There are times when our lives or our relationships seem to be falling apart. Sometimes you may feel like there is no help for your situation. However, we believe there is hope! We offer you the opportunity to meet with church staff to discuss your situation.
Through this discussion they will help connect you to the community and to resources that can be a bridge to bring hope and healing to your life or relationship.
We offer several marriage classes at Woodcrest that span from premarital to developing stronger relationships to help with troubled marriages to navigating step-families. These classes meet on the Columbia campus during our spring and fall semesters. Click INFO/REGISTER for details

Liberated: God's Desire For Us To Live Free Of Substance Abuse And Guilt is a group of women and men who offer a safe and confidential environment to help each person figure out what it looks like to honor God in their decisions about their use of alcohol or drugs. The group, led by volunteers with extensive experience in both the sobriety and emotional health components of Woodcrest Recovery Ministry, works to provide an environment for discussion, perspective and encouragement. Participation is limited to those who are examining their alcohol or drug use, but participants are not required to declare themselves as addicts or alcoholics, nor does the spiritual nature of our discussions require any profession of faith. This group meets year round on Thursdays at 6:30pm in Room 9.
We live in a busy, noisy world, especially during the Advent and Christmas season. One gift we can give to ourselves is the gift of retreat. Retreat is a spiritual practice where we make space for God. Emilie Griffin writes, "Retreat is a generous commitment to friendship with God." During retreat we practice spiritual disciplines like silence, solitude, teaching, and reflections.
We host an Advent-focused Silence & Solitude Retreat around the first weekend of December each year. Our focus for this retreat will be to prepare our hearts for the Christmas season. The retreat typically begins on a Saturday at 1:00 pm and ends Sunday at 2:00 pm. It is held at the beautiful Lakeview Lodge at Windermere, Lake of the Ozarks.
The Sacred Journey retreats consist of a cohort that meets 8 times together over the span of two years. The retreats will explore the spiritual disciplines of desire, rest, prayer, scripture, known, listen, called and thrive. We also offer “GUEST SPOTS” at each retreat for those unable to commit for the two-year cohort or for those simply wanting to test the waters.
