As in other Minnesota communities, Christian churches were established soon after the town. Over the years, most of Woodbury's early churches either closed, moved to neighboring communities, or merged with other churches. However, new churches have taken their places and, particularly given the diversity in Woodbury, particularly during the past couple of decades, other religions have also become part of the community.
