As for those who in the present age are rich, command them not to be haughty, or to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but rather on God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life. (The Holy Bible: New Revised Standard Version. 1989. 1 Ti 6:17–19. Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers.)
As Woodland enters 2016, we are turning our focus to the foundations that have been laid and those that are yet to be made. We recognize that we can “take hold of the life that really is life” at the same time that we are laying “the treasure of a good foundation for the future.” We will seek to apply that motive and direction to all of the things that we do as a congregation. Through Jesus Christ, we want to lay a foundation in our personal lives and for our church that will ensure a good future. We hope that you will join us as we explore, firm up and construct a good foundation for the future.
