Q. How can I learn about the church and become a member?
- A: The church offers a class called Discover: Woodmen.
It is the spot to ask questions and learn more about the church. The teaching team includes pastors who explain the church’s beliefs, vision, ministry philosophy, leadership structure, and how to become an active participant in the church community. At the end of the class, you'll be invited to consider membership, but there is no pressure.
Q. Is Woodmen affiliated with any denomination?
- A: No
We are an independent, non-denominational church. We align in conviction and purpose with other gospel-centered, bible believing churches both past and present who ascribe and submit to the rich, historical creedal affirmations of Scripture, such as the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed.
Q. How is Woodmen governed?
- A: We are staff led and elder governed.
Our Lead Pastor of Teaching and Vision serves as an elder and is accountable to our elder board. Woodmen Valley Chapel is both a civil corporation and community of faith, which subscribes to the eternal truths outlined in our Statement of Faith. The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For the purposes of Woodmen Valley Chapel’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Elder Council is the final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
Q. Do you offer any singles groups?
- A: Yes
Information on our single adults group (40+) can be found on here, and also at Connect Central.
Q. Do you offer communion?
- A: Yes
Communion is served on a regular basis during the worship services — generally once a month. For those who desire a more frequent experience, there are self-contained communion kits available at each worship venue at the front tables. Staff members and elders who are up front at the end of the service can assist you with these elements. They are also there to pray with you if you desire.
