It’s been a great summer at Wooddale, but now it’s time to turn the page. As we head into fall, a whole new chapter of ministry begins as fall programming gets underway. Here are some of the highlights:

Every believer in Jesus Christ has at least one spiritual gift. The purpose of spiritual gifts is to build up the body of Christ (the Church) and to glorify God and make Him known. What are these spiritual gifts and how do you know which gift(s) you have?
The following list identifies and defines these gifts.
Stephen Ministry is a national program that equips laypeople to provide one-to-one Christian caregiving to people in our congregation and community. Twenty-eight Wooddalers participated in Stephen Ministry training this summer. They were commissioned as Stephen Ministers during the services the weekend of August 8-9.
As I look back on my life, I can see how God has always been gently guiding me and preparing my heart for missions – and more specifically, children’s ministry. As a young teen, I remember volunteering with the Wooddale VBS as a kindergarten small group leader. I had a wonderful time with the sweet little five-year-olds and I was sad to see the week end.
