Message from Pastor Dale

In response to the recent ruling on abortion, it’s important we show compassion and care—especially toward women who are feeling vulnerable or who may be struggling with an unwanted pregnancy. We must do more than pray and verbally advocate for the sanctity of life.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. -2 Corinthians 1:3-4

There are many good alternatives for women and men when it comes to protecting life. Please take note of these options should you or someone you know need help.

At Wooddale, we have a ministry called Stephen Ministries. When you need extra support, Stephen ministers are trained to provide emotional and spiritual care for anyone facing a crisis or difficult circumstance in life. Through confidential one-on-one times of conversation, prayer and encouragement, Stephen ministers support you in these defining moments of life. If you need help, email

Wooddale also partners with New Life Family Services. At New Life Family Services, they believe each person should have the ability to receive physical, emotional and spiritual support as they face pregnancy-related situations and circumstances. They’ll walk beside you, offering love and support to make informed and educated decisions in your time of crisis and need. Through this care, they’re seeing God change hearts, save lives, build families and restore hope. To learn more about their pregnancy care, adoption services, post-abortion care and more, visit
