GATHER: We gather to learn and lift up.
For centuries the people of God have gathered for biblical teaching and worship. We continue that tradition today as we faithfully study the Bible together and respond through worship. Each weekend worship gathering is a gospel-centered celebration of what God has done in our midst, and a catalyst for us to dive into the work of ministry in the days ahead.
CONNECT: We connect others to Christ, and ourselves with each other.
Everybody needs somebody. God designed us to live the Christian life in authentic community — to share life and encourage one another in the faith. We believe the Bible invites us to a radical kind of belonging. So crafting a culture of belonging is a big part of who we are. We’d love to say hello and hear your story, and provide opportunities for you to connect with Christ and others through Woodmen.
GROW: We grow into the image and likeness of Christ.
We know that the Christian life is about more than just an hour on Sunday. To cultivate the image and likeness of Christ in us, we need to commit ourselves personally to growth and to authentic community with friends who encourage our faith. To grow in Christ, we seek to apply God’s word in our lives and look to the whole body of Christ for encouragement and exhortation.
CONTRIBUTE: We contribute to the work of ministry through serving and giving.
The pattern of Christ’s life was one of sacrificial service and He calls us to follow His example. In response to His working and leading in our lives, we use the gifts He has given us to share His love. Through contributing our time, talents and finances, we seek to serve our church, our city and our world to the glory of God.
