Whether you are new to Enid or just new to Willow View, we want you to feel at home and eager to share in the fellowship of Christian community found at Willow View Church. Read below, and please contact us if you have further questions.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Sunday worship services
We have two distinct Sunday morning worship experiences. The traditional service at 9:00 features hymns accompanied by piano. A praise team or our church choir participates in this service. People with lots of church experience are just as comfortable in this service as newcomers. The contemporary service at 11:00 is a high-energy experience led by a worship band. It features the same Scripture, sermon and prayers as the first service but uses more video and lighting changes for a more immersive worship experience. Make yourself comfortable. You’ll find clothing from jeans and shorts through classic business attire in both services, with the second service trending more casual. A typical service will last about 60 minutes.
For the youngest children, a professionally staffed nursery is available during all Sunday morning services and during some midweek activities. The nursery is located across from the worship center. Look for the overhead signs. Toddlers up through early elementary age may stay in Sunday morning worship for the first one-third of the service. At that time, Children’s Director Ashley Kiper will invite children to sit at the front of the church for a special children’s message. Following that message, children up to third grade are invited to go to the Family Life Center for “Children’s Church.” Staff and volunteers provide Bible-based age-appropriate music, video lessons, games and crafts for learning about God's love. Please let us know if your child has special needs as we seek to find ways to accommodate people of all needs and abilities.
WE WANT You TO FEEL AT HOME
Questions? Ask us.
When you enter Willow View, we encourage you to ask questions. Greeters will hand out bulletins and can answer most questions about the worship experience and the church. Staff is also available to assist with specific needs.
Sign a card
Every week we ask our congregation to fill out "Green and White Cards". These cards provide record of attendance and give an opportunity to share prayer requests with staff. These cards are available in the pew backs and are placed in the offering plates.
Grab a gift
Your first time in worship, please stop by the Welcome Center and grab a gift from our church. Also at the Welcome Center, you'll find information about upcoming church activities, coffee, donuts and devotionals.
Check out a discipleship community or other activities on our calendar and get connected.
We believe in the power of prayer
Let’s face it, we’re not going to make it through this life alone. We need God. We need to talk with God — and that’s prayer! God hears your prayers and is ready to help. Faithful prayer is incredibly powerful. We believe in it. We practice it regularly. Consistent prayer releases the power of God's blessing on your life and your circumstances. Many people turn or return to the church when they are in need of prayer … and we want to help. Let us know your prayer concerns, and Willow View will engage others in appealing to God on your behalf. We’ll meet with you, if desired, or help you in your search for answers. Feel free to fill out the form below, or give us a call.
Prayer is both simple and profound. Here’s what the Bible says: Matthew 21:22 "And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith." Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Colossians 4:2 "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."
Every few months, we offer Willow View Welcome for newer guests. It is an introduction to life at our church. Following Sunday lunch, you will take a tour around the building, learn the history of Willow View, and get the chance to learn about ministries that will serve and impact your family. Contact our church office to register for this meal.
