Women’s Fall Bible Studies: Ladies, we are excited for you to join us this fall as we study the Psalms together.

Childcare is available during the Wednesday study for $10 per child/maximum $20 per family. Please contact Meg Haden ( with questions. Register for your study of choice (and childcare, if needed) here.

Cultivating Communities of Mercy Seminar (additional childcare info): Extending our friendship to those in difficult circumstances can feel challenging when we try to do it alone, apart from Christian community. On Saturday, September 21st from 9:30 to noon, we’ll explore how to build networks of support to strengthen our ability to care for our friends both within and outside of City Church.Refreshments will be provided. Childcare is available for $10 per child/maximum $20 per family. Register for childcare here. Contact Patrick Shay ( or Blake Stack ( for more information.

Truth Project Discussion Group: Two City Church members–Jimmy Balta and George Davis–invite you to join them this Fall for a Truth Project Discussion Group. Designed to equip Christians with a comprehensive biblical worldview, the Truth Project utilizes a DVD-based small group discussion format. Each lesson examines a specific area of culture (e.g. Work & Labor, Philosophy & Ethics, History, Science, Theology, Government) through the lens of Scripture. The study will meet on Tuesday evenings, September 10th through December 10th. For more information contact George ( or Jimmy (
