Sara’s New Chapter at City Church

I was born and raised in Tyler, Texas, and I come from a blended family with five sisters. Growing up I was challenged to try new things and make my own choices, but most importantly I was taught what it looked like to follow Jesus. My family continued to encourage me to do just that as I headed to College Station to attend Texas A&M.

Your Invite Matters

by Kyle Roquemore

I was born and raised in the church. I’ve always believed that God existed, but for a long time I had what I would call a "surface relationship" with him. I just never felt good enough. Some Christians seem to cruise through life without a care in the world. Well, that’s not me.

Culture and Care: City Youth 2019–20

According to the Cubist painter Pablo Picasso, “It takes a very long time to become young.” Picasso’s paradoxical sentiment is meant to highlight that youth should not be a phase one grows “out of,” but rather a state of mind that one grows toward. While we may associate idealism, hopefulness, and various creative impulses with the young, it takes work to cultivate these good desires and maintain them throughout the mounting pressures of adult life (whatever we take “adult life” to mean!).
