Porch Light  |  Meets on Monday Nights  |  6:30 pm | Glass Room

Many families in our church share the same private struggle: a child or loved one who has wandered from God and fallen into addiction or a pattern of poor choices. Porch Light, a care group that helps families navigate the chaos, was birthed by Brad and Lisa Hyde out of their own experience as parents of a child who struggles with addiction.

Porch Light is a ministry for the loved ones of those struggling with addictions. Whether a child, spouse, sibling, or parent: Porch Light is for any who are suffering along with their addicted loved one. We meet weekly on Mondays, and you are welcome anytime. No need to signup.

Helping Hands

Our Helping Hands special needs ministry is for persons with disabilities (babies through adulthood) and their families. It is our desire that people affected by disabilities and their families come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Just as God showed His great love and compassion, we want to follow our Lord’s example in reaching out to people who have disabilities.

Please take a look at the Helping Hands webpage for all the details.

At First Woodway, you’ll find a sense of family and belonging. We’d love to meet you.
