“Making Change,” is not just about stewardship. It is about the many ways Jesus calls his followers to be a catalyst for positive change in the world. Woodlake has been making change right here in our community for the past 34-years through our missions and ministries.
Learn about the change Woodlake UMC has made in our community and beyond and our plans to make even more change in 2021-’22
We are asking you to contribute in two ways –
Operating Fund which includes worship, missions, discipleship and outreach
Building Fund which pays the mortgage on our church property.
Both are vitally important to the mission of our church. A small increase in each person’s giving can transform what our church is doing in Jesus’ name.
2021 Operating Fund goal - $1.68M makes it possible to "MAKE CHANGE" in these areas:
WORSHIP EXCELLENCE: More music and videos, higher quality production, expanded online ministry.
DISCIPLESHIP PATH: New curriculum and programs for adults, youth and children.
HEALTHY STAFF CULTURE: Cost of living increases for staff, hiring needed staff.
FINANCIAL HEALTH: Pay apportionments* (allows for the hiring of more pastors).
OUTREACH AND HOSPITALITY: Radical weekend hospitality, more community support/involvement.
2021 Building Fund goal - $400,000 makes it possible to pay down our loan faster.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
Reduces total interest payments over life of the loan.
Accelerates our capacity to reach more people by improving and expanding existing facilities.
* Apportionments are the share each local church pays their conference to support international, national and regional missions. Each church is assessed annually based on the size of their budget
