Welcome to Wednesdays at Woody’s! Each Wednesday night from September through May, Woodhaven offers a chance to dig into spiritual questions with short-term book studies and Bible-based discussion groups. It’s a chance to share joyful moments and concerns and pray together.
We feel that this face-to-face time for reflection and fellowship is an important investment each week – to connect more closely with Christ and each other. Discipleship programs are available for children and youth, and preschool activities and nursery care are also offered, so bring the whole family. Friends and community members are welcomed!
Feeling musical? We’re saving a seat for you on Wednesday nights in Preschool Music, Ways to Praise (children’s music) and the Worship Choir (adults of all ages, youth and up). No auditions or musical experience is required. Just come on and make some joyful noise!

6:00 – 6:45 p.m. 
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, who is 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.

Shalom Church

Led by Dr. David Stratton

Wednesdays, Sept. 12 – Dec. 5 6:50 – 7:35 p.m.
What is the church for? Too often, the church is defined in terms of what it’s against. In Shalom Church, we will explore a constructive vision of church life by examining four classical marks of the church’s mission.
This will be a Bible study – we will look at the biblical basis for each of these marks. But it will also be a practical study – we will look at specific ways to implement a Bible-based, positive ideal for the church. What is church supposed to be about? How is Woodhaven doing in living out the four marks of church life?
Come and learn not only how the church can better enrich your own life but also how the church can and should enrich our world.

Cultivating Peace

Led by David Abercrombie

7 Wednesdays, March 13 – May 1 (No session on April 17)
The peace of Christ can suddenly come into any life situation. When we least expect it, peace can be the miracle we didn’t even know we needed. Yet God invites us to ask much more of HIm. At Woodhaven, we are asking God to make us so filled with the peace of Christ that the tasks of our daily living cannot be separated from the beauty of predictable, consistent, even mundane peace.
To do that, we have a role, as well. We can do practical things that allow God to grow and transform us so that cultivating peace becomes central to our lives. Woodhaven has adopted 10 essential skills and habits that prepare us for a life of Christian growth. We call them “The Big 10.” Come learn about them and cultivate big, everyday peace… in small, everyday ways. This is the irresistible life in Christ.
