Spring Fling Dance

Spring, our fickle friend. You bring sunshine and rain, warmth and then a cool down, snow and melting. You are welcomed and loathed all at the same time. We welcome you and your warmth and the hope of summer that you bring. We loath that March is often the snowiest month of the year, and we are very sick of … Read More

“No one wakes up and aspires to be homeless one day,” says Mary Anderson, one of the Care pastors here at Woodland. “We never know why or how people end up in the shelter, sometimes a single event is enough to cause it.” In October 2017, the Pioneer Press reported that Ramsey County has seen a 22 percent spike in … Read More

When we’re confident, we say we’re sure. When we sort of agree we say, “Yeah… sure.” When faced with the various worldviews and opinions in our society about spirituality and faith, many people say, “Sure. If it works for you, that’s great.”  But Jesus says he’s the only Truth. How can we hold that conviction in our culture of tolerance? How can we navigate the maze of truth with humility and confidence? Join … Read More
