In this post-COVID world, we all need connection and belonging more than ever, so City Church has built that right into our Sunday morning schedule! Come for worship at 9:30; then stay for full programming of all ages for our second hour of Sunday Morning Communities. The first half of our time is spent getting to know others in a comfortable, relaxed way, and the second half is spent digger deeper into issues of faith through discussion and inter-active teaching. We invite you into the rhythm of worship and then Sunday Morning Communities. Read the descriptions below and contact Amy Rowell with any questions.
9:30 Worship (CityKids for birth – 5 years old on Lower Level)

Adult Sunday Morning Communities
Adults may choose from one of three groups, all offered on the Main Level. Groups are roughly along generational lines, but you have freedom to choose where you would like to attend. Feel free to visit any group, though we hope eventually you will land in one so you have opportunity to develop relationships with others.

Sunday Morning Communities is discussing the series The Art of Neighboring by Dave Runyon and Jay Pathak, in preparation for our sermon series on Evangelism/The Book of Jonah in March. Discussion in each community will include the same community-building time you have come to look forward to, watching a brief (no more than 10 minute) video, and then lots of time for discussing how in fact we can be good neighbors and take Jesus’ words of “loving our neighbor” seriously. You can access these videos from your Right Now Media account by clicking the City Church logo at the top bar with our curated list. Need an account? Register for free here: https://app.rightnowmedia.org/join/citychurchmpls. As a reminder, below are room assignments for each of our three groups. Groups are roughly split along generational lines, but you choose your group.
Early childhood classes (for kids age 0-kindergarten) will be offered during both the worship service and the Community group hour. Children age 0-kindergarten are welcome to attend either or both hours on Sunday morning.
Elementary programming will be offered during the Community group hour (at 10:45). Children in grades 1-3 will continue their journey through Scripture together with fun, engaging activities to help them dive into God’s Word together and to build relationships with one another.
We will be launching a new programming for children in 4th and 5th grades. This will be an opportunity for them to build relationships with each other and to dive deeper into God’s Word together. They will discover the answers to basic theological questions such as “Who is God?” “Why do I need a redeemer?” and “What is the Trinity?”. Our goals are to help kids to become more grounded in their faith, to grow in their relationship with God, to build strong relationships with their peers, and to be equipped to think biblically.
During the 10:45 hour, all Citykids groups (preschool age-5th grade) will gather together for a brief portion of the hour for music and community-building activities. We hope to see you at Citykids!
Velocity (6th-12th grade) will meet downstairs in the Great Room. We will be taking a deeper dive into Scripture to learn the foundations of the Christian Faith. We will also have more in-depth discussion time both about the content we are studying and what is going on in our lives.
Plan to join us as together we build the bonds of a strong and healthy church!
