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.)



--- 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.

Gather together around the table with us for warm fellowship and thankful hearts! Our Joy of the Harvest worship service, meal and global hunger offering collection will be on Sunday, Nov. 18, at 6:00 p.m. Our menu will be corn chowder or vegetable beef soup, ham or turkey sandwich, salad and banana split dessert. There is no charge for the meal. Please sign up on Realm or on the communication card in the Sunday bulletin. We hope you’ll come… and bring guests!
Our global hunger offering will be collected on Sunday, Nov. 18. Bring your “bread bank” or other donations to Sunday morning worship or to the Joy of the Harvest celebration that evening. As has been our practice for years, Woodhaven’s Hunger Offering is distributed as follows: 75% goes to the Hunger Fund of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of North Carolina (state hunger relief), and 25% goes to the Hunger Emphasis of Baptist World Aid (global hunger relief). Each of these funds applies 100% of all donations to hunger relief.

Growing Young & Growing Close

Growing Young and Growing Close is an all-hands-on-deck kind of study! If you’re interested in what a variety of churches across the country are doing to attract and engage young people ages 15 – 29, join us for this fascinating study of church health, generational connections, and Jesus — the center of it all.
David Abercrombie, Mike Davis and Doug Smith will lead us through six weeks of good news about who we are as a community of believers and how we can use what the latest research shows to strengthen Woodhaven’s commitment to living the irresistible life in Christ.
See you at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays, beginning Oct. 17! Are you coming?
