Woodridge Congregational United Church of Christ, an open and affirming congregation, welcomes you to a community of hope, encouragement and love that is deeply rooted in the reality of the Risen Christ with all of the possibilities and challenges that it grants us. We are committed to Christ's call to worship and fellowship, of discipleship and stewardship and we joyfully and prayerfully live out that call in many ways.

As we continue to prepare for Christmas - our third Sunday of Advent will include:


*  the third in our sermon series:  "Characters in the Christmas Story - Joseph"

*  a time with children with the pastor and a full Sunday school 

*  special music and times of prayer and fellowship 


Is there a friend, neighbor, co-worker or family member that is looking for a church this Christmas season?
