Moment for Mission: World Communion Sunday

Heifer International

Heifer International works to end hunger and poverty in partnership with the communities they serve. Their programs support entrepreneurs around the world, creating lasting change from the ground up. It begins with a seed investment of livestock or agriculture, followed by mentorship to help project participants build a business, and ultimately to gain access to supply chains and markets.

These families are able to earn a living income and continuously lift up their communities as they train the next generation of leaders. By supporting and training the world's farmers, ranchers, and female business owners, we're investing in a new breed of success.

Basket of Hope Todays Moment for Mission will Give a basket full of hope to a family in need. This gift includes rabbits and a starter flock of chickens, along with training and education on their care. These fast-multiplying animals will jumpstart families toward a sustainable future. Each $50 given will provide a basket of hope. Your gift today will go to help support these efforts.

Covid Precautions:

Facemasks are strongly encouraged for everyone in Woodlawn’s building, regardless of vaccination status. Masks may be lifted to eat or drink, but should not be removed. 

Screen/Media Volunteers needed for Contemporary Worship

Volunteers are urgently needed for the Contemporary worship service on Sundays. Volunteers would serve once a month, sitting in the tech booth and advancing the screens by computer.  It's as easy as pushing a space bar!  Training is available.

Sign up today in the church office to decorate a trunk. Want to be involved but don't have any decorations for a trunk? We can help! Our children's ministry has decorations/props from past events that we would be happy to loan, and which you can expand upon! We also welcome Halloween Candy donations for Trunk or Treat.  Fill our tub before October 24.   Join our team of organizers for this event by emailing Jenah Moody at

"Coffee's on Me!"

We often have flowers on the alter for Sunday’s service in honor of a special day, celebration of a person or in memory of a loved one. This signup sheet is available in the office and has many openings if you would like to purchase the alter flowers for either the traditional or the contemporary service.
There is now another option to celebrate with your Woodlawn family on Sunday mornings: “Coffee’s on me!” You can cover the cost of coffee Sunday morning to honor or celebrate an occasion. Coffee costs about $35 per Sunday. Signup is also available in the office.

Prayer Chain Note

Simply add as a safe sender and/or add to your contacts to insure you continue to receive the daily prayer email. This simple step will help prevent any service from blocking the email from reaching your inbox.
