He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water ... his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Psalms 1:3
Our Teaching & Activities
"...[Teach] them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age..." (Matthew 28:20)
Our Approach to Teaching & Activities
At Woodland Park, we believe that every activity is an opportunity to teach others. As such, the bulk of our activities/ministry work relates to sharing the good news of the Gospel and showing members and visitors how to apply Biblical principles to their daily lives. Each activity directly ties to the work of the Church --- evangelism, edification, and/or benevolence.
