Thank you for being willing to work with us in practicing safety measures at CWC, and continuing to wear masks when entering and exiting our campuses! With the new state guidelines, we will not be changing our present safety practices, and wanted to share some updates with you:

  • Unfortunately, we will not be able to open children’s ministry, youth, or groups on July 12 (we will open these areas of ministry when we feel it is safe—stay tuned for an update).
  • The Well Coffee House will open with restaurant guidelines and Well Read Bookstore will open on Sunday, July 12.
  • No pre-registration is needed for weekly on-campus worship.

We are very pleased with how things have been going since reopening, and look forward to worshiping with you either in-person or online this weekend.

If you know someone who doesn’t have internet or has limited internet, share with them to CALL IN to the live service. During one of our four worship services each weekend, they can call a toll-free number to listen live over their phone.

The phone number (toll-free) is: (855) 520 – 4795

We may not keep this feature forever, but while church is limited to online only, we will offer this! Remember, the service is only available while that service is happening online, and it’s in real time. (Weekend services times are: Saturday at 6:00pm, Sunday at 9:00am, 10:45am, & 6:00pm.)

The church office continues to stay open weekdays 8:00am-5:00pm, and we’re happy to welcome you to our facility! To ensure your level for comfort-ability, and in view of the restrictions that have been made we are:

  • Asking you to remember the 6-feet social distancing
  • Asking that you not enter the building if you have a fever or any virus symptoms
  • Our workers will wear a mask when interacting with the public, if you prefer.
  • We are using all the sanitation practices recommended: sanitizing surfaces, hand washing, etc.

We are continuing to meet together for weekend worship with church services offered online: Saturday at 6:00pm & Sunday at 9:00am, 10:45am, & 6:00pm.

A Message from Pastor Arlie Davis

Dear Christ Wesleyan Church (CWC) Family & Friends,

We wanted to come to you quickly with important information concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the temporary measures we’re taking as a church family. We are choosing to remain calm, trust God, but also take the situation very seriously to help support the efforts of our state and community. As always, no matter what we face, we have a God who is bigger. We will continue to trust Him in the days ahead.

On Thursday, March 12, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf provided an update on the state’s COVID-19 (coronavirus) mitigation efforts, which included guidance to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Included in his report is the “strong encouragement of the suspension of large gatherings, events, and conferences of 250 individuals or more.”

Therefore, after much prayer, and in accordance with the biblical directive of honoring our governing authorities and out of concern for the health and safety of our local communities, CWC will be suspending all Sunday gatherings at both campuses this Sunday, March 15, 2020. This includes KidzWay, Youth, and all on campus group opportunities. This practice of social distancing is meant to limit the spread of the virus and other seasonal illnesses in accordance with The Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Please know that this decision is not made out of fear, but instead out of obedience to God’s Word and out of concern for all the people who call CWC home as well as the communities in which we live.

The good news is that CWC is not a building – the church is the people – it’s you and it’s me. And while we may not be gathering in our usual buildings this weekend, I would invite you to stay engaged by joining us for one of our 2 Church Online gatherings at 9:00 or 10:45am. This livestream will include the full service you are used to experiencing at CWC with music, prayer, and a sermon. Simply go to www.cwc.life to find out more about streaming times and COVID-19 updates.

Let me share a word of encouragement with you. These are unpredictable times and we all have questions and concerns, but as I have said many times to you, God’s got this! He is a God who is always filled with hope and who holds our future firmly in His hand. You will be tempted to have feelings of fear and worry, but instead, replace those thoughts with God’s message from His Word, “I have not given you a spirit of fear or timidity, but one of power, love, and self-control.”

This is a fast-changing situation and future weeks may be subject to change. We’ll continue to keep you informed as things unfold in the days ahead, but in the mean time, use common sense and lean in to Jesus – he will not leave us alone.

See you this weekend for Church Online!

Pastor Arlie

PS–Remember: Church is a people, not a building.
