This Week’s Sermon: Erik will preach on John 21:20-25 this week. We invite you to read ahead as a way to prepare for Sunday’s service.

Women’s Ministry Survey: City Church’s Women’s Ministry offers a place where women can first find fellowship with Jesus Christ, and through Him cultivate community with one another. City Church desires for women to be encouraged and equipped to lead and love because of the grace found in Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. As we continue to grow and develop our ministry for and to one another, we want to hear from you! To help us better serve and care for our community, please complete this brief survey. Thank you!

Volunteer Schedule Coming Tomorrow! We will send out the June-September volunteer schedule TOMORROW. Please keep an eye on your email!

Volunteer with Backyard Bible Club! We are so excited for City Church's first EVER Backyard Bible Club (BBC). Kids ages 4 through 5th grade are invited to join us July 6th through 10th from 6:30pm to 7pm in Scuffletown Park in the Fan. We are in need of several volunteers to make BBC possible, so we hope you'll consider offering your time. Some volunteer positions require daily attendance, while others allow you to be more selective about which days you can serve. We are so grateful for any time you can give! To sign up, please visit this link. If you have questions volunteering with BBC (or BBC-related questions in general), please contact Jennifer Murpy at Parents: registration forms for BBC will be sent out soon!

Children’s Ministry Volunteers Needed: We are still in need of more Children’s Ministry volunteers, particularly in nursery as we are adding an additional room. If you are interested in serving with Children’s Ministry, please contact Jennifer Murphy at We currently need 9 additional Children’s Worship volunteers and 25 additional nursery volunteers. If we are unable to recruit additional volunteers, we will need to cut back to three nursery rooms. We hope you'll consider volunteering!

Meal for City Church Families: We are currently providing meals for two City Church families who have recently welcomed new babies: the Kronenthals (Fred, born on April 16th) and the Rawlses (Mac, born on May 2nd). If you're interested in serving them in this way, visit to sign up. Please use the family's last name as the log-in and password.
