“Worship of the living and true God is essentially an engagement with him on the terms that he proposes and in the way that he alone makes possible.” – David Peterson

We want The Woodlands First to be a place where people can experience God in authentic, vibrant worship. We believe that everyone has a musical “heart language,” and so we offer worship services that give people an opportunity to express their worship in a way that is most meaningful to them. Our traditional service begins at 9:30 am led by our Celebration Choir and Orchestra. Our modern service begins at 10:50 am and is led by our worship band.

We are excited for our Children’s Spring Musical, FAITH NEWS! Faith News Network (FNN) is Heaven’s number one source of news! Angel reporters roam the earth, interviewing people from the Bible during defining moments in their lives. And as we learn about the lives of these Bible characters, we are inspired to think… will WE be in the “Heavenly headlines” today?
