 Sunday Mornings

Livestream or on campus @ 8:45 am or 11:11 am
During this season, if you are not able to join us on campus then we invite you to join us through the livestream of our Sunday morning service. You can find the livestream on the First Woodway Facebook page, the app, or on this site.  Come worship with us!

Due to the current pandemic, all of our previous events have been cancelled.  However, we still have two weekly opportunities for you to connect via Zoom.

Prayer Gathering – Monday @ 12:30pm
Every week we gather for a prayer meeting on Zoom to start off the week.  It’s one of the most refreshing and powerful things we do in our week.  We invite you to join us.  Due to security issues, the link is not public.  The best way to gain access to the Zoom room is through messaging your CG leaders or by direct messaging one of our social media accounts.

Community Groups
We have community groups that are meeting throughout the week on Zoom.  Come connect with other students, study the scriptures, and pray for one another.  We would love for you to join one. Click on the Community Groups Tab above to find more information.  If you’re interested in receiving help in joining a group, email Will Bowden.

Community Groups
meet throughout the week Zoom.  There is around 12-25 students in each group.  Each group is led by two college students.  This is where everything happens for us.  We hope you join a group or even start one! The best way to attend a group is to shoot one of the leaders a text to let them know you are coming, and then show up.  If you want recommendations on a group or need help joining one, then email Will.

DEVO is usually our Tuesday worship gathering, but due to the pandemic, we will not be meeting for the rest of the semester.  However, there is still weekly teaching that is posted on the DEVO podcast.  We hope that you’ll follow along with us as we explore the scriptures!
