Be our guest so you can experience and discover Wooddale. Be part of a worship service, stop by the Guest Center, get a coffee and a roll and tell us a little about yourself. We would love to learn your name and a bit of your story and answer your questions.
Part of Wooddale’s Vision 2022 is to pray, serve, and share Jesus with seven others in our network of relationships (Adopt 7). While all three parts of this vision are important, let’s look at the “serve” part. What does it mean to serve others?
“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” is affirmed at each Wooddale Men’s Breakfast. Each Men’s Breakfast begins with a hearty meal prepared by Chef José. There are usually eggs in some fashion, bacon and/or sausage, fruit and some sort of baked or fried item (pancakes, French toast, pastries, etc.) along with juice and coffee. And there’s plenty of food for everyone.
On July 16, 1999, John F. Kennedy, Jr. died when the Piper Saratoga light aircraft he was piloting crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. His wife, Carolyn Bessette, and sister-in-law, Lauren Bessette, were also killed. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) determined that the probable cause of the crash was pilot error.
In July, a team of six Minnesotans, including two Wooddalers, went to serve in Bulgaria for ten days. Karen Eilers and Emily Manno joined four others from New Hope Church and Valley Free Church on a team organized by the MCEE, the Minnesota Coalition for Eastern Europe. Their mission? To teach at a Cru summer camp for Bulgarian college students.
