Plan Your Visit
At Christway, we're always excited to welcome new visitors and fully believe that all are welcome in the house of the Lord.
We hope you'll join us for a service, and we want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Below are some answers to questions you might have prior to your visit.
Please don’t worry about what you’ll wear to church, for we truly believe people should come to God as they are. You don’t need to dress up to get his approval–that comes through Jesus’ sacrifice. Once you walk in the doors, you’ll see that the congregation has all types of people in all kinds of dress. While a few people in the church wear ties, others like to remind them that Jesus never wore a tie. Shorts are as welcome as suits, and you’ll see both.
When you walk into worship center (located on the left side of the building near the playground) you may find that the first person you meet will be one of our greeters. Our greeters are volunteers within our church that want to make you feel comfortable and help show you where everything is. For those interested in childcare services, Life Groups, or teen service areas, they will be able to direct you to any of those services. Our greeters can also point you to the restrooms, worship center, and fellowship hall. If you have any questions about the service itself, the greeters are able to provide helpful answers.
Be sure to hang around after the service if you have a few moments. You’ll have the opportunity to meet our pastor and many other people in the church. We’d also love to get to know you so you’re a familiar face the next time you join us for worship.
If you’re interested in learning more about areas you can get connected please see the Connect tab. There you will find information regarding all our ministries including C3 Kids, C3 Students, Life Groups (otherwise known as Sunday school), and other Adult Ministries including PAL Ministry, Reboot Combat Recovery, and our First Responders Ministry.
For those looking for volunteers opportunities please contact our church office.
It’s not an uncommon question, but one that is often overlooked. Does your church take communion and if so when? Here at Christway we celebrate the remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross through communion in both our 9 AM and our 11 AM Sunday worship services each week. We also partake in communion during other special services, such as Christmas Eve.
Due to COVID-19 we have opted for single-serve communion preparation to limit cross-contamination. Single serve communion cups can be picked up when you enter the worship center. You’ll see them set out for easy selection on our Welcome Desk. For those who prefer to worship from home via one of your streaming services, communion can be picked up from the church office so that you may partake in communion from the safety of your home. Please contact the church office if this is a service you’re interested in.
Service Styles & Times
Our 8:30 AM Traditional worship and our 10:30 AM Contemporary worship are both offered weekly for your convenience. While there are differences in our worship styles between our Traditional and Contemporary worship services, the essential elements of service remain constant. You'll have the opportunity to participate in communion and receive the same message in both services.
Traditional worship - 8:30 AM
Life Groups - 9:30 am
Contemporary Worship - 10:30.
Our 8:30 AM service is what many would consider a traditional service format with classic hymns. Many of these are songs that have been sung in churches across many denominations for the past 100 years or more.
Our 10:30 AM service is a more contemporary style. Our praise team lead us in worship using songs you may be familiar with from Christian radio.
