First off, we just want to welcome you to W3CU! We know that searching for a church home can be a stressful experience, but we hope that we can help answer some of your questions. We probably won’t answer every question you have, so feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, calling the office @ 937-695-0025 or stopping in. We’d love to talk to you.
What to expect
Our Sunday Morning Worship Celebration kicks off at 10 and usually lasts right at an hour and fifteen minutes. We are contemporary in our worship style and conversational in our preaching. So if you’re looking for the dirge and damnation, you won’t find them here. We believe in being practical in our preaching and in celebrating the goodness of God.
What should I wear?
Clothes are fine, we don’t want anyone to have a recurrence of those horrible dreams from when you were a kid and dreamed you went to school without pants :). Really, anything is fine. You’ll see people in everything from jeans and a shirt to people who are decked out in their Sunday best. We just love people whatever clothes they are packaged in.
What kind of music do you play?
We prefer not to focus too much on the type or kind of music that is played, but rather the message that is in the music. It’s all about praising and worshiping our God through songs. Sometimes that means a song that was written two months ago and sometimes that means a song that was written two hundred years ago.
What about my kids?
We love to help kids experience the presence of God at W3CU. The nursery is for ages 0-2yrs and is located in the Worship Center near the north-east entrance. Our greeters are always happy to help people find their way around if you need help. For kids from 3-11 have a safe and separate service across the street from the Worship Center in the Children’s Ministry Center called “Journeyland.” We love to have kids in Big Worship too, if you want to keep them with you, no biggie. It does take just a few minutes to get first-time kids signed in at Journeyland, so you might want to give yourself just a couple of extra minutes. We are serious about keeping our little one’s safe, so you will also have to remember to pick them up afterwards, even if you’d like to leave them :)
How do I… …become a member?
We would be honored to have you become a part of the W3CU family. The first step would be to speak with one of our pastors who will give you information about upcoming membership classes. After you’ve learned about the beliefs and doctrines of W3CU, you can ask all the questions you can muster, and if you’re satisfied, you’ll have the opportunity to go before the church body and make a vow to stand beside us.
…learn more about baptism?
We would recommend you speak with one of our pastors. They would be happy to answer any questions you have about it. If you’re interested in being baptized, there is a short class just before the baptism service.
…meet with a pastor?
Just give us a call or email. We’ll connect you with one of the pastors and you can set up a meeting with them at a time and location that is convenient for you both. Another great time to meet the pastor and leaders at W3CU is during a welcome luncheon. Usually about once a quarter W3CU hosts a welcome luncheon for new attendees, just fill out a communication card and indicate that it’s your first time and in just a few weeks you will get an invite to the quarterly welcome luncheon.
…give to the church?
One of the easiest ways to give is to simply show up on Sunday and drop your tithe or offering into the plate as it passes. However, we’re aware that this is the digital age and there are more convenient ways to do it and we have that covered as well. Just vist our giving page and you can learn all about ways to give online.
When we Meet
What To Expect
A typical service will last about 70 minutes. We sing a good mix of contemporary and traditional music that is led by our worship team. There is childcare available and activities for all age groups. Plan to hang around after the service for fellowship and meeting new people.
