Welcome to Woodland

December 19, 2021

“But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” – Galatians 4:4-5

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  



December 24 @ 3pm, 4:30pm, 6pm

Do you hear what I hear? John 1:14 says: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. Come worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords with us on Christmas Eve, December 24 at 3:00pm, 4:30pm or 6:00pm. We will have a family friendly service that everyone is sure to enjoy. Oh come let us adore Him!


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.

Our First Step is a Meet N Greet, so we can get to know you, and you can get to know us!
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.

Because YOU MATTER to Him, YOU MATTER to us.
