Welcome to City Chuch!
During the summer City Church's weekly Sunday morning service begins at 10am. In the fall we will resume with two services at 9am and 11am. We meet at our building in the heart of downtown Gainesville. These services are for everyone, including you! We believe you will experience a welcoming environment regardless of whether or not you have ever attended a church service. Join us as we seek to be an authentic community walking with God in our city.
Invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers and come as a group! And as always, we encourage you to take advantage of the downtown restaurants and shops before and after the service. If you are not able to make this service, take heart! We have services every week.
What to expect:
When you approach the City Church entrance (19 SW 1st Street), signs will help you find the front door, where greeters will welcome you. These greeters want to give you a warm hello and would be glad to answer any questions you may have, tell you more about City Church, help you find a seat, or help your family find the kids' rooms.
Our services last approximately one hour and twenty minutes, and consist of singing, a sermon, Scripture readings, and communion. There is also a "community time" (refreshments and fellowship) at the end of each service.
Children’s Church is offered to children 2nd grade and under (including infants) during the Sunday morning worship service. For more information about our children's ministries, visit the Children's Church page, explore the curriculum, or check out the FAQ.
Children in 3rd grade and above are encouraged to worship with the City Church family, and of course children under that age are welcome to do that as well according to their parents' discretion.
Greeters will help you find our kids' rooms. If the need arises, parents can easily attend to their children without interrupting the service.
