Meeting the Challenge of Distance Learning

In fall 2020, Woodland joined our partners at The Lift and Close to My Heart daycare to begin a distance learning program for 32 students who were grades K-6 with one 7th grader. Many of you will remember our Working Parents Fundraiser that raised money to help support the effort. Now that many of these students have returned to in-person learning we want you to know just what an impact you helped make for these families during the height of COVID. Read More

Learning to Love during Lent

Lent is a time when we walk alongside Jesus, in simplicity, prayer and surrender. It helps prepare our hearts to reflect on the cross and to celebrate the resurrection. We encourage you to go through this Lent Devotional between now and Easter! Read More

Podrishioner Profile: Tania Skinner

At Woodland Hills, we believe that Jesus invites us to connect with him at a heart level and not just a head level. Imaginative prayer is one of the gifts God gives us to do just that. Tania Clifford’s story is a beautiful example of how Jesus changes lives when we meet him in our imagination. Read More 


Learning to Love

On MLK Sunday, we kicked off our first ever Race and Peace Learn-a-thon. Our goal was to reach a total of 500 learning hours by the end of February– but you guys blew the top off that goal by doubling it in just a few weeks. We thought we’d check in with a few of you to see what you’re learning. Read More 


February Update on Weekend Services

In case you didn’t catch the sermon this past weekend, it’s worth watching! But here, we also wanted to share the update Greg gave regarding the leadership’s decision to not yet re-open for in-person services. This decision is rooted in putting cross-like love at the center of our calling as a church. Read More 


2021 Ash Wednesday Drive-Thru

Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a special time set aside to intentionally focus on Jesus’ life, ministry, sacrifice and resurrection. In the past, we came together as a church for a simple meal and an interactive service to help us prepare our hearts for Good Friday and Easter. Though things look a little different this year, we still want to make space for reflection and active participation. Read More 


Come and See: Sacred Settlement Tours!

For years we’ve followed the work of our partner organization, Settled, and their creative vision for addressing chronic homelessness with small communities of tiny homes. Now, in Woodland’s back parking lot, there’s something brand new to see: the nation’s very first Sacred Settlement model, a collection of five tiny homes. Read More 


13th Discussion Recap

Thank you to everyone who joined Greg and Osheta’s Zoom discussion for the 13th documentary. Over 100 of you participated! We hope it was helpful to process and wrestle together with this difficult topic as a church body. Greg opened up the discussion with his reaction to the film, saying, “It’s really powerful and it condenses so much in such a short span of time.” This was his second time seeing it and he was still struck by the stories and statistics.
