“Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, ‘Go south to the road-the desert road-that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” Acts 8:26

Go South to the Road – United States

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.

2018 RECAP FROM SUMMER FAMILY TRIPS

Oklahoma City, OKC Recap – June 2018
What a blessing it was for the First Woodway team to serve and care for FBC-OKC this past weekend. We worked around their facility cleaning, painting, and working on their landscaping around the building. We had a chance to laugh and cry with them, pray and worship with them, and encourage and build the body of Christ. What a blessing to go and serve and give of ourselves to strengthen the church.
