Welcome to Woodland

Easter Sunday, April 17

"He is not here; he has risen!"
Luke 24:6-7

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

Happy Easter!

Yes, Jesus rose from the dead, but what difference does it make?

First, Jesus’ resurrection means that we can have hope. The Bible says that death is our enemy (1 Cor 15:26). Experience also teaches us this. We fear death will take us from our loved ones, and we fear death will take our loved ones from us. No matter our wealth, beauty, or status, death is our end. How depressing! However, Jesus offers and supplies us with victory over death. The Bible says that those who believe in Christ will rise from the dead as he did. Jesus’ resurrection means that we have hope beyond the grave.

Second, Jesus’ resurrection means that God’s redemption applies to both the spiritual and the physical. Sometimes when we contemplate salvation, we think of it in only spiritual terms. That is, we’ll be like angels one day, floating on the clouds like ghosts. That’s not redemption. The Bible teaches that salvation entails the physical. It involves our bodies. Jesus’ literal, physical resurrection means that the whole cosmos —bodies, stars, trees, and plants — will be redeemed by God. God cares about the physical, along with the spiritual. Jesus’ resurrection shows us that.

Third, Jesus’ resurrection means that Jesus is Lord. Through the resurrection, Jesus conquered our greatest enemy, death. He is victor and conqueror. Jesus now has an incorruptible body. He can never be harmed. He can never be hurt. He reigns as the exalted God-man. All people will one day bow to him in submission and honor (Phil 2:10-11).

To summarize: Jesus has done tremendous acts of kindness for us. There’s no more relevant person than Jesus. He provides us what we need — hope, redemption, and protection. He rose. He lives. He reigns. And he offers you what we need. Will you trust him this Easter? May God bless you richly through the resurrection of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.


We have a digital prayer chalkboard for you to post prayer requests 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

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.

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. So no matter what you do each day: work, play, worship, pray - do it with intentionality! God is in all of it and can be found in it every day.
That's what EVERY DAY MATTERS means to us.
