Worship Service, 9:00 am
College Hour, 10:30 am [MAC A200]



The college ministry exists to engage college students with the gospel in a community where we are being challenged to grow through discipleship and are being equipped to serve in God’s mission for His glory.

Engage. Grow. Serve.

Ministry Teams
There are several ministry teams that college students can serve in. All of these teams are student-led. We believe that serving in the church is crucial to actually being a part of the church. We want to see what skills/passions God has gifted you with, and provide a space for you to use them.  There are currently several different teams.

–       Media Team
–       College Childcare Team
–       Service Team
–       Set Up & Events Team
–       Worship Team
–       Barnabas (Encouragement) Team
–       Creative Team

If there is a team that you are interested in serving in, or if just you would like to sit down and discuss with us about your passions then contact Emily Sedate for more information.

The other place we need students to serve is within our Missional Communities, and Discipleship Groups. All of our students should strive to be a part of a Missional community, and discipleship group.  These groups are led by students, and take place in First Woodway homes. If you are a family interested in hosting a Missional Community, or a student interested in taking part in leading then contact Case Smith for more information.

Adopt – A – College Student

Find a family at First Woodway to call your “home away from home”

As an adoptive student you benefit from:

-having someone just a phone call away

You will also be expected to:
-pray for your family
-be active and supportive in the lives of your family
-find ways to serve and thank your family
-be committed to and consistent at First Woodway

If you can fulfill what is expected & would like to be a part of the benefits? Sign up Here!

What happens next after I sign up?
1.  We will contact you September 21st with more details
2.  Matching Sunday will be on September 25th

Note:  some families may not receive a student.  Due to the pairing process and the number of adopted parents, not all preferences may be met.
