The Woods is a United Methodist Congregation. We believe... In the Triune God as revealed in the Biblical tradition. In the Holy Sciptures, Old and New Testaments (Most UMs do not read the Bible "literally") In two holy sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion In the unconditional love of God for all people. In welcoming all people of all ages, races, economic circumstances, status and background. In loving and serving God's world, through ministries of compassion and love. United Methodists are know for... Uniting a life of prayer with a life of service, outreach and justice. Welcoming and respecting Christians of different beliefs and worship practice. Focusing on GRACE rather than JUDGMENT. Understanding that we are called to deepen our faith throughout our lives.
