WOODLAWN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH 150TH ANNIVERSARY

Woodlawn Presbyterian Church 150th Anniversary Planning Committee has begun and would like for you to be a part of this blessed occasion in February 2020. As we embark on 150 years of celebration, we reflect on the past with prayers on our hearts and on our lips as we look to the future with great anticipation that the same God who has guided us in the past will continue to guide us in years to come.

Thanks be to God for the belief, trust and courage of our founders, a small group of Christians who based their undying faith, prayers, and hopes for the future that we would still be here today allowing God to work in and through us for the furthering of His kingdom.
