Cemetery Policy

Woodland Baptist Church Perpetual Care Cemetery, Inc is maintained by the Deacon Ministry Team.  The cemetery is for the use of Woodland Baptist Church members unless prior arrangements were made through the purchase of a plot in the cemetery by non-church members.  The non-church member(s) whom wishes to be buried in the cemetery must present documentation of authorization to the church clerk for filing and reference of proof.  Family members and funeral directors should contact the church prior to burial to confirm burial in the church cemetery is authorized.

The cemetery will be maintained in a spirit of remembrance of those buried in the cemetery.

I Feel Like Woodland Has Done A Amazing Job At Taking very Good Care Of The Church And The Youth There I Grew Up Going To VBS And Bible Study There
Okay, next to my family and my kids, this is my Passion topic! It's what gets my juceis flowing.First and foremost, I believe that those statistics are proof that the church has fallen asleep. The church has narrowed itself into a corner and unless willing to adapt to some change, this statistic I fear will grow. Churches have been doing what they do because that's the way it's always been done. Some churches hold tight to Tradition. The church can never compete with culture. They will never win. Its just the way it is. But the church can certainly change from "doing" to having a strategy.If You read my "About" section on my blog, you'll see a line where I wrote, "I bleed Orange." I encourage you to check out to learn more about that and to see where my firm stance on what the church should be doing.We (as in Us, Moms, Parents, etc) put So much responsibility on the Church for those poor statistics. I see it as a 50/50 deal. Parents need to wake up and realize that they are the primary spiritual leaders in their kids lives. The church is a "Partner" to you as a Parent. Or at least it should be. There in lies the problem. Churches are failing to see that they need to come along side of us as parents and support us and understand that what happens at home is far more important than what happens at church. I am a product of Christian parents, christian private schools and church all my life. I saw friends come and go within the church. From my experience, The leadership within the church are all on different pages. Nursery, elementary, youth and "big" church are all doing their own thing. There is no strategy. They are silo'd. I beg of the church to align themselves together with parents and have a strategy for how to get a child from birth through college not ever wanting to leave the church! It is possible. It just means people are going to have to adapt to change and let some things go. Sorry for the rant. I warned you that it was a Passion area for me. I could say so much more.... : )
