Woodland Hills Church
I started attending Woodland Hills almost 24 years ago. Yes, I was a baby then! Well, not quite. You see, when I started at WHC, I had a baby. My baby was one year old at the time. We had been trying out churches for around 6 months, Woodland Hills was the first church where my baby would stay in the Nursery so I could attend church. This meant the world to me to have a place where I felt safe and my baby had fun.
It came time for us to volunteer and give back. I volunteered in the nursery and then at the check-in desk. I made hearts, oh yes, back when we had felt hearts for family numbers. I loved my time of volunteering so much that I applied to be on staff 11 years ago!
It is people like you who made all the difference in the world for me and my family. Volunteering is easy and we have so many different areas that you can jump into. If meeting new people and computers are your gig, we have our Welcome Team. If loving on kids is your thing, we have many opportunities. I am asking you to prayerfully consider whether God is asking you to be a part of Heroes Gate.
A Little Time, a Big Investment – Just think back in your life to the people who helped you grow in your faith, in your identity, and your giftings. You could be that person for a little one in Heroes Gate. Consider serving in HG this school year.
