Vision Night Recap

Our Vision Night Event on Sunday, January 14, was an incredible time of worship and fellowship. This was a time spent in reflection for how God has blessed our church and also a look ahead to what He is calling us to do.

Mark Sorensen

Grace and peace, church family,

Our current stewardship series, That’s Our Church, is a series for us all. It’s about us as a community of believers coming together as one body and doing immeasurably more, through the power of God at work within our lives. Our focus on stewardship this year is divided into four areas that surround a central principle of faith: generosity, guidance, gratefulness and growth. Stewardship is about committing to what we believe. We give of what we hold valuable, such as time, monetary gifts and talents, and the giving of these things to God puts action into our faith and allows more room for His work within our lives. Stewardship is not something to avoid — it is something to pursue. I hope you will join me in taking part in this series.

Your Pastor,

Generous Church Image

You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.

- 2 Corinthians 9:11

God’s gifts are not just sufficient — they overflow to enable generosity. Believers are called to be bold in their generosity, sharing not only material resources but also the gospel, reflecting the overflowing love of God to a world in need. By working together as a congregation, The Woodlands Methodist Church can amplify the impact our generosity has with others, acknowledging that God has provided everything needed for both physical and eternal well-being. The call to gratitude and generosity becomes a testament to the Savior who gave Himself, inspiring overflowing thanksgiving and a commitment to share the transformative message of the gospel.


We are reaching far and wide to help those in need and bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to where it is needed. This is not a passive effort. It takes someone willing to generously give of themselves to change another’s life.


Partners in Service

Our church is making a big impact in our local communities. Through our work with 33 local ministry partners, we are able to provide numerous ways to help our neighbors.


People Going Global

Helping doesn’t stop at home. Working with our global ministry partners, we are building schools, establishing churches and creating new lives across the world. Let's share God's love until the whole world knows.

Reaching | Expand Digital Strategy

The Woodlands Methodist Church has long felt the call to be a resource for the greater church. We believe God has called us not to keep our resources to ourselves, but to use them to bless other congregations.

Sowing Seeds

By embracing our calling as a Resource Church, we've embarked on a journey to share God's blessings with other congregations. In collaboration with Seedbed, we're sowing the seeds for a Great Awakening in Methodism. Hosted by Seedbed as "The Woodlands Resources," our commitment is to provide a diverse mix of free and paid resources, from Bible studies to church kits, enriching the spiritual journey of like-minded congregations worldwide.

Equipping New Planters

In 2024 The Woodlands Methodist Church is launching an online training platform for church planting pastors. This all-new, 12-module online tool is meant to educate and equip clergy for their planting journey. Branded as Planter’s Field Academy, this curriculum will be presented in an online courseware format and will cover a variety of topics ranging from evangelism and prayer to finance and marketing. The training will culminate with a certification in Church Planting endorsed by the Global Methodist Church. This training will officially stand as the pathway for church planters to begin their journey opening new churches under the Global Methodist Church. With an early spring launch, TWMC will begin to train hundreds upon hundreds of church planters throughout the United States to take part in a revived Methodist movement.

Brenna Bullock

Harvest Worship Leader

Bristol House

We have three goals: to write songs, raise up worship leaders and travel worldwide to encourage the church. We believe the Wesleyans have a specific voice in the church. We want to write songs saturated in the grace of God and a life of day to day transformation. Wesley said the Methodists were raised up for this purpose. We want to step in and write songs centered on this extravagant love.

Guided Church Image

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

- Mathew 6:19-21

Because of the generosity of the Gospel, we order our lives and our church around Scripture.

We recognize the profound wisdom shared by Jesus about the true treasures of life — not earthly possessions and material wealth, but treasures in heaven that are eternal. We understand that what we treasure reflects the essence of our hearts and signifies our true priorities. In understanding that our true treasure dictates ownership, we actively choose to be owned by the values of Jesus and His kingdom and to be guided by Him. This intentional alignment with Christ’s teachings brings glory to the Father and fosters our individual and collective flourishing as a church community.

Reaching | 365 People Give Their Lives to Jesus

The Woodlands Methodist Church is called to reach over 365 people a year for Christ. Every day, we seek the one person who needs to be saved.


Lives Given to Christ in 2023

Through baptisms and confirmations, people declare their desire to order their lives after the example of Christ and follow Him.

Discipling | 100% of Membership Involved in Discipleship

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
- Matthew 28:19-20

This is the Great Commision spoken by Jesus to His disciples. We hear His command no differently today. At the Woodlands Methodist Church we grow individuals, teams and ministsries to go out into the world sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.


Serving Positions Filled

Serve Teams steer the daily life of our church from interpersonal care and support to worship service technology. We support each other and our church.


Gather in Community

Community within a church plays a vital role in spiritual growth, support and purpose. Those in community can find encouragement and a sense of belonging in their faith journey.

Guided Church Image

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

- 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

As a grateful church, we strive to understand that our generosity reflects the gratitude we feel for the immeasurable love and sacrifice demonstrated by Him who gave His life for us. We recognize the profound call to give of ourselves, willingly offering our time, talents and resources in the service of Christ.

Discipling | Raise Up 1,000 Next Generation Leaders

At The Woodlands Methodist Church, we want to walk alongside the next generation, helping them grow in their faith, take ownership of their relationships with Jesus, honor God with their lives and become leaders for those who follow.

Marley Miller

NextGen Student

"I have just been so continuously poured into and that has inspired me to give back to a place that has given me so much. NextGen has showed me how to develop Christ-like friendships that will last a lifetime, to chase after God and to dive deeper into His Word."

Peyton Reeves

NextGen Student

"NextGen has helped form me by giving me opportunities, such as leading confirmation on the confirmation student leadership team, by empowering leaders to become discipleship group leaders, and by empowering them to lead others and strengthen their faith. It has also allowed me to go to events such as Edge Camp where the Lord has equipped me by calling me to teach the Word and surrender everything I have to Him."

Ashton Wendell

NextGen Student

"I see Jesus working through me and my friends every single day. I see Him changing lives in both the NextGen students and their parents. I get to go home after every NextGen service and share with my parents what I've learned, but I also get the gift of seeing how it has changed the younger generations."

Growing Church Image

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

- Acts 2:42-47

 A vibrant, growing church happens when believers are committed to the transformative power of the Holy Spirit. A commitment to Scripture, fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayer creates a foundation that reflects that power. 

Reaching | Launch New Worship Communities

Starting new churches is one of the greatest opportunities to reach new people with the good news of Jesus. Whether in a neighboring town or halfway around the world, these communities of believers are spreading the message of the Gospel.

Mark Sorensen

Senior Pastor

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this new season of growth and expansion at The Woodlands Methodist Church. The next season of our church is one of multiplication and church planting. We could not be more excited to see what God has in store.

Cabe Matthews

Pastor, The Church at Montgomery

It is a joy to be part of something bigger than ourselves. As a campus of The Woodlands Methodist Church, we get to be a part of extending their decades-long legacy into Montgomery – reaching people for Jesus Christ, discipling them in faith, and helping those in need.
