We want to glorify God, His son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit in everything we do.

Woodhaven is a place where many doors are always open, where you can explore the seemingly simple idea of living with the joy of Christ in our lives. You’re welcome to worship, grow, serve and fellowship with us!

Gather with us on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. as we “seek God’s face” as reflected in the beautiful words from Hebrews 12:28: “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe.”   



No matter how young or how old, we all have room to grow in love and learn from the life and ministry of Jesus. Let’s grow up together!


From its beginnings, Woodhaven has encouraged people of all ages to follow Jesus’ example to be ministers to one another, to our community and to our world. How will you serve?



--- Our Pastor


Dave Stratton is pastor of Woodhaven Baptist Church.

“Love God. Love each other.”

When you boil it all down, it’s a pretty simple recipe for irresistible life. Our goal at Woodhaven is to offer you ample opportunities to get to know God and each other a little better. You’re welcomed to join us in that pursuit! (By the way, you’ll find the “recipe” in Matthew 22:36-40.)

Woodhaven's youth and parents serve a hot, homemade breakfast to homeless in Raleigh.
Ever thought of yourself as a minister? It might sound exciting or a little scary. At Woodhaven, we believe that all members can be ministers. Talk with us about ways that you’d like to grow and serve in the spirit of Christ.

Lead Me to the Cross

Jesus Sculpture
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 weekdays leading up to Easter. Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebration of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians follow Jesus’ pattern of fasting and reflection in the desert for 40 days.
Fasting is a common Lenten discipline due to Jesus’ example in the desert and in recognition of the instructions on fasting that Jesus relayed to His followers (e.g., Matthew 6:16-18). Whereas Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus after His death on the cross, Lent recalls the events leading up to and including Jesus’ crucifixion.
Observing a period of reflection in preparation for our remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice for us on Good Friday is certainly an appropriate Christian practice. Woodhaven has printed some copies of the Lenten Devotional Guide prepared by students of Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary. They’re available in the lobby outside the sanctuary. If you prefer to read online, you can download the guide here.

If you can measure, scoop, label or assemble boxes, there’s a job for you! This is a great service activity for friends, neighbors and school-aged children.
Meal assembly begins at 10:00 a.m. After the meal packing, we’ll head to the Fellowship Hall for a barbecue lunch. We should wrap up around noon.
