YOUNG ADULTS Ages 18-25
Woodvale's Strive Young Adult Ministry meets every Thursday @ 7:30 pm and provides a social setting where those aged 18-28 can come together to worship, learn and grow spiritually. Our small groups meet bi-weekly and provide a great setting for challenging discussion.
We also do our best to look outside the walls of WPC to those in our surrounding communities through a variety of seasonal projects.
See www.striveyoungadults.ca for meeting locations and details.

#THE MARRIED LIFE
If you are a young married couple this group is the place for you. Your relationship will find shelter and support as you meet and connect with couples that share the same desire for their marriages to not just survive but thrive. #TheMarriedLife meets monthly.
This ministry unites the young married couples of Woodvale providing support and teaching on the real expectations and experiences of a new marriage. These events are always focused on fun and excitement, as well as bringing unity to all participants.

Whatever circumstances led you here, God has a plan and purpose in your season of singleness and single parenting. As a care ministry of Woodvale our purpose is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for single moms which fosters healing, promotes personal, emotional and spiritual growth, equips them in Biblical parenting, and ultimately looks to the Cross for life transformation through following Christ.
You need "help" from God and others, in healthy, Christ-centered relationships... not alone or in isolation, but from the outside. You need "healing" as many single moms do not experience freedom, peace, or joy due to unhealed pain from the past and unforgiveness rooted in their hearts.
We stand on the Word of God, the Bible, and biblically-based resources to equip you as followers of Christ, as single women, as single moms, and as spiritual leaders in your home. This will challenge you to deeper levels of faith and trust in Jesus Christ and will empower and enable you to meet the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of your children... they need this from you to feel loved and secure in an uncertain world no matter what their age or stage.
During the summer break, our group meets bi-weekly on Wednesdays and once a month on Saturdays. We do a variety of things like Bible Studies, pot-lucks and outings with our without our children. Check our listing under Connect Groups for more information.
Where can your kids hangout while we meet during the school year?

A GATHERING PLACE
Pull up a chair, grab a coffee or tea and contribute. We would love to get to know you!
We are part of a great, big body at Woodvale. We represent different ages and stages but we are all women and we are all looking for meaningful relationships with a healthy, loving community.
It could be argued that the internet is NOT the place to foster that but I would ask why not?
Why can't we "take back" that media and use it to facilitate meaningful connection and communication?
This site will provide a respectful, encouraging place for women at Woodvale to "meet" one another with the objective of enhancing our community on Sunday mornings and beyond!
It will, hopefully, evolve into a place that truly is representative of all the different personalities and perspectives of the women who call Woodvale Church their 'home'.
Doing Life Together
We have a large assortment of Connect groups for the women at Woodvale. The groups meet at various places around the city on various days of the week and at various times of day.
