Ash Wednesday | True Power

Maya Angelou encourages us with this: “you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.” Jesus does the strangest thing with all the power the Father had given him. He takes off his outer clothing, wraps a towel around his waist and symbolically models for his disciples what the apostle Paul will later say about him in Philippians 2:6-11.

City Youth and the Beatitudes

This spring our City Youth are studying the Beatitudes during our Sunday night Bible study. We will be using Iain Duguid’s Heroes of Heroes: Seeing Christ in the Beatitudes as a guide. While we encourage students to get a copy of the book to read on their own, it is not necessary. We will provide a handout each week that summarizes the lesson for the following Sunday that can be used for preparation.

City Church Care Team

by Pam Cooner

I first met Shirley when she came for prayer, asking me to pray for the Lord to provide the money she needed for rent in two weeks. She explained that she had become injured and could not physically do her job and was almost at the end of her savings. She lived alone, had no family, and had moved to the city to pursue her career. I asked if I could meet with her further and help her think through her short term and long term plan for being able to live on her own.

Reflections on the “Two Weights” of Christmas

One of the animating values of City Church is a commitment to the arts, and among the unique capabilities of art is the joining-together of themes and abstract concepts with raw emotion. Christmas brings with it a lot of art that illuminates concepts such as peace, charity, family, the thoughtful close of a year and the anticipation of a prosperous new one. In most cases, these themes are tonally married to a thin slice of the emotional spectrum: joy and happiness.

Christmas 2017 at City Church

Memories and music rush to my mind this time of year. Even my earliest recollections of Christmas seem to be paired with a playlist: Drooling over the kitchen counter as my mother bakes her delicious fudge and Bing Crosby croons White Christmas in the background or shouting Feliz Navidad along with Jose Feliciano as my father and I string Christmas lights outside our home. The older I get the more heartwarming these kinds of moments are to me. For many of us no other season of the year is so richly adorned with vivid stories and songs from our past.
