Working Parents Fundraiser

Help families juggle jobs and kids during COVID! We all know that going back to school this fall is different than any other year. But for some working parents with younger kids, it’s a real crisis: they aren’t sure how they will be able to go to work because their kids need to do school at home. Read More 


Stay Connected: Fall 2020

Our lives continue to be impacted by COVID, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected as a church body! Perhaps now more than ever, it’s important for all of us to be active with other Kingdom people, doing Kingdom things. The formats may have changed, but church is still happening – we hope you take advantage of these online ministries and smaller in-person gatherings we have planned for this fall! Read More

Woodland’s Gathering Groups are an easy, low risk way to engage authentically with others while diving deeper into the weekend sermons. Shawna Boren, our Engagement Pastor, says, “Of course, there is a measure of risk any time you put yourself out there in a new way, but these groups are well worth it.” The Blaine, Minnesota Gathering Group can attest to this. They believe the rewards far outweigh the risks. Read More 


An Update on In-Person Services

Like other churches around the world, our leadership teams have been in prayer and discussion regarding our return to in-person weekend services. Back in May, we made the commitment to hold off on gathering in the building until at least this fall. Since then, both the pastoral team and the church board have been regularly processing this decision. Read More 


Local Listener: Justin Kay

Justin was not raised with religion, so his world was rocked when he first came to understand God’s character. Around 2006, he was open to believing in a higher power, but had no understanding of God or the Bible. Later on, in an AA meeting he was invited to a service at Woodland by his friend, Kevin. He remembers feeling welcomed and experiencing church in a completely different way than ever before. Read More
