New to the church? Want more info about what and who CCWS is? Here are some commonly asked questions we get from first time visitors:
How Should I Dress For Church?
We are more concerned about you meeting with Jesus and being built-up in the faith than with what you wear. You will see people on a typical Sunday dressed as much as a shirt and tie all the way to sweat pants and a hoody. Most of the congregation dresses casual--slacks, jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, sandals, etc.
What's Available For My Children?
We believe that God wants our little ones to come to Him, therefore, we provide a Children's Ministry broken down according to age and grade level. Because of this, the children are taught on a level that they will best understand the Word of God. Age-appropriate classes are provided for infants through Junior High School, taught by teachers who LOVE JESUS and want to SHOW THAT LOVE to our children. The safety of our children is also of our utmost concern. We have a sign in procedure allowing only the permitted parents/guardians to sign in and sign out their child. Security is ALWAYS watching the classrooms and hallways of the children as well.
For moms that are still nursing their baby, there is an area in our Nursery specifically designed for mothers which enables you to watch the service from a closed-circuit TV so you don't have to miss any of the church service.
What Should I Expect During A Church Service?
Service begins with a time of worship. Our worship is a mixture of contemporary praise music with an occasional hymn. We have a big band with drums, guitars, keyboard and vocalists who love to sing out to Jesus. We believe Jesus is worthy to be praised and as a church it is our goal to bring forth the praises HE ALONE IS WORTHY OF! Our Pastor then follows with a specific message from the portion of scripture where we left off previously. Pastor Dave teaches straight from the Bible, line upon line, verse upon verse so that we don't miss anything that the Lord would want to speak to us. The first Sunday of every month we have a communion service in remembrance of what Jesus did for us on the Cross. You can sample Pastor Dave's teaching at our "online teachings" link.
How Can I Get To Know People?
We encourage you to come to our various events and meetings throughout the week in order to get to know our fellowship and to form friendships. Another great way of getting to know people is through the Engedi Cafe. Before and after every service, our church coffee shop is open. We serve various food, snacks, sodas and coffee drinks. There is ample seating so come in, sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee. We also have a bookstore adjacent to the cafe full of Bibles and Christian reading material.
