If you JOYn us for our June 14 trip, you may think we have traveled to California or even France. We will visit Lavender Hills in Brooksville near Mayslick, Kentucky. We have reservations for a lavender inspired lunch in the Farmhouse and can visit their gift shop and see the fields of lavender. Lunch is a planned menu and is $15.00 per person. Meet at the church at 10:00 am for departure; we will return by 4:00 pm. Come and JOYn us!

Below is the JOY 2017 calendar of events. You don't have to go on all or any certain number of trips. One will do for a JOYful time. The fellowship is a lot of fun and we always eat well. Come JOYn when you can.

The ActOut Theater Group, Inc. has been practicing weekly at Woodland and they would like to invite you to their play:

by Marty Wayman
Sponored by Kentucky for Kentucky
"A play about love and a bunch of other things."
Lexington Downtown Arts Center
June 9-10 and 16-18
Tickets: $20 (Call 859-425-2562)
Curtains at 8:00 pm with a Sunday matinee at 2:00 pm


During the summer, all ages are welcome to play kickball in the church field after Sunday services. The idea was well-received by children and adults after a quick survey at the picnic. Starting June 11, we'll gather in Fellowship Hall to give folks a chance to change clothes, have a snack, and review how to play. (No experience necessary!) Please wear sneakers just to be safe.

If you have questions, e-mail June Salyer.

. . . participants. Our Woodland Prayer group is small but a good ministry. We meet each Monday morning at 10:30 am in the Committee Room. We are usually finished by 11:30 am or before. We look at whoever is on the prayer list at church; add any names we know about in addition. We keep track of those we pray for and send a card to those on our list. At the end of our time of reflection and writing, we pause for a joint prayer. we reflect on those we want to include in prayer who are ill, have a sorrow, are in need, are celebrating, are filled with joy. It is a special time of connections. Please feel free to join us any Monday morning.


Are you tired mid-week and want someone else to cook for you? Are you lonely and wish you had others to share the dinner hour? Are you in need of a mid-week 'pick up' by being with your church family? Come and join us for dinner.

6:15 pm: Setting the table(s)
6:30 pm: Dinner
7:30 pm: Close with a time of breaking bread and sharing a prayer

Dinner is $4.00 per person OR $10.00 per family of three or more.

To help with meal preparations, please RSVP to the church office by 1:00 pm each Tuesday. Contact information is: 859-266-3416 or office@woodlandchristianlex.org.

Come and join us! All are welcome!


With the mild winter Kentucky has experienced this year, cold and snowy weather could still come our way through April. So, we continue to post Woodland's Inclement Weather Policy, which is as follows:

If Fayette County Schools are closed, events (may not include church office hours) at Woodland are cancelled for the same day.

If weather is bad enough on a Sunday morning to not have a service, check Facebook or call the church office at 859-266-3416 for a message. Also check WLEX-18 for church closings.
