People mattered to Jesus and people matter to us.
Because you were important enough for the God of the universe to allow His Son to sacrifice His life for you, we believe that you matter. That you have been gifted. That you are uniquely created in the image and likeness of God and that you are deeply loved. Because we believe this we want you to feel welcomed to a place where you will be invited to follow Jesus and experience the transformation that He alone can bring.
Multiplying Disciples // Transforming Lives
To follow Jesus Christ, grow as His disciples, serving and telling others, so that all may know Him as Savior and Lord.

Our heritage is LCMS and our foundational beliefs are unchanging - God is revealed to us in Scripture Alone, we are saved by Grace Alone through Faith Alone. But we are unique in that we are made up of people from a wide range of denominational backgrounds to no church background at all, and they all feel at home here. God has blessed us with vibrant ministries on three locations; we’re thankful to be able to serve people from all over the east metro.
If you’re just getting to know Woodbury Lutheran, or if you’ve been here a while and are now ready to take some next steps, we are excited to walk with you. Please check out the website a bit more and learn about the values that make us tick and the next steps we want you to take. We hope that you will be moved to come and see what God is doing through the people of our church. Maybe this is the invitation you need to rediscover the truth that you matter to God.
