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?

“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

Woodhaven's youth and parents serve a hot, homemade breakfast to homeless in Raleigh.
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.

Easter Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary. The service will include our adult choir and brass ensemble. Childcare is provided for infants through third graders. Everyone is welcomed!

Cover It Is Finished Musical

Maundy Thursday Tenebrae Service

Cover It Is Finished Musical
This Holy Week, come join our Worship Choir as they present Mary McDonald’s powerful work, “It Is Finished,” in collaboration with the Joy Paige Dance Company of Cary. This beautiful musical work will be choreographed by Sarah Otto from the Graceful Expressions Dance Company in Cary.
This worship experience will be on Thursday, April 18, at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary at Woodhaven, 4000 Kildaire Farm Road in Apex. Community members, guests and friends are welcomed.
Tenebrae is a special service for Holy Week that is held on any of the three days prior to Easter: Wednesday, Maundy Thursday or Good Friday. Tenebrae comes from Latin meaning “shadows” or “darkness.” The service makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through his burial.
This increasing darkness foreshadows Jesus’ approaching death and of the hopelessness that will be in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness with worshipers leaving in silence to ponder the impact of Christ’s death and to await the coming Resurrection. Come, worship with us as we experience Christ’s journey to the cross through music and interpretive dance!


Kids’ Palm Sunday Celebration

Calling all children and preschoolers! It’s time to mark your calendars. (Do preschoolers really have calendars these days?) We’ll have our Children’s Palm Sunday Celebration for 1st-6th graders and an Easter Egg Hunt for preschoolers-Kindergarteners on Palm Sunday, April 14, following worship. Families will meet in the Fellowship Hall for a pizza lunch followed by an Easter egg hunt for the younger kids or fun activities to learn about Holy Week for our older children. RSVP to emily@woodhaven.org.
