Our Services

What are services like?
The 9 AM worship is more traditional with hymns and traditional liturgy with bulletin. The 11 AM worship is what we call "blended". Altought not "contemporary" with a praise band and big screen, there is less formal liturgy, we sing contemporary worship songs and have Worship and Song Sheets instead of a traditional bulletin.

What is the community like?
Our community is multigenerational--some people having been active in this church for over 50 years, and others just joining us within the last couple years. The people are friendly--and not just with each other--but WELCOME newcomers...not just on Sunday mornings, but actively invite newer people to participate in the life of the church. There is always something going on!

What if I'm not a Christian?
Then this is the place for you. We welcome seekers! If you are considering a church and don't want to be "pressured" into anything and yet want to learn and participate as little or as much as you want to, then this church family will make you feel right at home. We believe the journey of faith is just that--a journey, and it would be our honor to be a part of yours.

Leadership View all

Deb Hoffman

After working in the Restaurant Business for 12 years and Corporate America for another 12, God led me into ministry. I graduated from Moravian Theological Seminary, Bethlehem, PA in 2007. I served as Student Pastor and then Associate Pastor at Effort UMC until 2010 when I was appointed to Wooddale UMC, where I continue to serve. In addition to the ministry, the Lord has blessed me with my husband Warren, my two grown daughters Steph and Sarah and my granddaughter, Mattea Ruth. God has also given me the gift of singing and songwriting and Wooddale UMC supported the making of a CD of original Christian songs this year.
