common questions

Here you'll find the answers to some of the questions get asked the most. If there's anything else you'd like to know that we haven't covered here feel free to contact us anytime through our contact page.


1.  What are your weekend services like?

We view Sunday mornings as the time to bring your friends and family to hear about the life-changing love of Jesus. That means our Sundays are unapologetically focused on people who are not a part of our church yet. From the time you pull in our parking lot to when you leave you’ll know there are people who love you exactly the way you are.

Each weekend at City North you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with inspiring, fresh worship music and a practical, relevant message. You’ll also find a printed outline for notes in your worship guide that will help you make the most of each week’s teaching. Children are well-cared for in a loving, quality nursery and fun-filled City North service. Most of all you’ll find a community of imperfect people pursuing a perfect God. You won’t have to put on a fake face, pretend you’re something you’re not, or feel judged, because we're all on the same journey together.

2.  What will happen when I visit for the first time?

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for awhile—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.

3.  What should I wear to attend your services?

You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our Weekend Services. Come in what is comfortable for you, because we care far more about you than what you wear.

4.  Where are you located?

We hold our weekend services at Genoa Middle School, 5948 S. Old 3C Highway, Westerville, OH 43082.

5.  What about my children?

At City North Church your children are a top priority. For children from birth through fifth grade we'll have age-appropriate environments every Sunday morning to ensure you can enjoy our Sunday morning services. City North Kids has three key goals each week. They are that your children will be safe, secure, and have fun. Every City North Kids volunteer will be trained and background checked to ensure the safety of your child. 

We believe the best thing we can do is focus on doing a few things with excellence , rather than many things marginally well. So at this time City North Church does not have an operational student ministry, but that's not to say there's nothing for your students in grades 6-12. Your teenagers will find our Sunday morning services exciting, engaging, and applicable to their lives. In time we will launch a student ministry, but that will only happen once we believe we can do it with the utmost level of excellence without sacrificing what we're doing on Sunday mornings.

6.  How can I meet others and get connected?

There are many ways to get involved! You can begin by attending our Growth Track. Another great way to get connected is in a small group. In each of these, you can build friendships, learn more about the life of our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your faith.

7.  How can I be discipled and grow?

Our desire is to see you become a fully-devoted follower of Christ, living a life of fulfillment and purpose. The Growth Track offers the tools necessary to make this happen in your life. You can begin the process at any step in the Growth Track.

8.  Why do you have small groups?

Small groups are an essential part of City North Church; in fact, you haven’t fully experienced the church until you’ve experienced our small groups. Groups allow you to connect relationally in a way that will spur your relationship with God forward. As City North Church grows, groups allow us to “stay small” and connected. Groups are available for all ages and interests—there’s bound to be one that’s just right for you. Learn more about why we’re big on small groups, or get connected to a group by visiting our Small Groups page.

9.  What denomination are you a part of?

We are a non-denominational church. We don't think there is anything wrong with a part of a denomination; it's just not who we are. To find out more about what we believe and our structures you can visit the Our Leadership page, or come be a part of the Growth Track.
