BRIEF HISTORY

      Woodcrest United Church of Christ was organized by The Reformed Church of the United States in 1940.  During the 1940's and into the 1950's, with the growth of membership, new ministries and clubs were organized to meet the needs of the members and the community.  As Woodcrest became more of an influence in the community, the need for school facilities in the area was brought to the attention of the Board of Education, resulting in the founding of the Edmonds Public School. 


     In the late 1960's, as the makeup of the community began to change, Black members were welcomed into the Woodcrest  congregation. This continued into the early 1970's, as the Mt. Airy neighborhood continued to transition, with many older    members moving out and younger families moving in.  Although the makeup of east Mt. Airy has changed over the years, Woodcrest has remained a mainstay of the community.

   

     Woodcrest has been blessed with eleven permanent and several interim and supply pastors throughout its history. Each has brought their unique gifts and innovations to meet the  needs of the congregation and the community. Currently, Rev. Venord M. Cowan serves as our Supply Pastor.  






Statement of Faith



We believe in you O God, Eternal Spirit, God of our Savior Jesus Christ and our God, and to your deeds we testify:


You call the worlds into being, create persons in your own image, and set before each one the ways of life and death.


You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.


You judge people and nations by your righteous will declared through prophets and apostles.


In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior, you have come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to yourself.


You bestow upon us your Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the Church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues and races.


You call us into your church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship, to be your servants in the service to others, to proclaim the gospel to all thw world and resist the powers of evil, to share in Chrit's baptism and eat at his table, to join him in passion and victory.


You promise to all who trust you forgiveness of sins and fulness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, your presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in your realm which has no end.


Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you. Amen.
