Our people and our facility are making a difference in the community. Here's how we do it...

working for change

Woodside's DNA is social justice. From the Underground Railroad, to Selma and fair housing, to Black Lives Matter and immigrant children, we've marched, read, written, shared, organized, challenged and invited folks to see a better way. It's sort of a Jesus-thing with us. Here's what we're working on now:  

  • marriage equality

  • mass incarceration reform

  • water quality, affordability and access

Plus, we're showing up for better gun laws, income equality and economic justice, racial justice, immigration and refugee justice, interfaith respect, and a demilitarization of law enforcement.

Also, Flint Neighborhoods United meets at Woodside the 1st Saturday each month, 8-11 am. 

To get involved in any of these, to join a book group or get notified about upcoming events, email and we'll add you to our list.

We often rent our space for weddings, memorial services, or personal/family events. Shortly, we'll have those forms here for printing. Meanwhile, if you'd like to arrange to rent, email the office or stop by, and we'll put it in your hands. Please specify the event, so we send the right form! Special note to LGBT couples: the SCOTUS ruling may be like old news to some people, but we promise to celebrate your wedding as if it's our first. Call the office to make an appointment.
