Worship

Sunday Mornings

There are many ways to worship. Everything Church of the Western Reserve does relates to worship in one form or another. We worship God through our educational offerings, music, missions, events and fellowship. We believe worship is 24×7.
Nowhere is worship more front and center than Sunday mornings. That is where one church week ends and a new one begins.

What They Say

The Sunday morning experience at our church that always offers a spiritual message that resonates with me on a personal leve. I can’t help but be inspired by the unexpected quality and variety of the music. But really it’s the many opportunities throughout the week that we can choose from to get to know new neighbors and friends that keeps me coming back to Church of the Western Reserve.

Christian fellowship, spiritual growth and healing. The weekly sermons, music, and gatherings have brought food to my soul and body more than any I have encountered. Come join us and enjoy the gifts of the spirit!

Church of the Western Reserve feeds my soul, strengthens my faith and helps me to be more of the person Christ wants me to be. But it is the music of our church that sends my heart soaring. We are blessed to have Alexandre Marr leading our congregation not only with his God given talent as a pianist and vocalist but also as a spiritual leader. Our sanctuary is filled with songs of praise and adoration by our choir and bell choir along with vocalist, instrumentalist and special programs that enhance the presence of Christ in our midst.

We love the friendly, caring atmosphere of Church of the Western Reserve. The music is especially inspiring. But above all, our pastor’s teachings and sermons speak to each of us, weekly, about some timely aspect of our personal lives. Her focus on Jesus and his love is the soul of her ministry. CWR became our church home 5 years ago and we are very happy there.
