Come out to see all the exciting new things happening at Woods Church at Kick-Off Sunday on September 11 at 12:15 p.m. immediately following the 11:00 a.m. service. The theme for the year is “What’s the Word?”
There will be an outdoor picnic with food, music, a moon bounce, ice cream, and cotton candy for everyone to enjoy! Don’t miss presentations by the ministries at 12:15 p.m. where we get to meet the head of that ministry and hear their “word” for the year – not to mention each ministry will have its own station on the Woods campus where you can find out what they are all about and all the opportunities to get involved.
New to Kick-Off Sunday this year is the Woods Walk! It’s a chance to explore the Woods Church campus with a guided map that takes you through the spiritual and environmental highlights that the property offers. Special for the kids, there will be chipmunks hiding all along the Woods Walk for them to find – “Pokemunk” (the chipmunk scavenger hunt) will start at 1:30 p.m. and the winners of the hunt will be announced at 2:00 p.m. The final stop on the Woods Walk will be the completed Labyrinth located alongside the Counseling and Care Center – it’s an exciting new addition to Woods and we can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself!
In order for all of this to happen we need your help. Please volunteer for a 30 minute shift, at the “Kick-off Sunday Picnic” on September 11 from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. We need you to set up, serve food, and clean up. Sign-up in Fellowship Hall on Sunday, September 4.
