"Bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ." Gal. 6:2

We strive to meet individual needs through relationships with others in Life Groups and various ministries and events. When additional care is required, the Care and Support Teams can address unique life circumstances.

Woodlands Care team

The Care Team is a group of Woodlands Church members and regular attendees whose primary purpose is to lift up in prayer the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the church family. The team includes representatives from the pastoral staff and members of the congregation who adhere to a strict confidentiality code.  The team gathers weekly to review prayer requests, pray together as a team and consider ways to encourage those in our church with various needs and concerns. If you have a current prayer request that you wish to convey, you may submit your request online. 

The Care Team also explores other ways in which care needs can be made known, as well as other resources that might be useful in helping those in our church family. Recommendations about how to improve communication of needs as well as additional helping resources are welcome.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

STEPHEN MINISTRY

One element of congregational care at Woodlands Church is Stephen Ministry.  Stephen Ministry offers lay Christian care to hurting individuals in our congregation and community.  This ministry reflects the true nature of the church, by obeying Christ's command to "love one another".  Our desire is to help you experience God's love and care as we walk with you through a difficult time.  The core purpose of this ministry is summed up in the words of Paul in his letter to the Ephesians. "To equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12-13).

COUNSELING REFERRALS

When we have emotional needs, we can usually lean on family members, friends, or members of our Life Group.  Occasionally, however, problems can become more complicated and difficult and we may need the help of a professional.  If that time comes, Woodlands Church has three Christian counselors who are members of our church family and are ready to help.
