What do you have to do to achieve greatness? Jesus instructed his disciples on this very subject in the New Testament book of Matthew. In chapter 20, he gave them some puzzling advice.

Pastor Dale continues to encourage us to pray for, and share the Gospel with, seven people in our lives. Praying and being an example are significant ways for God to use us to bring others to Christ.

The end of the year is coming fast and it’s time to think about year-end giving. Giving to Wooddale Church is easy and quick. There are kiosks located by Doors 1 and 2 on the Eden Prairie campus where you can use either your credit card or debit card to make a donation.
Wooddale services frequently include a FaithStory from a Wooddaler. These stories are narratives of his or her walk with God, telling how they discovered God’s purpose for them, how God intervened when they were down or how he found them when they had yet to know him. By hearing the development of their faith, our faith grows as well.
One of the big movie releases during December is Exodus: Gods and Kings. This movie is a recounting of the story of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. The December sermon series will look at the parallels between the true story of the Exodus and the coming of Christ at Christmas.
