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

Graduating Seniors

High school graduation is a significant milestone for many young people. Unfortunately as we all know, this year typical commencement ceremonies and traditional senior festivities have been cancelled and replaced with virtual stand-ins. To say this situation is a major bummer would be putting it pretty lightly. So, what can we do to encourage and celebrate Woodland’s class of 2020? Read More 


The Power of Blessing

Words are powerful. Proverbs 18:21 says that our tongues hold the power of life and death. So, it seems, we are fully equipped to call forth God’s many blessings to those in need. The key in all of this is recognizing that God is at the center of it all. According to Christian writer Dallas Willard, “Blessing is the projection of good into the life of another. It isn’t just words. It’s the actual putting forth of your will for the good of another person. It always involves God, because when you will the good of another person, you realize only God is capable of bringing that.” Read More 


Made with Love

The current coronavirus pandemic has left a lot of us feeling stressed, anxious, depressed and alone. As the Body of Christ, we want to support those who are struggling by offering messages of hope. Though we’re not able to gather together in person, we can still bless one another the old-fashioned way – that’s why we’re accepting encouragement cards and sending them to people in our own church family, food shelf clients and our neighbors in long-term healthcare facilities.

Lenten Reflections

Easter is less than two weeks away and it looks like we’ll still be cooped up in our homes. Regardless of our physical location, our hearts will all be together while we fellowship with Jesus. We can still hold our hands high in worship, we can still reflect, and while we may not be able to share a meal in-person, we can make the best of the opportunities we do have. Let’s continue to prepare our hearts for Easter and experience deep intimacy with Jesus.  Read More 


Good Friday & Easter Services 2020

Next weekend marks a momentous time for us as we reflect on Jesus’ journey to the cross and beyond.
