Service times, directions, and what to expect on your first visit.
Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and visitng a new church can feel a little uncomfortable. We want to help your first experience at Woodstock Assembly to be a great one!
Woodstock Assembly meets every weekend on Sundays at 1201 Dean St, in Woodstock, IL.
Church Prayer: Sundays at 9:00am
Worship Service: Sundays at 10:00am
Every FIRST Sunday of the month is special at Woodstock Assembly and is Family Focused.
Come at 9:00AM and let's have coffee and breakfast snacks together as the kids play in the
gym. Age 0-100 welcome! We are all family.
Following our fellowship in the gym, is our regularly scheduled service. On Family First Sundays
the kids preschool and older stay in service with their parents or guardians and we do church as a family
with fun worship, games, and a lesson to help us grow closer to Christ together.
BE THE CHURCH (5th Sunday)
There are 4 months in every year that have FIVE Sundays instead of FOUR.
On these special 5th Sundays we get together as a church body and SERVE in and around
Woodstock instead of meeting for worship. We meet together for a free breakfast at 9:00 AM and
split off into groups to serve at places such as Turning Point, and a bread ministry in another location.
We also hold a small prayer and devotional service in the sanctuary for visitors or those unable to get out and serve.
5th Sundays in 2019: March 31st, June 30th, September 29th, and December 29th
Wednesday nights at Woodstock Assembly are for DISCIPLESHIP.
AWANA type classes for pre-school-5th grade (resumes Feb 13th) 6:30-7:30 PM
Youth Group, Prayer Service, and Table Talk (adult discipleship) Launching in the spring
What can I expect?
HOW LONG IS A WOODSTOCK ASSEMBLY SERVICE?
In total, a Woodstock Assembly service is about an hour and fifteen mins in length, though sometimes they are less and sometimes they are more. We aren't a church strict on time. Services begin with our worship leader, leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screen so you can sing along and/or engage in worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, there will be announcements about upcoming events, the collection of tithes and offerings, and then our pastor or another member of the teaching team will share a message based on truth from the Word of God. Often times we end service with a time of reflection and more music.
WHAT IS THE CULTURE LIKE AT WOODSTOCK ASSEMBLY?
Sundays at Woodstock Assembly are RELAXED, SIMPLE, and ENGAGING. When you step into our church expect to feel welcomed as family.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
Woodstock Assembly has exciting ministries for children, Infant through 5th grade on Sunday mornings. We want every child that attends Woodstock to have a BLAST and every parent to know their child is safe and cared for. All of our volunteers have been trained and have undergone background checks. A lot of them even have teaching or childcare experience! The first time you arrive, plan to come 10 mins early so we can get your child checked in to our computer based system. Your child will receive a name tag, and you will receive a parent tag with a matching code. If your child needs you for anything during service, your child's code will be displayed on screen during service.
Once your child/children are checked in, babies and toddler can go straight to the nursery, and preschool through 5th grade will come to service with you for the music part. They will be dismissed with their teachers to class after worship where they will get a Biblical teaching at their age level, as well as engage in fun activities or create something cool to take home with them about their lesson.
Children's Ministry is available for every service except for Family First Sundays and Fifth Sundays. (See Above)
