In the early 1980s…
- $24,000 was raised to install a 3 X 4’ elevator rated for 450 lbs.
- In Memory of Harold Carter, two Elder’s Chairs were re-upholstered and placed behind the communion table. They subsequently moved to the back of the sanctuary.
- The church opened its doors to an emerging United Church of Christ congregation.
- …and was saving up for a church van.
- By 1982, membership stood at 457, and the church nearly quadrupled the outreach budget, to just under $100,000.
- The CWF held its bi-annual Quilt Show and Bazaar and made $3,600; enough for new choir robes, and to fix up the ladies restroom. More than 90 women attended the Spring Conference.
- LG and Del Osborn donated spring-loaded candlesticks for the communion table, which never appeared to burn down.
- Owing to the recent death of long-time Church Historian, Fan Lee Dalzel, the 75th Anniversary history was written by Hallie Perkins and Gladys Sheer, along with Elizabeth Roundtree, Katherine DeLong, Vicki Ray, Addie Mae McGurie, Doris Snow, Ray Cameron, and Frank Adams.
- For many years, Woodland Christian Church supported the United Campus Ministry at UK. In August of 1983 they launched the Koinonia House on Rose Street.
