“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16.

Community Life Ministries

Community Life at First Woodway means connecting ourselves to our community to develop relationships and opportunities to share Christ.  Like Christ, we are called to live out the incarnational life.  Just as Christ became man, we also go and act in such a way as to draw others to Him.  Come and be a part of what God wants to do through us in our community.

GO SOUTH TO THE ROAD

The idea “Go South to the Road” comes from the passage Acts 8:26-40.  “Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, ‘Go south to the road-the desert road-that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” Philip was compelled to go south to the road and there he met an Ethiopian Eunuch reading from the book of Isaiah.  Philip was able to explain to the man what the Scripture meant as well as about the good news about Jesus.  Later that day Philip baptized him. God has also called us to go south… and listen to the Spirit’s call and direction.  He leads us to different places, people, neighborhoods, homes, and settings to share Christ.  At First Woodway, we are ready to go wherever God sends us.  Whether it be all of the sudden or a well planned effort, we will join together to Go South to the Road.

Below are ways you can be involved in the community. Grab some First Woodway friends and find a place to serve together. For more details, click here.
