Learning to Love

On MLK Sunday, we kicked off our first ever Race and Peace Learn-a-thon. Our goal was to reach a total of 500 learning hours by the end of February– but you guys blew the top off that goal by doubling it in just a few weeks. We thought we’d check in with a few of you to see what you’re learning. Read More 


February Update on Weekend Services

In case you didn’t catch the sermon this past weekend, it’s worth watching! But here, we also wanted to share the update Greg gave regarding the leadership’s decision to not yet re-open for in-person services. This decision is rooted in putting cross-like love at the center of our calling as a church. Read More 


2021 Ash Wednesday Drive-Thru

Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a special time set aside to intentionally focus on Jesus’ life, ministry, sacrifice and resurrection. In the past, we came together as a church for a simple meal and an interactive service to help us prepare our hearts for Good Friday and Easter. Though things look a little different this year, we still want to make space for reflection and active participation. Read More 


Come and See: Sacred Settlement Tours!

For years we’ve followed the work of our partner organization, Settled, and their creative vision for addressing chronic homelessness with small communities of tiny homes. Now, in Woodland’s back parking lot, there’s something brand new to see: the nation’s very first Sacred Settlement model, a collection of five tiny homes. Read More 


13th Discussion Recap

Thank you to everyone who joined Greg and Osheta’s Zoom discussion for the 13th documentary. Over 100 of you participated! We hope it was helpful to process and wrestle together with this difficult topic as a church body. Greg opened up the discussion with his reaction to the film, saying, “It’s really powerful and it condenses so much in such a short span of time.” This was his second time seeing it and he was still struck by the stories and statistics.

Podrishioner Profile: Emily & Andy Wagner

Since the COVID shut down began in March, the Wagners from Pennsylvania have been watching Woodland’s sermons every Sunday morning with their young sons Charlie and Drew. Charlie’s still a baby, so he drinks his breakfast during church, while Drew (7) plays with Legos and asks a lot of questions. Sometimes his questions extend past Sunday’s live stream into the next week. Emily and Andy are very open to exploring these questions because their families encouraged them to seek out truth when they were young. Read More 


What’s Good Trouble?

This year’s MLK theme is “Good Trouble,” a phrase that civil rights activist John Lewis often used to spur people on in the struggle for justice. John Lewis died this past year, but his words continue to ring out. We’re not used to hearing the words “good” and “trouble” paired together. But during the civil rights movement there was a good kind of trouble to get into: trouble that pushed back against the evils of racism. Read More 


13th Documentary Discussion

Join Greg Boyd and Osheta Moore on Zoom for guided prayer and discussion based on the documentary 13th. This thought-provoking film explores the intersection of race, justice and mass incarceration in the United States. Its title was inspired by the thirteenth amendment abolishing slavery and involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for conviction of a crime. Read More 


Learn-a-thon

At Woodland we are learning to love together and we’re passionate about racial healing and justice. So, we’re kicking off our first ever Learn-a-thon: “Race and Peace 2021.” We’ll provide resource ideas, and for every hour of learning that each of us completes, a generous donor will make a contribution to the One Fund, which supports local African American churches and ministries.

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
