DECEMBER OFFERING

DEAR WOODLANDS CHURCH FAMILY,

Chris and I and our family stepped out in faith to start Woodlands Church because we believed with all our hearts that the local Church is the hope of the world. Twenty-four years later we are more convinced than ever that the Church is the only hope for our hurting world.

When Christ ascended into heaven, He left the Holy Spirit to live in His followers, the body of Christ, the Church. We are His feet to walk to the hurting. We are His hands to reach out to the hopeless. We are His voice to lift up the way to Heaven to all who have lost their way.

We are so amazed at what God is doing to change thousands of lives through the body of Christ at Woodlands Church. We also believe that as we move into our twenty-fifth year that God is calling the church to step out more than ever to bring healing to this hurting world. The problems we face in our world today are heart problems and only Christ can change a heart. No government program, business innovation or educational program can change a human heart. That’s why the Church is the hope of the world!

The Heart for the House December offering is such a crucial way to let God use us to change hearts and lives. We encourage you to join our family in giving sacrificially to the Heart for the House offering as an expression of your love for Jesus and the body of Christ at Woodlands Church. When our hearts are aligned with God’s heart the Lord brings great blessing into our lives. We are praying for God’s blessing in your life this Christmas as you align your heart with Christ and we all give out of a Heart for the House of God.

The Church is the Hope of the World!

"…and upon this rock I will build my church; and the
gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

Matthew 16:18
