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.

For much of man’s history, having Scriptures available in your own language and in your own home was a very rare privilege.  For those who have trouble getting motivated in Bible reading, ask yourself these questions, “What would I do if I did not have a Bible?  What would I do if it were illegal to own one?  Could I live with just the Scriptures that are inscribed on my heart?” 

This week’s Community Bible Readings (CBR), begins the book of Jeremiah and continues through 1 Corinthians. 

April 16 — Jer 1, 1 Cor 8; 
April 17 — Jer 2, 1 Cor 9; 
April 18 — Jer 3, 1 Cor 10; 
April 19 — Jer 4, 1 Cor 11;
April 20 — Jeremiah 5, 1 Cor 12;
April 21 — Psalm 119:25-48

 Remember, if you wish to share your thoughts and questions on the Bible, check out ways to get involved with our church community!

Since we will be discussing the Sunday message, be sure to listen on the church’s website! 

As usual, the LEGACY youth ministry meets at the church on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30pm. All teens between grades 6-12 are invited!

A review of the “This Week at Citychurch” from one year ago showed a desperate appeal for volunteers! As great as the need was then, it is much greater now.  Even if you can only serve one Sunday every other month, please consider helping with CityKidz (all ages), offering, cafe, or greeting (particularly outside parking attendants).  There is also a need for general maintenance assistance around the church during the week and weekends.  Please inquire at the church office (570) 323-9847 / email: info@citychurchpa.org.

We are going to begin a new series on “Prayers to Pray Before Church.”  This week is a prayer to worship God with an undistracted heart:  “Heavenly Father, this morning—and all of history—is about you. Please help me worship you with an undistracted heart. You know how my mind wanders to my upcoming week, with thoughts of problems, people, and it seems a million other things.  Help me put those thoughts away and focus on you and your glory. Would your Spirit cause my heart, soul, mind, and strength to exalt your Holy Name in my singing, listening to Your Word, and interacting with all those that I meet this morning. In Jesus Name — Amen.”
