City Church Kids Need You

In case you missed the Stories of God At Work this past Sunday, meet Liz Aleman. Six months after she started attending City Church, she began volunteering in the nursery to care for infants and enable parents to attend worship. She loved the chance it gave her to meet families, know kids' names, and grow her own sense of belonging to this intergenerational church community. Years later, Liz' friend asked her to consider serving as a greeter in the children's ministry, which now gives her rich opportunities to revisit the foundation of her ...

Who We Are: Renewal

We are ending our series on "Who We Are" with a look at one of the most important words in the life of City Church: Renewal. Our mission, as you know by now, is to follow Christ to renew the city. But what does it mean to follow Christ in renewal? How is God renewing us in order to be part of this work? We'll take a look at those and other questions as we walk through the activities we engage in that we believe lead to renewal for the church, for our own lives, and for our city. Within this post, there is a brief survey for you to take ...

Who We Are: Counseling Center

As we get close to wrapping up our Who We Are blog series, we wanted to spend some time with City Church's Counseling Center. Laura Turner sat down with Jay Wilson, director of the Counseling Center, to talk about how the Counseling Center got started, why City Church is a great home for the work they do, and how to get connected with a counselor. The Counseling Center got started at City Church in 2009. Who was involved in getting it up and running? That year, Chuck DeGroat came on staff at City Church. City Church was in the third year ...

This Year During Lent: A Message from Fred Harrell

The season of Lent began yesterday with Ash Wednesday, the day at the outset of our journey on which we remember that we are dust, and to dust we shall return. As a church, we will journey together during Lent in some unique ways at this time, reminding ourselves that we participate in this time of waiting and introspection not only with our minds and spirits but with our bodies as well. Take a couple of minutes and watch this video of Rev. Fred Harrell explaining what that will look like at City Church, and why.     Join in the ...
