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.
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.
The Wooddale Job Transition Support Group (JTSG) is one of the most highly respected job networking groups in the Twin Cities. Christians and non-believers, employed and unemployed alike; all are welcome to attend. The group meets each Monday on the Eden Prairie campus in Room 283 starting at 7:15 a.m. (accessible by Door 1).
Significant upgrades to the video equipment on both campuses will be taking place over the next few weeks. The purpose of these upgrades is to improve the worship experience and prepare for future multi-site ministry.
In some ways the Christian walk is simple and straight-forward. We are to a) love God and b) love people. We can love people with both our words and our actions. We can use words of kindness, encouragement and love. However, we are aware of the often-used phrase, “actions speak louder than words.” So how can we best use our actions to love others? One way to show love is through serving.
