We are delighted to have you stopped by and check us out. It is our pleasure to serve the greater Lakeland area.
Who we are
We are an independent Baptist Church serving the communities of Woodruff, Minocqua, Arbor Vitae and Hazelhurst. Our desire is to help you and your family grow in your understanding of God and know His blessing on your life. We invite you to browse the site to learn more about Woodruff Baptist. If we can serve you in any way, please feel free to contact us.
We realize that it can be a bit unnerving visiting a church for the first time. We can assure you that the building is structurally sound so the roof will not cave
in when you enter. Here is what you can expect.
We try to reserve the spaces along the west end of the church building for our guests. Please feel free to park there. Someone will greet you at the door with a bulletin and a friendly smile.
If you have young children, you are welcome to take advantage of our staffed nursery. It is down the steps to the left as you enter the door. We also offer a Junior Church program for children ages 4-9 years old. Just before the preaching time in the Morning Service, these children will be dismissed to go with the teacher to the Junior Church classroom.
People at our worship services will be dressed in a variety of ways from suits and ties, dresses, to business casual, to jeans. We are more concerned about you and your relationship to God than how you come dressed to church.
The Morning Worship Service at 11 AM will last about an hour. The typical elements will include several traditionally done hymns and songs, prayer, receiving an offering, Scripture reading, a time of greeting one another, and an emphasis on preaching.
Our preaching is focused on understanding the Bible, verse by verse, chapter by chapter and then making personal application to our lives so that we can live in a way that is honoring to God. It is the desire of our church family to learn and grow to be more of the type of people that God wants us to be.
After the sermon, typically, we will sing a song and have prayer to close the service. After the service, if you have children, we would ask you to pick them up from the nursery or Junior Church classroom. We welcome you to hang around and fellowship. An important part of the church is connecting with others. You will find the people at Woodruff Baptist to be friendly and truly interested in you. We hope you will visit with us soon!
