Group Life @ City Church

All groups offer welcoming spaces where we hope you can connect more deeply with yourself, others and God. Most groups will spark conversations using a mixture of the sermon study guide and seasonal resources. Some are more specific about their focus. Find one near your neighborhood or workplace and know your presence matters as we pursue growth and faith together in our lives and our city.

Relationships In-ten(s/t)+ion
Fridays 6:30-8:30pm @ Inner Richmond: 7th Ave & Fulton - Erica & Jay Nunez
“Are you bored in your most important relationships? Are you tired of swiping left on your Tinder account?

We want to explore our obstacles together and be open to vulnerability and change. Join us as we learn to practice grace and learn new habits to meaningfully connect with others.”

Moms Ministries for All Moms

  • Wednesday 10am Moms’ Group (book discussion & childcare)
  • Friday morning playdates

  • quarterly family outings

“Moms Ministries bless moms so that they can bless their family. Neither our parenting nor our faith are best tried alone! If you are a new mom, know that you will be surrounded by support and wisdom. If you have been a mom for longer, know that your advice and example are invaluable.”

LGBTQ Group*
Tuesday 7pm @ Bernal Heights & Mission (Rotates) - Micah Ikemire

Spirituality and the Twelves Steps*
Time & date TBD - Tyrone Kelly | Mike Stein
Have you ever found yourself repeating patterns of behavior over and over expecting different results? Do you long to get beyond your closely held idols and illusions about yourself and cultivate a more honest, free inner life connected to God? Join this reflection group based on Richard Rohr’s Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps.

Religious Trauma Reflection Group*
Time & date TBD - Melisa Blankenship
All churches are a reflection of the people that we are—beautiful and broken. However, sometimes we find ourselves in churches that cross the line, isolate its people, shame or humiliate its members as a way of keeping them in line, or that draw out our painful pasts only to use those details against us. When this is done by those in leadership, it’s called spiritual abuse. If this describes a painful past you’ve experienced, let us know. We’re assessing whether there’s a need to form a reflection group to work through this particular kind of pain and betrayal.

Artists’ Group*
Sundays (monthly) 7pm @ Chestnut & Mason - Minna Choi
“This is a fellowship group for professionally minded artists and musicians across any field or genre. Although sponsored by City Church, this group is open to artists of all faith and backgrounds. We typically share dinner for 90 minutes and share work together for 90 minutes. Dinners are announced in advance and require an RSVP.”

Newbigin 2.0*
Wednesdays (monthly) 7pm @ TBD Location - Elizabeth Marshman | Andrew Van Til
“For alumni/ae of the Newbigin Fellowship, this will be a monthly book-club style gathering. It will offer a great opportunity to continue the pursuit of biblical and theological growth and spiritual development for the good of the city in the context of community.”
