We’re delighted you are considering attending Christ United Methodist Church! Please know you are welcome among us. Be sure to pick up a special gift bag we have prepared for our first-time worship guests that includes gift items as well as information about our Church. Below are some frequently asked questions that might be helpful and put you at ease during your time with us.

Questions you might have:

Q:  Which entrance do I use? 

A:    You’re welcome to enter either entrance: Door 1 is marked by a big Welcome sign. Door 2 leads to the Family Life Center. The advantage of going through our “Welcome” door is that you will go into The Gathering Place

Q:  What is The Gathering Place?

A:  This is our hospitality area. As you enter, you will be greeted by one of our volunteers who will assist you in finding the Family Life Center –where we worship– or help you with any questions you may have. This is also where you can enjoy a variety of food items and coffee offered between 10 and 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings. You are welcome to bring your food into the worship center.

Q:   Which Worship Service would be best for me to attend? 

A:  Your choice: The 9 a.m. blended service offers a variety of both traditional and contemporary worship and music styles. The 10:30 a.m. contemporary service offers contemporary music with some hymns played in a fresh and new way. One benefit of this service is that it offers a concurrent, VBS-style children’s ministry for kids beginning at age 4 and goes up through 6th grade. Childcare with Christian instruction is also offered for infants through age 3 in the 10:30 a.m. service.

Q:  Do you offer childcare at the 9:00 a.m. service?

A:  Yes.  During the 9 a.m. service we invite children that are infants through age 5 to attend the nursery where we also provide some Christian programming.

Q: How do I know my children are safe?

A: We are a Safe Sanctuaries Congregation. Our nursery and children’s workers are trained and screened including background checks.

A:  Are my children welcome to stay with me during the worship time. 

Q: Absolutely. Either way is totally fine. We also offer some tables in the back of our worship space for families with small children so that the children can engage in quiet activities that we provide in our children’s worship packs.

Q:  Where is the Sanctuary?

A:  Currently we worship in a Family Life Center, which can also be converted back into a gym when needed.

Q:  What type clothing do people wear?

A:  Mostly casual, but everything from dress to shorts and t-shirts.

Q:  Where is the church located?

A:  Christ United Methodist is located at 318 North Union Street, Westfield IN.

Q:  Where do I park? 

A:  You will find parking in front and to the north of the church facility.

Q:  How can I get involved?

A:    We have many ways for you to get involved: We have a large variety of small groups and even a few Sunday School classes. We offer new group startups quite regularly so that you can try them out and see if it’s a good fit. We have ministry teams as well. We would really encourage you to get involved in a small group and a ministry. The best ministries for you to get involved initially include the following: Our hospitality ministries, singing or playing an instrument on the contemporary worship band, or our technology ministry.
