Woodcrest United Church of Christ, 8107 Thouron Avenue in Philadelphia, PA 19150 is a small mature congregation located in a quiet residential neighborhood in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia.
Our Mission: The Woodcrest congregation officially revised the church’s mission statement to more accurately reflect our spiritual growth and how we fellowship with each other and the community: “A church that is Bible based, Christ centered, Holy Spirit led and Mission Bound. We are here to glorify God by changing lives through Worship, Discipleship, Fellowship and Stewardship.”
75th Anniversary: Woodcrest officially celebrated its 75th year during the week of June 7 through June 14, 2015. The theme for the celebration was “We’ve Come This Far by Faith” and the week included two special afternoon services, two nights of revival services and a gala banquet.
Ongoing Activities: Woodcrest has established a core of ministries and traditions by which we are blessed by others and which serve as a source of blessing for others. We look forward to this new year as we plan for such events as: Elder Diner, Vacation Bible School, Flea Markets, Unity Day, Sunday in White, Family and Friends Day, Thanksgiving basket donations to the community, Move Up Day, Girl Scouts, School supply donations, Veterans Celebration, and Everybody’s Birthday. We also look forward to a couple of new events that we started last year- Unity Café and Family Movie Nite. We invite folks to worship with us each Sunday for Adult Sunday School at 9:30 am, Praise and Worship at 10:45, Worship Service at 11:00, and Children’s Church at 11:30 on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sunday of the month. Blessings.
