City Church is a community committed to growing in our life of joy and peace through communion with God in Christ. God uses many means to form his children into his likeness. As a church family, City Church focuses on eight practices that Christians historically have embraced for their growth. As you read through the list of practices, some you already engage, and others may be less familiar. You do not need to begin all eight practices at once. Start by choosing one or two that are new to you, and add them to your life. Let us help you get started as an individual or a family.
1. Common Worship
We gather together weekly to worship God and, through His Spirit, re-center our lives in Jesus Christ. Rather than viewing this time as a retreat from the “real world,” we believe that the gathered worship of the church is the most real moment of our week - that which shapes our understanding and experience of all the other moments of our lives. Join us for worship at City Church on Sundays.
5. Sabbath & Retreat
We rest from our work and celebrate our new life in Jesus Christ through regular habits of Sabbath. In retreat, we pull away for a short time to reflect upon our relationship with God, with ourselves, and with others. City Church offers several types of retreats: womens, mens, prayer.
Upcoming Retreats for 2018-19 TBA
8. Fasting & Feasting
Fasting is a discipline to help us live in light of God’s kingdom rather than our own. It helps free us from the allurement of the world and draw us deeper into fellowship with God. Fasting is not about giving up a meal and remaining in a state of absence. Rather, it’s seeking to be filled by God, more than food. It’s not primarily about absence, but presence. Through fasting we refrain from physical food, in order to be filled by spiritual food- Word of God and prayer. Fasting is feasting upon God’s deep love.
