City Groups

At City of God we desire to be more than a Sunday event. We want to live as Jesus did; expressing and experiencing the gospel throughout the week. The primary way we pursue this is through City Groups.

City Groups are smaller expressions of God’s church that meet in homes throughout our cities. They are a diverse collection of individuals committed to the gospel and one another, meeting in homes and living out the gospel together for God’s glory between Sundays. Through these relationships we receive and respond to grace, imaging our Creator and lifting up the name of Christ.

The majority of ministry at City of God takes place through City Groups. They are the primary context for discipleship, care, and mission. In these gospel-centered communities scattered across our cities, we strive to make disciples who love Jesus, love people and advance the Gospel.

Our hope is that everyone who calls City of God home will be actively involved in a City Group.


Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. - Matthew 28:19-20


City Groups meet together in full groups the FIRST and THIRD weeks of each month on their determined day and time. During these gatherings, the focus is Community, Care, and Prayer. They are welcoming environments where meals and life are shared. We get to know and continue to grow in relationship with one another. They are informal in structure; celebrating grace, sharing needs and seeking God together in prayer.

The SECOND and FOURTH weeks of the month are set aside for discipleship. These are smaller groups of 3-5 from the group, specific to men or women. They meet once or twice a month at various places and times, to grow in the gospel through Gods Word, honest conversation, and courageous accountability.

Together through these rhythms of large and small gatherings during the month, we seek to enjoy and experience Jesus.

Is the Lord inviting you to help others walk with Him through Leading or Hosting a City Group? As Jesus continues to grow City of God there is always a need for new leaders and locations.

Quarterly we offer a City Groups 101 class. Here we share the basics of community life at City of God, let you know the qualifications and expectations of leadership while meeting and learning from current leaders. This is a great place to ask questions and get a feel for what the Christ might be inviting you into.
