In Light of the Virus

Thanks for visiting Woodmen on the web. Out of care for our neighbors and in compliance with government directives, we’re encouraging folks to engage with our online worship services. A new service full of powerful, authentic worship and inspiring, gospel-centered teaching is released each Saturday at 6 PM for you to watch any time. To view the service in small-group community, join a Woodmen Huddle and catch the service each week with friends in a living room setting.

For those who are struggling with isolation and looking to gather in larger groups, we'll begin offering on-campus worship services beginning January 9, 2021. As COVID continues to be a significant concern in our county, we want to be diligent in showing care for the health of our community and complying with government guidance. So we’ll wear masks and have six feet of distance between parties in these services, out of deference and love for our neighbors.

RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR NEXT WEEKEND


Hello

We're glad you've stopped by! Visiting a new church can be overwhelming, but knowing what to expect can help make things better.

We believe Christ calls the church to be about people. So we’re glad to have all kinds of people join us every weekend. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done, the love of God is here for you and so are we.

We hope you’ll join us for a weekend service!

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT DURING A SERVICE?

We gather to encounter God and respond to Him in worship. As we sing songs together we lift up the name of Jesus, God’s Son who gave up his life and rose again to make a way for us to be in relationship with God. The words are projected on a big screen, so even if you don’t know the songs at first, you can join in if when you feel comfortable.

In each service we join ancient traditions of the church, practiced for millennia, celebrating the glory of the Father, Son and Spirit through song and prayer. We also see each gathering as a catalyst for tomorrow, providing fuel and inspiration for life in the days ahead.

Sometimes we’ll mix in hymns that have encouraged people of faith for hundreds of years, but we’ll also sing lots of current songs that reflect new things God is doing today. The music is dynamic and on most weekends, the band includes drums, electric guitars and keyboards. Other weekends we might feature just an acoustic guitar and a cello. About once each month we receive communion together.

WHAT SHOULD YOU WEAR?

We want you to feel at ease, so wear whatever clothes you’re comfortable in. We believe God cares more about our hearts than our clothes. You’ll usually find our teaching pastor in jeans and Converse.

I'VE BEEN TO WOODMEN A FEW TIMES & WOULD LIKE TO LEARN MORE. WHAT ARE SOME NEXT STEPS?

Well, that’s up to you. We’d love to get to know you better and help you feel at home. But we know that building church relationships isn’t a one-size-fits-all process.
