Spiritual formation for the Christian basically refers to the Spirit-driven process of forming the inner world of the human self in such a way that it becomes like the inner being of Christ himself.
— Dallas Willard

Christian discipleship is holistic - involving our whole personhood (mind, body, soul) and shaping all our activity (thoughts, words, deeds) in every sphere of life (domestic, vocational, social, personal). In addition to our habits of worship, community, and service, consider cultivating a life of discipleship through the following offerings:


adult education

We offer a variety of educational opportunities for adults who want to learn more about the Bible, theology, and the Christian life. Sunday classes meet regularly at 9:15am at our UCity site. Special classes, workshops, and discussion groups are offered on evenings and weekends several times a year.

To cultivate a life of prayer in the City Church community, we encourage the use of daily resources such as the Daily Office and Pray As You Go, which help make our personal prayers more consistent, formative, and connected to the prayers of the global Church. We also provide prayer guides for community groups and seasonal prayer guides in Advent and Lent, as well as occasional prayer retreats for spiritual renewal and growth.    


Faith & work

We believe that our work matters to God and that our relationship to Christ should shape the way we approach our work. At City Church, we are committed to growing as disciples of Christ who see our work as a primary way that we participate with God in his mission of restoring life, justice, wholeness, and peace to his world. In addition to addressing matters of faith and work regularly in our sermons and community groups, we also offer occasional topical seminars and vocation-specific workshops, led by experienced practitioners in that field: healthcare, education, business, the arts, academia, etc.
