CONNECT & CONTRIBUTE
Getting connected takes courage. Let us help you take the first step! Our volunteers at Connect Central are excited to meet you after today’s service. Joining a Christ-centered community is a great way to grow in your faith and be an encouragement to others. Come find out how your kids can plug into student ministries. If you’re looking for a place to use your talents and serve in ministry we’d be happy to point you in the right direction. If you’ve been around Woodmen for a while we’d love to connect with you. If you’re new, learn what we’re all about and receive a free welcome gift from our team. Come say, Hello!
GIVING WITH GRATITUDE
At Woodmen we believe that God is the giver of every good thing. It is our great privilege to respond by giving back what He first gave us. Stewarding our finances comes not from a sense of obligation or burden, but out of our hearts filled with generosity and gratitude. We believe that Colorado Springs and the world will come to know Jesus through the multiplication of our gifts. Your giving lays a solid foundation to sustain the ongoing work of ministry. If you’re ready to contribute financially to the ways that God is moving through our church family, you can give as the offering bucket is passed during the service or you can give online RIGHT HERE.
Welcome to church, we’re so excited to have you with us! This weekend, on Sunday June 13 at 11 AM, you’re invited to join with others who are new to Woodmen and meet your campus pastor and other leaders.
