Wednesdays at Woodhaven

New classes begin Sept. 6

Keep on track with discipleship and fellowship for all ages. Wednesdays at Woodhaven.

Woodhaven brings adults an opportunity each Wednesday night to dig into spiritual questions and
life-application studies. Short-term studies of books and Bible passages offer a chance to push pause on
our busy lives to explore ways we can follow Christ more closely. 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
with one another.

Discipleship programs are available for children of all ages and youth, so bring the whole family. Friends and community members are welcomed, too!


Join us for dinner, too!

De-stress before class each Wednesday. We’ll do the cooking for you and your family! We offer extended, continuous dinner service from 5:20 - 6:15 p.m. to allow folks to round up the kids and wrestle with rush hour. Patrick Hurley will be returning as our chef. Reservations are due by 5:00 p.m. on the Monday prior to the meal. 

  • Adults: $6.00
  • Children ages 3 - 13: $4.00
  • Children under age 3: Free
  • Family Maximum: $16.00

Just need a quiet place to pray, reflect and allow

it. Please enter and exit quietly and respectfully
of others who are gathered here.

Make a joyful noise with the Adult Choir!

No auditions needed, and no special invitation required!

Join us on Wednesdays from 6:45 - 7:45 p.m. in the Music Suite (downstairs from the Sanctuary). We share our voices, and we also share laughter and life's concerns. Why not give us a try? 

Need more information or a little encouragement? Please contact Stephanie de Jong, our Minister of Music.

CLASS 1 CHOICES (6:00 - 6:45 PM)

Philippians - Discovering True Joy
Led by David Abercrombie
Sept. 6 - Oct. 11 

6:00 - 6:45 p.m.
Text - Bible (Acts & Philippians)
Multi-purpose Room (in the Preschool Building)

Join us for a 6-week exploration of one of Paul's most gracious and affectionate letters. In this letter of thanks – written from prison to a church he and Timothy started 10 years earlier – Paul uses the words "joy" and "rejoice" 16 times. But what he describes as joy is unlike anything most people would expect. Paul describes a notion of joy completely independent of personal circumstances. How does that feel?


Trendy Topics

Oct. 18 - Nov. 29 

6:00 - 6:45 p.m.
Text - Bible and handouts
Multi-purpose Room (in the Preschool Building)

In this 6-week session, we'll examine a variety of trendy cultural topics. We'll focus on how to approach spiritual decision-making in light of our Baptist heritage of the "priesthood of the believer." Topics include:

  • What's Trending?
  • Science and Religion
  • Born This Way
  • Fake News
  • Be Whose You Are
  • Marching For Justice 

Free to Lean: Making Peace with Your Lopsided Life
Led by Terri Stratton
Sept. 6 - Nov. 29 
6:00 - 6:45 p.m.
Text - Free to Lean: Making Peace by Jocelyn Green
Welcome Room (across from the Sanctuary)

Do you feel like you have a lopsided life? Good. You're normal!

Instead of constantly trying to "fix" our lives by achieving some perfect balance that doesn't exist, let's dump the guilt and admit that we need to lean into God. His perfect plan for us includes seasons of life when we may be more focused on caring for our children or our elderly parents, working to pay the bills, or volunteering at church. Free to Lean gives you permission to recognize the season you're in and live in harmony with it.

 

CLASS 2 CHOICES (6:50 - 7:35 PM)

Talking About Jesus
Led by David Stratton
Sept. 6 - Oct. 11
6:50 - 7:35
p.m.
Multi-purpose Room 

We all know that Jesus told His followers to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8). Yet, while many Christians are somewhat comfortable inviting people to church, they are far less comfortable – even fearful – of talking to others about Jesus outside of church. What if I get something wrong about Him? What if I can't answer questions that arise? This class is designed to foster the joy of increasing confidence in talking to others about Jesus.

 
Seeds of Joy
Led by David Stratton
Oct. 18 - Nov. 29
6:50 - 7:35 p.m. 
 

Text - The Reformation: A Very Short Introduction by Peter Marshall
Multi-purpose Room (in the Preschool Building)

What does an event of 500 years ago have to do with us? According to an old tradition, on Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints' church in Wittenberg (modern day Germany) and ushered in the Protestant Reformation. 

This was a seismic event, which began as an argument over what people must do to be saved and rapidly engulfed society in a series of fundamental changes that still influence our lives today. Join us as we consider the joy of being part of a church family and the seeds of that joy in history.
