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.

Tiny Home Project

Latest Update: Settled is offering tours of the model Sacred Settlement in our parking lot. Sign up on their website here! In 2018 we partnered with Settled, an organization working to build tiny homes for people experiencing long-term homelessness. Tiny homes are part of a nationwide movement to address homelessness. They are cost-effective, safe, beautiful and eco-friendly. Plus, they are … Read More 


Serving the Homeless

Since 2014, Walking With A Purpose has gathered clothing, food and camping supplies and given them directly to our chronically homeless neighbors in the St. Paul area. WWAP spends time building relationships with people, finds out what their needs are, and assists them with love and compassion. As a part of our 2018 holiday fundraiser, we raised $5,000 to make space in our building so that Walking With … Read More 


The TAP: Just Be Yourself

Along with all the usual festivities, there will also be other holiday surprises. TAP artists will be showcasing their art and crafts at the TAP Boutique. It’s an excellent opportunity to purchase unique Christmas gifts. Who knows, Santa might even be there . . . Read More 


Tiny Home, Big Splash!

Construction of this first home enabled Settled to reach many of their goals: successfully using volunteer labor, achieving safety certification, meeting Minnesota climate insulation standards, sticking to their budget and creating a manual for future construction teams to use. In other words, the house has made a great transition from theory to reality! Read More

"I've been a WH podrishioner for several years now and I can't tell you how much it has changed my life. I came across these podcasts at a time when I was in an extremely unhealthy/abusive situation, and these teachings were immensely influential to me maintaining my faith and sanity. THANK YOU for showing me what a Jesus-looking God is like and what it means to follow Him. Many, many blessings to all of you!"

– Christina, from Oregon
