Additional information about parking is available in the lobby of the TFWC every week. Here is a map of our parking options.

Members of our Greeting Team will meet you at the entrance to the building. They’ll answer your questions, such as “How do I get around this building?” “Where will my children go?” or anything else you would like to know before worship.

We print upcoming events in our weekly bulletin and have visitor cards that can be used to communicate directly with the church staff. Our pastoral team will be available after the service and would love to talk with you. To find out more about what’s going on at Christ Church before you visit, subscribe to our weekly eNewsletter.

Our worship is guided by historical, biblically-based liturgy. The service is divided into two main sections: the Ministry of the Word, where we read from the Bible, listen to a sermon, and pray as a congregation, and the Ministry of the Table, where we receive Communion–bread and wine blessed in prayer–as our weekly celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Nursery for children 0-5 years old will be available at both services. We also have programs for children in grades K-6 during both services.

All Christians who are baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are welcome to share in communion, regardless of church or denomination tradition. For those who are still on the journey toward God, you can participate in communion as well. You can join us in the hymns and songs sung during Communion, come forward with the congregation and receive a blessing from the priest by crossing your arms across your chest, or receive prayer from the prayer ministry teams at the back of the sanctuary.

We use many different kinds and styles of music in our worship. Some pieces we sing were written in the last few months and others are classic hymns sung for centuries throughout the Church.
Our service usually lasts for an hour and 30 minutes. Coffee and refreshments are available before both services.
For children 0-5 years old, we have a fully-staffed nursery at both services. Children may be checked in up to 15 minutes before each service and can be picked up after the service concludes. Parents are welcome to visit their children in the nursery at any time.

Our Kids Quest Sunday program offers Biblical instruction, fellowship, and worship for school-age children. Children are dismissed during the first part of the service and follow the cross to Kids Quest. After the sermon and near the middle point of the service, the children return so they can participate in Communion with their families.  Click here for more about our children’s ministry

Children are always welcome to remain with their parents during the entire service.
