IT’S OFFICIAL: The congregations of City On A Hill UMC and Woodstock UMC have overwhelmingly affirmed a merger of their congregations! This decision followed several months of prayer and discussion between both faith communities. It became clear that we could accomplish much more together than we could independently. In short, we are Better Together.
God has done amazing work through both church communities. As we look forward, we celebrate and commit to building upon our combined 140 years in mission and ministry to our Lord Jesus Christ and the Woodstock community.
Together, we recognize and affirm a common calling of fostering deep, fruitful Christian discipleship, passion for missional outreach, and a deep longing to reach those in the Woodstock and surrounding areas who don’t yet have a church home and are seeking a deeper relationship with Christ.
Stay tuned for additional information as our two church campuses move forward in this exciting journey.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20 ESV
