Who goes to Citychurch?
Walk into a one of our services , a guest would notice some young couples, some with children, some without, teens, some retired people, some black, some white, some middle-aged folks who own their own businesses and others who are out of work. In other words, those who come to Citychurch come from all backgrounds, all ages, some who have been a part of the church for years and many, many more are brand new. But they have one thing in common — they are seeking for the real deal —thinking and acting and living as Jesus’ would have them live.
What if I am not used to going to church?
That is most people, isn’t it? We at Citychurch know that almost everyone today is not “churchy” so we work hard at making it is friendly, safe, and honest.
So… what would the Citychurch worship services be like?
Well, the moment you walk through the doors, we want you to feel welcomed. We will give you a friendly greeting and our bulletin, and if there is time before the service would start, we would invite you to our reception area to enjoy a cup of coffee and a little morning snack. Fellowship with one another can help us get in the right place to fellowship with God. This is how it happens:
Prayer One of our greatest privileges as followers of Jesus is being able to pray directly to God. As we start our morning services, we typically spend a few minutes praying. If you feel comfortable praying over your family, you can. If there are issues that you would like one our leaders to pray over, we would be honored to serve you in that way. You’ll find them up front when the service is over.
Singing During the gathering, our worship team will lead us in a number of songs. Our worship leaders seek to balance new, original music with some of the great hymns of our faith. As we sing, the focus is on Jesus! So regardless of what you sound like, feel free to sing aloud with us.
Teaching The Bible is God’s gift to mankind! It shows us everything we need for life and death. The Bible unwraps the story of God playing out in human history. Every week a Pastor will teach straight from the Bible in a challenging and practical way. We encourage you to bring your Bible with you. If you do not have one, feel free to use (or take) one of ours.
Giving If you are our guest, please feel no obligation to give anything financially. We just ask that you place the guest information card in the basket as it is passed. During the time of response after the message, please feel free to give as God leads you.
What should I wear? At City church , you’re welcome to wear whatever you’d like. There is no set dress code, although the attire is more on the casual side. Just be you.
What about my kids? Our children’s ministry is fantastic! City Church is a family-friendly environment. We believe that children are a blessing from God and are a vital part of every local church. After worship children in the 5th grade and down go to our Childrens area where they receive age-appropriate teaching from an amazing team of adults. The environment is clean and safe. Each adult worker has completed a background check and is qualified to engage your child.
How can I connect with other people? Home groups provide that connection point. Home groups meet on a weekly basis and connect you with other men and women striving to follow Jesus. Make sure you stop by the HOME GROUPS TABLE in the foyer to get the information you need.
Can I invite my friends? Please do. We seek to be a welcoming environment for people who are curious about Christianity or who are seeking to belong to a community of believers.
