Who we are
We are a Roof Digging Church
Follows Jesus. Loves all people. Impacts the community.
In the book of Mark, we learn of four men who knew Jesus was a healer. So, they did all they could to get a paralyzed man to His feet so the man could walk again. They let nothing stop them. Not his unwieldy weight. Not the weather. Not the long walk. Not taking time away from family and work. Not an impassable crowd. Not even a roof.
At Woodlake UMC, we strive to be like those four men. We want to make the love of Jesus accessible to our church body, to Chesterfield County and beyond.
