Deacon Led-Ministries

Deacon-Led Ministry Teams

Jesus said that those who want to be great must seek to serve others and that he himself came not to be served but to serve (Mark 10:42-45). Understanding this teaching, the early church established the office of "deacon" which literally means "servant". Deacons are called to be model servants in a congregation of servants who follow the servant named Jesus.

   At Woodhaven, deacons carry out their servant ministry by organizing gift-based teams, allowing not just deacons but all who are willing to engage in Christ's path of greatness by serving others in his name. We'd love to share with you more about deacon-lead ministry teams.

Growing Young Ministry Team

Woodhaven is a faith community that believes all healthy churches will have members of all age spectrums engaged in authentic relationships in accepting and inclusive environments. We desire to connect to discover joy and meaning while learning, living, and serving for Christ.

Love Meals Ministry Team

The Love Meals Ministry provides our Woodhaven family an opportunity to connect with and serve others in our church and community by providing ready-to-eat meals after a birth, loss, surgery, or illness. This ministry operates by volunteers with that same passion.

Prayer Ministry Team

Prayer is the method by which we build a relationship with God through offering praise and thanks to Him, requesting help for ourselves and others, and, more importantly, listening for God’s direction.  Following the instruction of I Thessalonians 5:17 to “pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances,” the Prayer Ministry Team sponsors prayer activities throughout the year such as praying for specific families during a dedicated time, sending notes of prayer to those who are in need, or coordinating prayer partners and vigils.

Family Connection Ministry Team

At Woodhaven we want to invite and encourage each person who walks through our doors to become a fellow friend and family member in the body of Christ.  This ministry team serves to do just that by promoting opportunities to build more personal and productive communication channels between the members of Woodhaven and the church.

Visitation Ministry Team

This ministry team serves to make personal contact with Woodhaven members and attendees who are hospitalized, dealing with a crisis in their life (death of a loved one, job loss, etc.), or are homebound.  Members of this team reach out through personal visits to offer comfort and encouragement.

Woodhaven Wheels Ministry Team

Many people have physical or medical issues that make it difficult to drive to church, doctor’s appointments, or other important events. This team provides alternative transportation to those who need it on a periodic basis.
