find the church
Woodcrest is located on the northeast corner of Cliff Road and Highway 3 (South Robert Trail) in Eagan.
At Woodcrest Church, you will notice a casual atmosphere and people of all ages and walks of life. An usher can direct you to seats in the Worship Center - or you may sit wherever you are most comfortable.
During the Service...
This time is set aside for communicating with God from our hearts. Our worship team will lead us in upbeat, contemporary songs of celebration, as well as more intimate songs of worship. Many of the songs may be familiar to you if you listen to the radio stations KTIS (98.5 FM) or Spirit FM (95.9 or 107.5 FM). Everyone worships in his or her own unique way – for many, that means singing and clapping along, and for others it means quietly reflecting on the words. You are welcome to do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.
Each week Woodcrest's members and regular attenders make an offering. As a guest, there is no need for you to give. This is an act of worship for our regulars, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work he is doing in their lives. It also gives Woodcrest the means to reach more people for Christ in the future.
Every Sunday, our pastors give a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture and is designed to be helpful in your everyday life. Past messages are available on this website. These messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and apply Biblical teaching to your own life.
Usually, we celebrate communion together on the first Sunday of the month. Anyone can participate in this time of reflection and prayer – as long as they have made the decision to follow Jesus Christ. The juice and bread that we share represent the life he gave up so that our sins could be forgiven. Parents are encouraged to make certain their children are indeed ready to partake of communion and to assist them during the ceremony.
Our children's program is offered during both services and is the perfect place for children from birth-grade 5. The staff and volunteers create a safe, fun atmosphere in which children can learn Bible stories and participate in age-appropriate worship. Parents check-in children to a classroom. Parents who check infants/toddlers into the Nursery/Toddler Rooms receive a pager for ease of access in case of need.
During the school year, student programming is available during the second service (10:30 am) and meets downstairs in the Generations Wing.
During the summer services, students are invited to worship with their families in the worship center.
After the Service...
