Going to a new place can be intimidating. To take some of the edge off, here's a bit of what you can expect when you visit City Church:
When you get to our campus downtown, you'll notice plenty of signs and volunteers to help you find a place to park your vehicle. You can expect to be greeted at the entrance where a volunteer will make sure you feel welcomed and seen as you and your family enter for worship.
As soon as you walk in, you'll probably see people from all sorts of different backgrounds and stages of life. Most people dress pretty casual, including our pastoral staff who wear jeans on most Sundays. People wear everything from shorts and flip flops to slightly more “dressy” clothes for some. The most important thing is that you wear what you are comfortable in.
Services are typically 65-75 minutes long. Every week, there will be music led by our band and a sermon our pastors work extremely hard to make deeply biblical, culturally relevant, and immediately applicable. We promise there won't be any weird moments you're asked to stand up and introduce yourself or anything like that!
Parents of young children are usually glad to know that they can take their children to the “City Kids” area of the building. A team of well-trained volunteers who have all been background checked for the safety and well-being of the children care for newborns through fifth graders, creatively teaching those who are old enough about Jesus. It’s our desire at City Kids to create a fun and engaging environment for kids to learn about Jesus with solid Biblical teaching by caring leaders. So while you are in the main worship service, your child will be participating in an engaging worship experience designed just for them, with age-appropriate teaching so that they can learn about Jesus on their level. The City Kids Main Entrance is located on the Market Street side of the church building, and there is a drop-off/pick-up area for your convenience.
Middle school students have their own program on Sunday mornings, but they begin their time in the main sanctuary at 9:15. After the first song, they head upstairs to the student room for the remainder of the service.
High School students have their own program on Sunday nights, and are encouraged to worship with the congregation on Sunday mornings.
SERVICES EVERY SUNDAY 9:15 & 11:00 AM
