WELCOME TO CHURCH OF THE WAY
Whether you've been attending church for years, or haven't been to church in a while, or perhaps have never been to church, we hope you'll come and join us Sunday if you're looking for a church in Tampa.
For 70 + years, we've been helping spread God's good news here in Tampa and throughout the world, and we pray that God will continue to use our congregation.
When you come to join us for the first time,
one of our greeters will be glad to help you become comfortable. If you'd like, they'll help you find the children's church & nursery (which is fully staffed and safely run), restrooms, sanctuary and, of course, coffee & pastries at Cafe' Connect before the service.
During the service,
you'll hear our faith expressed in the songs we sing, prayers we offer up and our pastor's preaching. All parts of our service are grounded in the Bible, which we are committed to upholding. At Church of The Way, we help people to connect with God through worship environments, connect with one another through small groups, and connect with the community through outreach.
After the service
we have our next tract orientation classes called Jump Start, which is every Sunday at 11:45 AM (except any month with a fifth Sunday). First time attenders will learn who we are and what we believe, as well as how to connect, and how to determine their spiritual gifts.
No matter what your Christian background is (or isn't), we hope you'll join us on Sunday. Here at Church of The Way, you'll find people of all sizes, stripes and colors, and we welcome everyone. Our services start at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday.
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works."
At Church of The Way, we have a simple hope: to see people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their Christian faith. Our ministries come in all shapes and sizes. Please come and join us for worship.
Our Children's ministry allows children to hear and rejoice while learning about the good news of Jesus Christ. We seek to create a fun and loving environment for all Children. Children's ministry is available for all ages each Sunday morning at 10:30 am. Nursery is also provided for all services each Sunday morning.
Feeding our Community
Although we are a small church, the Pantry Outreach team (Table in The Wilderness) provides monthly food for at least 30 families. The food is never expired, is purchased from Sam's Club and other grocery stores, and distributes the grocery bags to our neighbors in need every third Saturday of every month. The food is distributed, with literature about our church & about our God, & with prayer in front of the church at 1712 E Busch Blvd, Tampa, Fl, 33612 beginning at 11AM.
Once per month a team of dedicated church members get together on the campus to maintain the upkeep, paint, dust, and do a general cleaning. At CTW we believe that first impressions are important, and so we gather together and tackle projects outlined by the Directort of Buildings & Grounds.
REFLEX - Youth Group
REFLEX is CTW's youth ministry, led by Pastor Derrick and his wife Courtney. They meet every Friday evening at 6PM for prayer, youth service, discipleship, Bible Studies, games, fellowship, and Christian bonding.
As an obedience to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), our small group network is part of our method for making disciples, and teaching them to obey the Word of God
Singers & Musicians
The worship team is the heart our fellowship. This teams leads the entire church in praise & worship. The lead singer is the Director of the team, and musicians & singers are both wanted & needed. Band rehearsals are every Thursday evening at 6pm.
