Welcome to Woodland

Sunday, March 26

Welcome to Woodland!
We are excited to invest in your life today. Our goal is to help you know that through Jesus we have a life of hope, purpose and joy. We want to be a church who values who God created you to be. You Matter. We’re glad you’re here! We’re looking forward to what He will do next. No matter what we’re facing, we have reason to hope!

- Pastor Tim Passmore
“He said to me, ‘My grace is enough for you, because power is made perfect in weakness.’ So I’ll gladly spend my time bragging about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power can rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9

Current Series: That's A Great Question

Statistics tell us that more and more people are turning away from God and believing in their own paths for life. Why? THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION! During this series, we’ll be learning the answers to many questions that people are asking that are keeping them from knowing God personally and living the lives that God desires for us. If you’re a skeptic, this series is for you. If you have a relationship with God but know those who don’t believe in Him, this series is also for you. Join us as we learn together the answers that we’ve bee looking for! 


The Value of One.
The Power of Many. 

The Lord has BIG plans for Woodland in 2023! Our ministries are expanding and God is moving. But our volunteer numbers aren’t where we’ll need them to be for expansion, so we are starting  a new volunteer initiative called #Betheone for our 2023 IMPACT TEAM.

Our “whys” are simple:
•The ONE helps fuel the ministry.
•Someone’s eternity will be affected by ONE helping.
•Every-ONE has been given gifts by God to use for ministry.

Be the ONE.

Our family at Woodland is driven by involved volunteers that understand and support our Mission. Our Every Day Matters model requires a lot of involvement and support not only by staff leading but by the 2800 members that call Woodland home. We currently only have 10% of our regular attenders volunteering for various serve positions on our campus. The church average is upwards of 20%. So we would like to challenge ourselves to be above the status quo!

When there is a need you may be the one!  
• Be the one that steps up to a new opportunity at Woodland.
• Be the one to share your gifts that you have been given by God.
• Be the one to take responsibility for ministry happening all around us at Woodland.

Say a new “yes!” to what God has for you this next year in the area of service on the IMPACT Team. Take a look at the positions you may be able to say “yes!” to this next year, prayerfully consider what the Lord may be asking you to do- then commit. We’ll make it fun!

Be the ONE.

Thank you for your consideration!

VBS 2023

Save The Date: June 5-8

Woodland VBS 2023: June 5 - 8
"Following Jesus changes the game!"
Jesus Helps Us Through The Twists and Turns of Life!

Ready Player One, it's time to level up for this year’s VBS. Spin the spinner, beat the clock, skip
ahead, level up, and play to win! You’ll need to bring your A-game for this year’s VBS. Our theme of Twists & Turns is a fantastical celebration of games of all kinds. From classic tabletop games to video games and more, kids will play their way through VBS while learning that Jesus guides them through all the twists and turns of their lives. They’ll find that even when they mess up it’s never “game over.”

Our Woodland Culture says: EVERY DAY MATTERS.
Every Day is a great day to love God, love people, and do something about it!

Our Woodland Culture says: YOU MATTER.
Our worth is connected to our Creator. If God is of great and inestimable worth, then human beings made in his image are of great value, too–  regardless if they believe in him yet or not. In light of this truth, how do we affirm the dignity of the people around us? At Woodland, we believe it’s by having a heart posture and actions that say "You Matter" by showing them the pure and complete love of Jesus Christ.

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!
