Tiny Home Fundraiser Goal Met!

Over the past few weeks we held a fundraiser to help out one of our partner organizations, Settled, in building their second Tiny Home, among other goals for this summer. We’re happy to say we’ve surpassed our goal of $35,000 with a total of $38,049 — thanks to you! Read More 


Food Shelf Update

The Coronavirus has left many around the world struggling with food insecurity, and Minnesota is no exception: our food shelves have seen a spike in families and individuals needing assistance. For some, it’s their first time receiving this kind of help due to the rise in unemployment. In an article for KARE 11, Second Harvest Food Bank predicted a growing surge in hunger for Minnesota. They estimated that, “by August, more than one in eight people will be struggling to put meals on the table.” Hunger Solutions, another anti-hunger organization, believes that for many, food shelf visits have become “the ‘new normal.’” Read More

Food Shelf Update

Woodland Hills employees have stepped in to keep a food shelf running at our church by stocking shelves, packaging food and handing out boxes curbside. And the food shelf is busier than ever as we serve the our community. Read More 


Calling all Mask-Makers

The CDC now recommends face coverings to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus. Please consider helping us provide homemade sewn masks to our partner ministries. Some people who are served by these organizations don’t have access to sewing machines, but we know many in our congregation do! Read More 


Loving Our Neighbors

Though we’re unable to hold events or weekend services at Woodland, we’re still doing everything we can to support those in need. We’ve been working closely with our partner organizations to make sure families have childcare and are well fed. Read More 


Practicing Kingdom Hospitality

From cover to cover, the Bible reveals God’s amazing hospitality towards us. He creates space for us, invites us into his family and prepares a place for us. At Woodland, we want to imitate God’s Kingdom perspective as much as we can, including his hospitality. That’s why every March and April, we open our doors to families in need through Project Home.

The Growing Vision for Tiny Homes

After Woodland helped build the first tiny home model, Settled took it on the road to a variety of communities. One of their visits was to Faith Lutheran Church in Forest Lake. After interacting with Settled, the church felt called to pursue the possibility of creating a Sacred Settlement. Throughout the summer Woodland and Settled met regularly with Faith Lutheran’s leadership team, helping them navigate this topic with their members. Read More 


Project Home is Coming

For the past eleven years, Woodland has been honored to act as a Project Home site where we provide overnight shelter for families in need of housing.
This year in March and April, we will be hosting families again and we need your help! If you’d like to volunteer, there are two shifts available: 5:30-8:30pm and an overnight shift from 8pm to morning. It’s a fun night of hanging with the families and providing food and shelter. All supplies and food provided, you just show up.  Read More 


Communitas Twin Cities

Communitas Twin Cities is a missional community intentionally serving the homeless and impoverished in St Paul. For the past five years, they’ve gone OUT on the street and supported the community. That’s why Communitas has often been referred to as a “church on the street.” Now that they’ve partnered with Saint Mark’s Lutheran Church, they’re able to bring the community INSIDE and serve them in a much more relaxed and comfortable environment.
