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!

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.
