If you are interesting in visiting Spotswood West for the first time, we want you to know that we would be honored to have you as our guest. We have new people at our church every week. We want you to be as comfortable as possible, so we have put together some information to help make your first visit enjoyable.
Where is the church?
We are so excited to be meeting at Ni River Middle School (11632 Catharpin Rd, Spotsylvania, VA 22553).
What time should I be there?
From 9-10A, we have Connect Groups for all ages – for kids, teens, and adults!
From 10:15-11:30A, we gather for worship in the Ni River Middle School auditorium.
Connect Groups and Worship last about an hour each.
Our nursery (up to age 4) is open in all services. If you have a child over the age of 4, we would love for them to join you and your family in the worship service!
Where should I go once I get there?
When you pull into Ni River Middle School, you’ll notice plenty of spaces reserved for you in the left parking lot. Park there, and head to the pop-up tent at the entrance of the school! Someone will greet you there with a smile and a gift, answer any questions you have, and walk with you to make sure you get where you need to go! If you have children, they will help you get your kids checked in, and then make sure you get where you need to go – either to a connect group or the worship service!
What do you do for kids?
Our Kids ministry is designed for children birth–grade 5. We create safe, high-energy environments for kids to connect with other children & adults with the goal of helping them begin a relationship with Jesus & become more like Him. Our staff & volunteers have had background clearances prior to serving within our children’s ministry.
For more detailed information about our children’s ministry, head over to our West Kids page!
Is there a youth ministry?
Yes! We have a thriving youth ministry for students grades 6-12. They meet just outside the school gym for connect groups on Sunday mornings, and have fun events on at least a monthly basis! And early in 2020, we will be launching our midweek gathering!
What should I wear?
Some churches are very formal & others are very loose. At SpotswoodWest, we are somewhere in the middle. Our worship services have structure to them, but they are not rigid. People dress in a variety of clothing styles ranging from dresses and slacks to jeans. In the summer, it is not uncommon for people to wear shorts. The bottom line is that we don’t want people worrying about the external issues that people often focus on when they go to church.
Can I attend if I'm ____________?
Some of us fear coming to church because of our past, our current lifestyle or our life situation. At SpotswoodWest, we seek to be a place where anyone (honestly everyone) can come as they are with the expectation that Jesus will transform us into who He wants us to be. Join us and let’s seek Jesus together!
