the fourth quarter of 2021 looking with awe and wonder at the goodness of God. Seeing together what he has done, what he is doing and what he will do through Woodland.
We began on social media, in October, looking at His goodness through the vastness of his creation. Do you see what I see in every single thing he has created? What awesome, artistic and creative wonders he has made. Then, in November and December we focus on the goodness of God in our community and on the Woodland Campus specifically. Ministries, testimonies, opportunities will be some of the areas you’ll hear of God's goodness! You will also receive a mailer, giving you an opportunity for a special Christmas offering, to help us continue all the ministries the Lord has given us to steward at Woodland.
