Woodlawn's Shining Star Ministry exists to exalt Christ by addressing the spiritual, educational, social and physical interests and concerns of people 55 and better. We take our name from Philippians 2:14-16:


Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life ...


As God sustains and protects us, we want to "shine like stars" to glorify him.


Our FOCUS is:


  • Fellowship: Building positive, fulfilling relationships through worship experiences and activities “that make our joy complete.” (1 John 1:1-4)

  • Outreach: Responding to people near and far as we share the love of Christ. (Acts 1:8)

  • Compassion: Reminding each individual of their value to God and the Church through spiritual, physical and emotional support. (Philippians 2:1-4)

  • Unity: Maintaining unity in the church family by “bearing with one another in love.” (Ephesians 4:2-3)

  • Service: Providing opportunities to serve Christ by serving others. (Ephesians 4:12)
