The purpose of Wooddale Church is to honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ.
The women of Wooddale Church are diverse – single, married, career-oriented, family-focused, young, middle-aged, senior-aged. They are at different points in their spiritual walks. And that’s why Wooddale Church’s ministries for women are so varied, with offerings for just about everyone seeking to grow in her relationship with God. We offer classes, events and opportunities that challenge women to be strong disciples of Christ, to become leaders in ministry and to pass on their faith to others. If you have questions about any of the opportunities listed here, please call Wooddale Women’s Ministries, 952-944-6300.
