Just a few things this week... *NEW*

Volunteers for Nursery & Children's Worship We're always on the lookout for volunteers to help with nursery care (babies and toddlers, ages 0 to 3) and Children's Worship (ages 4 to 2nd grade) during our regular services. Volunteers typically serve every 6 weeks. If you're interested in helping out, contact Jennifer Murphy at jennifer [at]

Mercy Fund -- THIS SUNDAY This Sunday we will be taking contributions to our Mercy Fund. The Mercy Fund is kept separate from our regular budget and is used to provide financial support to members of our congregation and community who are in need. Please prayerfully consider what you might be willing to contribute.


STEP Pride for Parents Christmas Store STEP (Strategies to Elevate People) will hold it’s 21st annual STEP Pride for Parents Christmas Store on Saturday, December 3rd at Eternity Church (1900 Chamberlayne Avenue). We hope to have a small group from City Church volunteer at the event itself, greeting children and parents from Gilpin Court. If you are willing to donate a new, unwrapped gift for STEP’s Christmas Store, please bring it to church on November 20th or 27th and leave it in the designated box at the front of the church. Email Lauren Massey at lbmassey [at] if you’re interested in volunteering. City Church Forum -- 12/1 Our next installment of City Church Forum will take place on Thursday, December 1st from 7:30 to 9pm at the Joel House at Beth Ahabah (1123 W. Franklin Street). Katie Nienow, the Director of Development for Hope International, will speak on the topic of ‘Your Money and Your Heart’–a particularly relevant subject for consideration during the holiday rush of spending and consumption.

City Church Basics — 12/16 & 12/17 The next session of City Church Basics is scheduled for December 16th and 17th. Church Basics explains who we are as a church and what it means to be a member. It is a necessary step towards formally joining the church, although membership is not required. If you’re planning on taking part in this next session, please RSVP to Val Catrow at val [at] If you have additional questions, contact Erik at erik [at]

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
