At Woodland it is our desire for every member to be involved in the ministry of the church. To accomplish this, the church is served by twelve committees, and there are ministry teams that are linked to these committees. Committees are filled each year by members who are selected by the Committee on Committees to serve three‑year terms. The ministry opportunities are more fluid, and members may volunteer to serve on them throughout the year.
“Every member a minister” has been a catch phrase at Woodland since its beginning nearly 21 years ago. The church’s structure of Committees and Special Ministries provides many opportunities for the fulfillment of this maxim.
The work of our committees is broad in scope. The focus is on planning, organizing and implementing a full church program.
- Committee chairs report to the Church Council on their committees’ activities,
- The Church Council is made up of the chairs of Building & Grounds Committee, Finance & Stewardship Committee, the Personnel Committee and 4 at-large members (and the senior pastor as a non-voting ex-officio member). They take care of the administrative taskes of the church, approving all business to be sent to the general membership for voting.
- There are approximately 100 church members serving on committees
- Find each committee’s job description below.
We have many ministries at Woodland, each of which falls under the umbrella of one of the 12 committees and keeps its “parent” committee informed of its activities.
