On Sunday evening, April 28, a special meeting was called for all members of Wooddale Church to vote on affirmation of the elders' recommendation to call Dale Hummel as Wooddale Church's next senior pastor. The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of this recommendation. Church Chair and Search Committee Chair Pat Mazorol said, "Months of prayers by Wooddalers were answered with the strong, unifying affirmation of Dale Hummel as Wooddale's next senior pastor."
Since The Table, a Wooddale social website launched in February, more than 700 Wooddalers have found a place there. They have shared more than 120 prayer requests, created 32 groups and posted several items in the “Serve” section.
In today’s culture, we’re conditioned to be proud of our accomplishments and to look out for ourselves because no one else will. After all, we’re created in the image of God so don’t we have a lot to be proud of? Perhaps so, but God’s Word and Jesus’ life on earth clearly emphasizes a different attitude.
The Bible is the world’s best, most complete instruction manual. There are instructions for dealing with the full range of human experiences and emotions. The Bible is also a detailed letter from God to you. If you have difficulty understanding the instructions or the thoughts expressed in the Bible, Wooddale’s One-to-One Mentoring Ministry can help.
The traditional start to the summer camping season is almost here. The Father & Son Camp-in takes place on the Eden Prairie campus beginning Friday, May 31 at 6 p.m. Neither rain, nor snow, heat nor cold, mosquitos nor wild animals will put a damper on this fun memory-maker for dads and their young sons because it’s an indoor camp-in.
Do you ever view prayer as a chore you have to do or an activity to be checked off on your “to do” list? Do you sometimes find yourself on a sabbatical from praying? Do you ever say things like this to yourself? “I’m off track; I need to get back to my prayer life.” Have you ever felt frustrated because you think God doesn’t hear or answer your prayers?
When you are looking for ways to bless others, use your talents for God or just meet others, the Wooddale WEEK lists many opportunities each week. The Billboard page insert has a section titled, “Got Service?” that lists opportunities for you to volunteer your time, yourself or your stuff.
