The Worship and Creative ministry exists to create atmospheres of worship where people can connect with God with as little distraction as possible. We understand that there is nothing we can do to change the human heart, so we are completely dependent on the Holy Spirit. Through powerful music, passionate singing, and excellent production we offer our very best gifts to partner with the Spirit in leading others to life-giving encounters with God.
There are many ways to get involved in our Kids Ministry- from caring for the babies in the nursery to being a small group leader for our elementary students. We have opportunities to help in tech during our large group lessons as well as helping with greeting in our Kids Check-in area. Volunteers will be background checked and trained by our staff. No experience necessary.
Our Element Student Ministries Team is the perfect place for anyone who has a heart and a desire to pour into the next generation. Whether its leading or co-leading one of our student small groups, pitching in at our weekly Element services through technical support or stocking our snack shop, to serving at one of our fundraisers, the Element Team is a great opportunity to help students (Junior High and High School aged) encounter and engage God.
Guest Services: At The Woods Church our goal is to make sure that no one gets lost in the crowd at our church. Our Guest Services Team has been designed to help both the regular attender and first time guests connect to the life of The Woods Church. Whether it is a friendly face at Guest Central or smiling Connection Kiosk Team, the Guest Services Team is here to ensure everyone has a great experience.
Hospitality Team: OurHospitality Team includes parking lot attendants that can direct you during special events, greeters that meet you with a smile at the doors, our ushers who distribute bulletins and collect our weekly offering, and a group of volunteers that deliver welcome baskets to first time guests.
Our Prayer Team members have a heart for prayer, our church, and seeing God move. Prayer isn't rocket science, it should be simple, but it has the power to move the kingdom of heaven. These team members pray over each Sunday service, as well as be available after services to intercede for those people who desire one-on-one prayer.
Members of the Discipleship Team have a heart to see people grow in their relationship with Christ and connect in community with others. This team consists of Group Leaders, Class Teachers, and Hosts for discipleship events.
Remembering Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross through the act of communion is an important part of services. On a monthly basis this team helps to prepare and distribute the elements during our time of communion.
Safety is a huge priority at all of our campuses. We have men and women that serve as a part of our Emergency Response Team (ERT), ensuring the safety of our kids and families. Our ERT is active at each service and special event that The Woods Church hosts.
