The Gift of Giving: Operation Joy

Each year leading up to Christmas, Heroes Gate (Woodland’s children’s ministry) decorates Christmas trees with mittens, teddy bears and red circle ornaments. Though the trees are beautiful, they serve a much greater purpose than just spreading holiday cheer. Each ornament represents a gift for a child in need. Recipients include WH attendees, The Refuge, The LIFT, Close to My Heart (preschool), Voice in the Wilderness, and other ministries. Read More

Operation Joy 2019

Operation Joy is an opportunity to provide Christmas gifts to families who are struggling this year from within the Woodland Hills Church community. This is a great opportunity for all of us to share God’s love in a practical way. Everyone can participate in the process of choosing an ornament, purchasing a gift, putting it in the gift bag, and dropping it off, so the whole family is doing ministry together!

"I have battled anxiety for years, searching for something to help me overcome fear. I believe that through your sermons, I have found truth and I am more convinced of the extravagant love of God than ever. I finally feel like I am on the journey out of the darkness."
