Woodland partners with Iglesia Bautista Emanuel in Laredo with a focus on learning from each other while doing missions. We have sent Woodland members to Laredo several times and Emanuel has sent members to Woodland a few times as well.
Christmas in the Barrio
Last year, we helped Emanuel Baptist with this incredible event! We produced about 90 pizzas! Helped 3 groups of children and adults enacting the nativity, spreading the good news of the birth of our savior and Lord, some of those kids had no idea who Jesus was (Ben talked with several of them), and handed out gifts that mattered to them… we saw many giant smiles!
This year, we go December 10, 9:00 am – 8:30 pm. We will be helping Emanuel Baptist and all their home churches in celebrating Christmas at the Villa del Rio apartments. We will assist with crafts, making and serving pizzas, give-a-ways, and sharing the Christmas story. You and your family plan to join us this year in Laredo! Sign up below.
