City Groups are small to medium sized groups of City Church friends and Houston friends which gather regularly to share the gospel with each other, pray and care for each other and serve the city together. Put more simply, City Groups are a place to explore faith and connect with each other.
As we prepare to start our fourth ministry year, we will be making a couple of significant changes to our City Groups ministry, a reboot of sorts. I am very excited to share these with you.
First, we will be implementing a monthly rhythm that each City Group will follow:
Second, City Groups will no longer discuss the sermon; instead, they will engage in a Bible study together, facilitated by the leaders. I will develop the lessons and distribute them on a weekly basis to the leaders, who will share with the group.
We hope this will enable our church family to become more relationally connected to each other, not only in breadth (you get to know more people at City Church) and but also depth (you get to know each other better).
City Groups will launch the week of August 26, with kickoff gatherings in each group. The rhythm described above will start the first week of September (the week following Sunday, September 2).
I encourage you to visit many of our City Groups this fall and then make a commitment to one for the rest of the ministry year. This is our primary way to get connected. If you have questions or comments, please reach out to me so that I can process with you how to help this ministry best serve you and others.
