Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind. We meet every Monday night at 6pm! Hereʼs what you can expect:
6pm dinner is served! Join us for a time of great fellowship and great free food!
7pm Large Group time! Large Group is designed for you to set aside the busyness and stress of the outside world by entering into a time of prayer, praise and worship, testimony and teaching!
8pm breakout into Small Groups. Our open share small groups provides a safe place for you to connect with other Celebrate Recovery attendees.
There's nothing that replaces a close group that meets to share life together - the celebrations, the disappointments, and everything in between. Accountability groups are for those who want guidance and support along their spiritual journey. True friends care enough to ask tough questions and give honest answers.
Here at CWC our goal is to provide a warm and safe environment where children can come and learn about Jesus. We believe that we are raising children to be the hands and feet of Jesus and we love teaching them the foundational principles of having a relationship with Jesus. We have a room for your child, any age, 0-5th grade! They will be loved on and greeted with a warm smile.

Teens are a vibrant, vital part of the church. We value teaching our teens how to navigate the changing culture while keeping them grounded in their identity in Jesus Christ. We value creating unity and an atmosphere of vulnerability while having fun and playing many nerf wars and eating yummy snacks! There is a seat for you every Sunday night 6-8pm.

Trail Life USA is a Church-Based, Christ-Centered, Boy-Focused mentoring and discipleship journey that speaks to the heart of a boy. Established on timeless values derived from the Bible and set in the context of outdoor adventure, boys from Kindergarten through 12th grade are engaged in a Troop setting by male mentors where they are challenged to grow in character, understand their purpose, serve their community, and develop practical leadership skills to carry out the mission for which they were created.
American Heritage Girls
American Heritage Girls is a Christ-centered character and leadership development program for girls, 5 to 18 years of age. AHG is dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country.
Life is better when you go through it with friends! That’s what we love about our young adults group. They meet weekly and dive into the Word, pray for each other and occasionally do Escape Rooms and bowling together. We would love for anyone in their 20's or 30's to join us, Sunday nights from 6-7pm.
In 2020, we burned our mortgage! Yep! God has helped us to become a debt-free church! We praise Him! For years, we have worked hard to get out of debt and give at least 10% of our budget to missions! We invest 5% of our budget to incredible local ministries like Fostering Further, Heartbeats, Seven Baskets and Vertical 196. We also have a thriving Benevolence ministry, where we are blessed to come alongside our neighbors by helping to lighten their financial strain with fuel cards, groceries, utility bills, and most recently, bikes! We also invest 5% of our budget in foreign missions. Our pastors, Nathan and Jade Metz, served as missionaries with their 4 children in East Africa for 7 years. Their experience has helped to shape the way we invest in our missionaries around the world. We deeply invest in our missionaries through prayer support, frequent check-ins, personal gifts and get-to-know-you events when our missionaries visit. We are honored to partner with missionaries from Global Partners and World Gospel Mission. We also support The Dignity Project in Uganda, East Africa. For many in Uganda, disposable sanitary products are simply not affordable. Women are forced to use ineffective and often harmful alternatives. Young ladies frequently miss school and humiliation burdens them every month. The Dignity Project is providing hope in the face of this basic need.
We are so blessed to be a Hope Landing partner! In 2021, Fostering Further purchased an apartment building to provide a safe place for young adults, who have aged out of foster care, to call home for the season when they need it. In 2021, we renovated and adopted one of the apartments. Every month we invest funds in Hope Landing to help keep the operations going. We are also actively involved in the upkeep of the apartment. Before each new tenant arrives, CWC volunteers deep clean and stock the apartment with dozens of "Welcome Home" items. When our young adult arrives, their apartment is fully equipped with everything they could possibly need! From pots and pans, toothbrushes and toothpaste, a pantry full of food, trashcans and brooms, to a perfectly made bed to collapse in. We praise God for allowing us to serve youth in this way who are aging out of foster care!
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritanʼs Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. These shoeboxes provide a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. We are blessed to not only fill these boxes ourselves but to be a Drop-Off location in Licking County!
CWC Students Scripture Memory Challenge
Memorizing Scripture is a great way to grow closer to God and allows us to have gospel truths ready at all times! Jesus tells us that we must love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and that we must love our neighbors as ourselves. Love isn't just a feeling, it's an action! Love does! Every quarter, we challenge our CWC students to memorize scripture, and in their honor we give to a charity! We've purchased boots and socks for our homeless neighbors in Licking County, blessed families in Uganda with goats and equipped vulnerable teen girls with feminine hygiene products. Itʼs awesome to see our students memorizing Godʼs Word in such a creative way!
Meeting every Thursday, this ministry provides quilts and blankets for those in our church community. They also partner with ministries overseas to provide dresses and clothes for those in need. Sewing Sisters are a supportive, encouraging group that cares for those in the hospitals, nursing homes, on bed rest at home or in the middle of a major life event.
