---Welcome!

 

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!

 Worship

 

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.”   
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Grow

 

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!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Serve

 

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.)
 

 

 

--- We’re all Ministers

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.

Come Aboard for VBS!

Floor to ceiling tree made from carpet rolls

Our tropical transformation is underway… It’s almost time for VBS! This year’s theme, “Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus,”  will help kids learn that Jesus rescues us when we’re lonely, worried, struggling, do wrong, and feel powerless. 

 
Join us Sunday, June 24 – Thursday, June 28, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Woodhaven. Vacation Bible School is free and open to the community, so bring friends and invite your neighbors! Register for VBS here. 
 
Woodhaven’s adult crew leaders will guide children ages 3-12 in music, Bible stories, Imagination Station (where they’ll receive fun science-y gizmos that illustrate the daily Bible point), Shipwrecked Games, and KidVid Cinema (where they’ll see modern day kids apply the Bible point to their lives). Even the snack each night will be Shipwrecked-flavored!
 
Speaking of food… All families are invited to join us for dinner each night from 5:15 – 6:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Dinner is $3/person, and reservations are required. (Sunday – Pizza, salad and fruit, Monday – Hamburger, fries, salad and fruit, Tuesday – Spaghetti, salad and fruit, Wednesday – Taco bar, salad and fruit, Thursday – Hot dog, chips, dessert and fruit) Sign up for VBS meals below.
 
Don’t miss the boat!
