Elevate Begins Saturday Nights At Woodland Park

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Elevate is an exciting new gathering on Saturday nights at Woodland Park Baptist Church, 6735 Standifer Gap Road,  which brings together a challenging and insightful talk from God’s word, extravagant worship and a generation excited about Jesus and committed to making His name and His renown famous in our city and around the world. Anchor Series sessions will ne Feb. 15 and March 15 from 5 to 6:30 p.


Come together to trade finite life stories for God’s amazing eternal “Big Story”– one that He has been writing since before creation began. Each gathering is designed to be a celebration of the grace that has brought us from death to life and to elevate the name of Jesus and His glory above all else.

As a community devoted to following Jesus, the intention is to leave each gathering with great expectation for how He is going to change the planet and build His house as we offer up our lives for Him to use for that glorious purpose.

Childcare is available at all Elevate gatherings for children age 4 and under.
