Deacon-led Ministry Teams

At Woodhaven, we believe that everyone can be a minister, in one way or another. Deacon-led ministry teams give children, teens and adults a variety of ways to use their skills and talents to serve others in our church family and in our community. You don’t need a special invitation to participate. Just jump in!

Family Connection Ministry Team

You are part of the Woodhaven family; let’s get connected! This ministry team helps to strengthen personal and productive communication between the members of Woodhaven and the church as a whole. We share not only information about church events and activities but also the needs, dreams and celebrations of the church family. This is a ministry of personal contact.
Deacon contacts: Annette Pridgen and Dennis de Jong

Love Meals Ministry Team

Do you have a desire to help people see God’s love through a simple act of kindness? The Love Meals Ministry coordinates opportunities to connect with and serve others in our church and community by providing ready-to-eat meals after a birth, loss, surgery, illness or other hardship. Deliver a meal or by prepare casseroles to freeze for the Love Meals Ministry, and share God’s love through the gift of food.
Deacon contacts: Jill Via and Cynthia Thelen

Prayer Ministry Team

The Prayer Ministry Team prays for the needs of individuals within the church and for Woodhaven Baptist Church as a whole. We also send prayer cards and personal notes to folks who need a little encouragement or sympathy.
Deacon contacts: Phyllis Sorensen and Charles Dail

Visitation Ministry Team

This ministry team makes personal contact with Woodhaven members and attendees who are hospitalized, dealing with a crisis in their lives (death of a loved one, job loss, etc.), or are homebound. Please contact one of us if you know of someone who needs a visit.
Our message is simple: We care about you. You are important to us and Woodhaven Baptist Church. This is the best kind of face time!
Deacon contact: Jim Carroll

Woodhaven Wheels Ministry Team

Everyone needs a lift now and then. Many people have physical or medical issues that make it difficult to drive to church, doctor’s appointments or other important events. Sometimes, the car might just break down. This team provides transportation to those who need it on a periodic basis. We want you to be with us and will help you get here—or wherever you need to be!
