Visiting Christ Wesleyan Church for the first time can feel like a really big step. We want you to feel comfortable during your visit with us. If you’re hesitant, know there are many new families visiting each week. If you have any questions, please contact us ahead of time to help you with your first visit.
About the Church Service:
What are Sunday services like?
- We have two services on Sunday mornings: 9:00 & 10:45. Each service lasts about 90 minutes.
- At CWC, we believe prayer is very important and set aside time each week to pray together. You’re not required to participate.
- We celebrate together what God has done in our lives, so it’s not unusual for us to clap!
- Our Auditorium seats 1,100 every Sunday. So if you prefer a smaller setting, we may not be the best fit for you.
What are the pastor’s messages like?
The morning message (about 30 minutes) gives us great biblical teaching and understanding how to apply it to our everyday lives. Watch the most recent sermon here.
What’s the music like?
- Our music is a blend of modern and traditional styles with our band and choir.
- Some people raise their hands during the service–this doesn’t mean they have a question, but it’s an expression of praise and respect to God. We don’t expect everyone to do this, just as you desire to outwardly express yourself.
Do you take an offering?
- We believe everything we have God has generously given to us, and we want to give a portion of what He’s entrusted to us back to Him.
- We don’t pass a plate during the service, but have black giving boxes throughout our facility and online giving to give your offering back to God as you feel led.
Your First Visit:
Where do I go once I arrive?
When you arrive, use The Auditorium entrance (main door #6). Once inside, in the foyer, you’ll see The Hub (our welcome desk) directly in front of you, and lots of Guest Service team members ready to assist you! We even have a Navigator Team to escort you to where you’d like to go.
Should I come early?
You may want to arrive a little early to make sure you have enough seats for your family and connect with others before the service. If you have children, please allow 15-20 minutes to get your child registered and to their classroom.
What should I wear?
You’ll find a variety in appearance at CWC–anything from a suit and tie to jeans. Don’t worry about what to wear. Come as you are!
How do you welcome first-time visitors?
We won’t embarrass you or ask you stand up or raise your hand during the service. We would love the opportunity to get to know you and for you to get to know us. While you’re visiting, stop by The Hub (our welcome desk), outside The Auditorium for more information and receive a special gift put together just for you.
For the Kids:
Is there anything for my kids to enjoy?
- Yes! We have a wonderful program called KidzWay for kids ages 9 mos.- 5th grade during both services. KidzWay is a place where kids learn about God in a fun atmosphere created just for them!
- For your first visit, stop by a KidzWay check-in kiosk in the Auditorium Foyer and allow 15-20 minutes to get your child connected and to their classroom.
- We also have a great youth program (“The Core”) during our 10:45am service for students in grades 6-12. In our youth center, The Outlet, teens connect with others, and break into small groups to study God’s Word.
Is my child going to be safe?
Your child’s safety is very important to us. That’s why we’ve set up a check-in system which also gives parents and guardians the confidence knowing their children are safe in this kid-friendly environment.
I have a small child who struggles to sit through a service, is there a place I can take my little one and still enjoy the service?
The Family Room is the perfect place for you and your child. If you need a room to feed your little one or have an active child who is unable to attend KidzWay or sit in service, the Family Room is an area where both of you can watch the whole service together.
ASL and Spanish Interpreting:
During our 10:45am service, a nationally certified interpreter is available for any deaf or hard of hearing individuals who would like to experience worship. Reserved seating is available, and our Guest Services team is happy to help you find a seat. Simply stop by The Hub (our welcome desk) outside The Auditorium when you arrive.

During the Week:
Is there anything offered at CWC during the week?
- Sunday morning is the front door to everything at CWC! On Wednesdays, there are many evening activities for the whole family including: Hype Youth (6th-8th grade), choir practice, Hispanic Group, and many groups for adults to meet on campus.
- There are a lot of ministry opportunities at CWC and ways you can get connected and involved. To learn more, stop by the Connections Center on Sunday morning in the foyer, or visit our online Connections Center.
- The best way to make a large church feel smaller is to join a small group. Sharing life together and learning in a group will provide richness and depth to your walk with Christ. These groups meet throughout the week and at different locations, so it’s easy to find one near you. Visit the Connections Center on campus on Sundays or online to take the next step.
