100 Year Anniversary

We are rejoicing this year in the faithful care of God! We have seen His blessing over this body of believers for 100 years, and we are counting on His faithfulness for many more. Check back here to find more updates on what is happening and to read brief stories of the work of God over the years. We want to do like Deuteronomy 4:9 says, "Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. Make them known to your children and your children's children.”

Have you ever heard of the Wicked John Goode?

The history of Community Church has a great many fascinating stories of God’s goodness and faithfulness. Watch this video to hear about one of them. It’s a true story of how God saved a wicked, broken man, and used him for His glory right here in Woodland Park. And take heart! The same God who saved the Wicked John Goode is still active in our lives today. Praise the Lord for doing what only He can do!

WPCC has Strong Roots!

From it’s beginning, Mrs. Cora Tibbet Patterson was a devoted member of Woodland Park Community Church. Cora would walk through the snow to build a fire so the church would be warm for Sunday school. Although Sunday school was always well attended, the church did not have a permanent pastor. Preachers would serve temporarily or have special meetings. So, in 1924, Cora sent to New York for John Goode from the Bowery Mission, asking him to come to Woodland Park to preach a series of meetings and to tell his story of the power of God’s love to transform the worst of the worst. Then in 1928, Cora financed the addition on the west end of the church building for a Sunday school room and helped the young people buy a bell, the same bell we ring in our church today. Cora Patterson was a sacrificial giver and an inspirational example of the people who started Woodland Park Community Church.

Happy 100th Birthday Community Church!

This month we celebrate God’s goodness and faithfulness in shepherding this body of believers for the past 100 year's.

Let’s rejoice and proclaim together a Psalm of Thanksgiving.

Psalm 100: A Psalm for Thanksgiving.

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with jubilation;
Come before Him with rejoicing.
Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
And His courtyards with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting
And His faithfulness is to all generations.

Do you know that the Bible compares us to gardeners?

1 Corinthians 3:6-7 says, "I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth." We sow seeds of things like faith and obedience, but God is the one who causes all the growth. Next week at our 100th anniversary celebration we’ll have special guest speaker, Chris Asmus. Chris was sent by our church to Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota to – you guessed it – plant a church. And boy has it grown! Join us next week to hear what God has done. Oh, and because it’s a party, we have a little something extra planned that you won’t want to miss!

A Horse Walks Into A Church

A horse walks into a church…. No, really. A horse did walk into a church; our church! And we’ve got pictures to prove it! Pastor Jeff Townsend portrayed our full time pastor, Everett Dillon (he served as pastor 1927-1929), during the last service we held at our old church building on Henrietta Avenue. And we’re not horsing around, because going back to the 1800’s there are records of circuit riding preachers who faithfully brought the Word of God to our community. Happy 100th Community Church!
