What To Expect on Sunday

At FaithWestwood, you can expect:
  • A warm and friendly welcome at the door  -- it's our thing.
  • A friendly welcome and engagement online too -- our online hosts are there to greet you, share important scripture and links, and answer any questions you have
  • A casual, relaxed atmosphere -- ties or t-shirts -- whatever you're comfortable in, we are too.
  • A lot of friendship -- At FaithWestwood, we love to be together, and we love extending that same warmth to our visitors too. (Hopefully, you won't stay a visitor for long.)
  • A little refreshment -- be sure to grab a cup of coffee and a treat in fellowship hall

At FaithWestwood, per new CDC guidelines, wearing a mask is optional for vaccinated people when in the building and urged for those who are not vaccinated. We want everyone to feel comfortable when they worship with us, and we take the following additional precautions for both our congregation and our community:

  • Hand sanitizer is available in multiple locations.
  • Our water fountains are turned off -- be sure to bring your own drinks to enjoy during worship or grab a coffee before worship.
  • The west balcony seating area is reserved for those who want to wear masks and would prefer to sit only with other masked worshipers. 
  • And for sure, if you're not feeling well or showing symptoms associated with COVID on a Sunday, please join in the service through one of our online options: website, Facebook, or YouTube.

  • When you Arrive


    • You can enter our parking lot from either Oaks Lane to the east of the church or from Old L Street to the north.
    Where to Come In
    • Our main entrance faces east toward Oaks Lane -- it leads directly to our foyer, fellowship hall, and worship center
  • We love Kids

    Kids of all ages are welcome to worship with us! Early in the service, we have a dedicated Children's Time when kids enjoy a short message designed especially for them. If you'd prefer, there are opportunities for fun and socially distanced Sunday School at 10:45 too. Visit our Got Kids? page for more information.

  • In worship

    As you enter the worship center, an usher will greet you and, if you want, help you find a seat. Right now, we don't have programs, but you can look at our order of service on our website. Our services usually last a little over an hour.

  • Music

    The 9:00 a.m. service is relaxed, traditional worship with hymns, an organ, piano, and both vocal and bell choirs. The 10:45 a.m. service is casual and contemporary with a band leading the music. 

  • Message

    The Bible-based message is 30 minutes or less. If you would like a bible of your own to take home, please take one as our gift to you from the Connection Center located in the foyer. You can watch past messages on our website, app, or listen to our weekly podcast too.

  • Communion

    We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month. Currently, the Communion elements are available in individual, prepackaged cups, and all who put their faith in Jesus are welcome -- whether you're a partner in our church or any other church. If you would like to participate, the ushers will guide you.

  • Giving

    As our guest, we do not expect you to give anything at our offering time -- your presence is your gift to us. 

    For those who call FaithWestwood home, we take two collections -- one for our general Ministry Fund and another for our weekly Mission Focus. Both collections go in the same bucket at offering time.

  • After the service...

    ...be sure to greet Pastor Steve or one of the other team. Or visit the Connection Center, chat with a member of our Guest Connections team, or stop by the Welcome Center by the east entrance for more information.
