Big Woods – Transformed Lives Transforming a Community
Thank you for checking out our website. I hope you sense the excitement of what God is doing at Big Woods! Just over thirty years ago a handful of students from Lock Haven University met together to worship God, study the Bible, and build relationships with one another. That small group has grown today to become a thriving church filled with many people who are doing the exact same thing; and as a result, they are impacting our community.
Our mission at Big Woods is simple: Love God & Love people. We seek to accomplish that mission by clearly focusing on our vision: To build relationships so that God is glorified and lives, homes, and families are transformed through the Good News of Jesus Christ.
As a pastor, one of the greatest joys in my life is that I get to meet people all the time and listen to stories of how the Gospel has transformed their lives. One young man told me recently, “I was on a path to destruction… until I met Jesus.” This reminded me that ALL of us go through struggles, and ALL of us face tough times; but thankfully God never intended for us to have to go through those times alone. He gave us one another; and, most importantly, He gave us His own Son, Jesus, to carry our burdens.
As you search our website and learn more about the ministries that are impacting our community, please know I am excited about what God is doing at Big Woods, and I invite you to join us. Whether it is coming to one of our Worship Services on Sunday mornings or connecting with one of our mid-week ministries (New Life, Navigate, Women’s Ministry, or Home Groups) you are welcome at Big Woods! I look forward to meeting you.
With Much Grace,
Pastor Tim Boger
