In December 2014, Todd Feske saw a Facebook post requesting clothing for the homeless. Todd had the option to drop donations at a shelter, but he wanted to know exactly who he was helping. As an avid hiker, he already knew of some camps in the area, so he collected hats, coats and scarves and made a few initial trips. He met two men who told him, “Sure, it’s Christmas time and everybody thinks about us now and then forgets about us the rest of the year.” Read More

"We have been podrishioners for several months. Our daughter, son-in-law and grandkids moved back to California after living in MN for 10 years. They attended Woodland Hills for about a year before they moved. Now we all go to the beach together on Thursdays, come home and have dinner together, then we watch last Sunday’s sermon together.
