This Week at City Church

At Citychurch, everything revolves around our one sentence purpose statement: To extend the glory of God by making disciples through the gospel of Jesus Christ.  
This vision translates for us into three key values; gospelcommunity, and mission
Our weekly updates are designed to keep this focus.

One of the blessings of daily Bible readings is as Augustine once wrote, “The Holy Scriptures are our letters from home.”   This week’s Community Bible Readings (CBR) are:

Jan 29 — Isaiah 12, Luke 21; 
Jan 30— Isaiah 13, Luke 22; 
Jan 31 — Isaiah 14, Luke 23;
Feb 1— Isaiah 15, Luke 24;
Feb 2 — Isaiah 16, John 1 (read twice :); and
Feb 3 — Psalm 109. 

Do you want to share your thoughts or from others on these readings?  Contact the church office to sign up for a text group.  

At City Church, we believe that the Sunday message is one of the primary means of grace that the Lord ministers to His people.  We will be discussing the Sunday message during our upcoming home meetings.  Anyone who misses church or is involved in ministry activity during the message can listen to the message online by accessing the church’s website or the church app: Citychurchpa.

Citychurch is part of the Acts 29, which is a network of churches that plant churches.  We are praying this week for a partner church, Grace Chapel in Durban, South Africa pastored by Sihle Xulu.  Sihle spoke at Citychurch on October 3rd of last year.  His church is also working with a young man named Bruce who is part of the Acts 29 Academy (a pastoral training program in Africa), who has plans to plant a church in Zimbabwe.  May God bless the work of Sihle and his pastoral trainee, Bruce. Below is a picture of Bruce as he just completed his January theological training which City Church is paying for his tuition!
