Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
Psalm 25:4-5

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

Current Series


Some of us have good days, and some of us have bad. Our emotions are a big part of who we are. God wants us to know that we can experience joy even in the most difficult circumstances of life. In this series, we’ll learn what God says about our emotional well-being and how we can make decisions that lead to healthy feelings. This has been a very impactful series so far. Join us in the journey!


Jennifer and Tim have a new podcast! They are inviting you into their home discussions for perspectives they address concerning spiritual, relational and emotional issues within our families and culture. They can be find on Spotify under JT Passmore or TAP the button above and scroll down to see all the episodes!

A Few Important Details

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.

Join us on the LINK journey to discover what we believe, why we believe it, and how to show the world, with Woodland. LINK is a 6-week journey discovering all that God has for you and how the Woodland Community can partner with you in your relationship with Christ. Our First Step is a Meet N Greet, so we can get to know you, and you can get to know us!
Our Woodland Culture says: YOU MATTER. 
You will hear us say this at Woodland. YOU MATTER because you are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God, the Creator of the Universe. You not only matter to God but YOU MATTER to us!
We know that everyone has a story. The beauty of the gospel is that no matter what a person's life story is, Jesus has come to redeem it and give it another ending. That's why we proclaim that we will never stop telling our stories about what we have seen and heard. We are made up of very real people, from real situations in life, and together we are united for worship, discipleship, and service. 
Our Woodland Culture says: EVERY DAY MATTERS.
Each day is unique and a time to experience and show God's love. Our Campus is called to provide a complete experience Monday thru Sunday. 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.

Please contact if we can answer any questions or help you in any way! We are here to serve you and serve the community of Manatee County and Surrounding Areas!
