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.


As Larry mentioned in last Sunday’s message, the Community Bible Readings are designed to help us focus on knowing God. Pastor James Merritt  of Cross Pointe Church in Duluth, Georgia made the insightful observation that “the primary purpose of reading the Bible is not to know the Bible but to know God.”   

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

April 23 — Jer 6, 1 Cor 13;  
April 24 — Jer 7, 1 Cor 14;  
April 25— Jer 8, 1 Cor 15;  
April 26 — Jer 9, 1 Cor 16;
April 27 — Jeremiah 10, 2 Cor 1;
April 28 — Psalm 119:49-72.   

Remember, if you wish to share your thoughts and questions on the Bible, contact the church office to hook with an individual or an on-line text group (

This week our Men’s Group will be meeting at the church on Tuesday night at 6:30 PM. We will review the most recent Sunday message! 

The LEGACY youth ministry continues to grow. It meets at the church on Thursday's from 6:30-8:30pm. All teens between grades 6-12 are invited! 


The great promise that the Lord Jesus gave us when he said that he would build His church.  Yet he also told us to take the gospel to the whole world.  As the Lord’s people, we should recognize that the Lord want to use us, no matter how weak we may see ourselves, to accomplish His work.  If you are sensing that the Holy Spirit is stirring you to a greater level of service, inquire at the church office (570) 323-9847 / email: to learn of possible ministry opportunities. 

Last week we began a new series on “Prayers to Pray Before Church.”  This week is a prayer for the Lord to reveal to you the wonders of the Word.  “Father, you spoke the world into existence (Genesis 1). You speak new life into your children to give us the light of the knowledge of your glory in Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6). Give us the grace to receive your Word and rejoice in it (Psalm 119:18). Convict us of our sins and Christ’s sufficiency so that sinners would be converted (John 16:7–11), the weak strengthened, and Christ’s body built up. In Jesus Name — Amen.”
