WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
The Woodside Church family is made up of young and old with a mixture of many different backgrounds. Dress tends to be business casual, but everyone is welcome in whatever attire they choose.
HOW LONG IS A WOODSIDE CHURCH SERVICE?
In total, a Woodside Church worship service is about seventy-five minutes in length. Service begins with a welcome from our Pastor, singing, reading of the Scripture, the Pastoral Prayer, and giving from our financial resources. Our Pastor preaches through a book of the Bible verse by verse and teaches how it applies to our lives today.
WANT A FEW MORE DETAILS?
Woodside is a church where the truth of Scripture matters. It's relaxed but focused. It's a place where we keep the worship service simple. Here's what you can expect in a typical worship service:
During our worship service, our worship team will lead us in a number of songs. Woodside aims to balance new music with some of the great hymns of the faith. Our music is a blend of old and new and is full of theological truth which turns us toward God and the exaltation of Christ.
One of the greatest privileges we have at Woodside is to worship God through the reading of His Word. We read from the Psalms and other Scriptures so that we saturate ourselves with the truth of Scripture. Because the truth matters, we make the reading of the Bible a very important part of our worship service.
Each week, Pastor Mark teaches verse by verse straight from the Bible in a way that is practical and challenging. If you do not have a Bible with you, we have extra Bibles in the back of the seats -- feel free to use one of ours. And if you don't own your own Bible, please take one of ours home with you as our gift to you.
At Woodside, we celebrate the Lord's Supper together as a way to remember and identify with the death of Jesus on the cross. We welcome all Christians who actively trust in Jesus for salvation and who are willing to turn from their sin to receive the Lord's Supper with us.
We pray together, with boldness and confidence, throughout our worship service. We believe that prayer is our lifeline so we pray often. If you would like to have someone pray for you, Pastor Mark would be honored to pray with you after the worship service. You'll find him and his wife in the back, waiting to serve you.
If you are our guest, please do not feel obligated to give anything financially -- instead, fill out a Connect Card and place that in the offering plate during the offering song. Our church family believes that we glorify God by giving as He leads us.
