Woodland Shores, a Church where Love and Truth Meet
The pioneers of this church were blessed to be able to acquire 6 1/2 acres of land on Shawnee Road, a wonderful main street out from Bridgman. There we have had several building programs that include a gorgeous worship center and a terrific family center that includes a gymnasium, kitchen, and wonderful adult and children’s rooms.
Now the church enjoys a building and campus with great potential and no debt, the spirit of a “New Day” – a slogan that has been embraced as we get ready to welcome a new pastor.
Currently the church has ties to the past with Pastor Emeritus Win Decker, who led this church for 17 years and some of its finest growth. Interim Pastor Craig Clapper and Consulting Pastor Knute Larson now lead the staff and strategy – they share over 80 years of pastoral experience with strong churches that major on the Word of God and our Lord as central and love and grace as the mood.
Current goals include a stronger embrace of the community in which we live, global missions emphasis, and the Sunday and daily connections that come from not only sharing the Christian faith but seeking to know it better.
And to welcome new people with delight!
