Women of His Word

Fellowship. Study. Spiritual Growth.


Thursday mornings starting September 6, 9:30-11:45

Join us on September 6 in the Fellowship Center (downstairs next to the kitchen) for a time of fellowship, brunch, and worship before we break into our studies!


Seamless – Angie Smith, 7-week study

Boundaries – Cloud and Townsend, 10-week study

Have you ever wondered: Can I say no and still be a loving person?  In this study, we will look at ten laws of boundaries. You will study how sound boundaries give you the freedom to walk as the loving, giving, fulfilled person God created you to be.

Cost of book: $11.50.  Led by Barbara Boyd


Hebrews – Precepts, 10-week study (Part 1)

How do I walk by faith? Do we really have a God we can approach with confidence that He loves and accepts me…just the way I am? Come join us in the study of Hebrews as we explore the answers to these questions.

Cost of book: $24.75. Led by Kathleen Peck and Joyce Harwell


Praying Circles Around the Lives of Your Children – Mark Batterson,

Looking For A Place To Serve?

We really do believe that a healthy, vibrant children’s ministry is absolutely essential to the growth of the local and global church. DL Moody once said, “If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to  teaching children for God. “ To get plugged in, please contact Brooke at 

Food and Shelter for Friends Panera Bread Delivery

There are several dates coming up that are available!

Every weekend Panera Bread donates the leftover baked goods to Food and Shelter for Friends- and we need help making this delivery. It is very simple but a huge blessing to those who serve breakfasts to hungry members of our community!

You will pick up the bread from Panera Bread on Saturday night at close (10:00pm) or early Sunday morning (around 7:00am).  Food and Shelter for Friends asked that we just deliver all items the way we receive them (boxes, bags, or whatever) and deliver it on Sunday or Monday  from 7:30 to 1:30.  Any time during that window is fine.  

All you do is pick up items at Panera Bread and deliver the boxes as they are to Food and Shelter!  Be sure to take it to Food and Shelter’s NEW LOCATION:  201 Reed Avenue, Norman, Oklahoma 73071   

It just takes a little to be a huge blessing, sign up today!

New Arrival!

Congratulations to Bryan and Stephanie Porter on the birth of their son, Owen Jess. Owen was born August 18, weighed 4 pounds and 15 ounces, and was 17 inches long. He has one big brother, Hudson.


The Wildwood family wishes to express our sympathy to Mark Malthaner and family on the recent death of his sister.

Fellowship Assistance

Wildwood has a fellowship assistance fund to help those who are experiencing financial struggles. If God is moving within your heart to help, you can place a gift in the offering (or bring it by the church office). Please mark it “fellowship assistance” in the memo.

Outreach Updates

The Outreach Teams will be providing monthly updates for anyone interested in reaching Norman and beyond! You can sign up via text or email. Text OUTREACH18 to 95577 or email OUTREACH18 to
