Where In The World?

Kids, check out the flags downstairs for the chance to win a prize! The 11 flags on the short wall (by the kitchen and Room 1) represent the places where Wildwood’s overseas partners are working.

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!

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
