We know that attending a new church — or any new environment, for that matter — can be a little unsettling… so let me put your mind at ease. When you visit West End our desire is that you’ll be greeted by a friendly face but never made to feel uncomfortable. We would love for you to join us for a Sunday worship service and see for yourself what makes West End such a unique church. You’ll find more information below on what to expect to help make your first visit a great one. And when you do visit, please introduce yourself after the service — we look forward to meeting you. —Carter Crenshaw, Senior Pastor
What time are your services?
We have two services at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. During the first service, children’s ministry is offered from nursery through third grade. During the second service, we have learning opportunities for all ages, with children’s ministry offered from nursery through sixth grade as well as Jr. and Sr. High gatherings. Children are always welcome to join adults in the worship service, whatever you prefer!
What is it like?
Our services are designed primarily with Christians in mind, but those who are searching for answers or investigating Christianity will feel respected and included. Our music includes a wide range of modern worship songs and hymns.
What should I wear?
Like our music selection, dress is varied. Some wear jeans and sneakers; some wear button downs or dresses. You'll feel at ease in whatever you feel comfortable wearing.
Where do I go when I get there?
Drive up the hill and signs will direct you where to park. Once you come in the front entrance, you’ll see a large Info Desk where we’ve got folks who’d love to greet you & answer any questions you might have. You can also head down the hallway to grab a cup of coffee before going into the gym for the worship service.
Where do I take my kids?
When you walk in the front entrance you’ll see an Info Desk sign ― head there and our volunteers will help you get your kids (from infant through 6th grade) checked in for Children’s Ministry classes. Then, you’ll get to walk them to their classroom, meet their teachers, and get them settled before you head to the worship service. Check out our Children’s Ministry page for more information on curriculum, schedule, and FAQs. Children are always welcome to join you in the worship service, whatever you prefer.
Where do my middle & high school students go?
7th through 12th graders are part of the youth group at WECC. They attend first service with their parents then head down to the Hanger for their Sunday morning program. The Hanger is the first building you see on the right when driving up the hill. Check out the Youth page to learn more about curriculum, events, and leaders.
