Children's Ministry

We are excited to help children and their parents grow in knowing God’s love and grace. Our philosophy is to develop relationships between children, the City Life community, and the story of God’s grace. Our lessons emphasize children’s creative participation in the stories of the Bible. Utilizing art, story telling, physical activity, singing, and, of course, fun, we help our kids understand God’s love while experiencing loving community.

Children up to 5th grade begin at Sol Collective and sit together with their teacher or families for the singing and liturgy time. During the greeting time they head next door to Capsity for class. Then, they return to Sol Collective for Communion (The Lord's Supper) at the close of service.

Where? City Life's space is unique! Sol Collective (Worship) and Capsity (Children & Youth) are two store-front spaces side-by-side on 21st Street.

A few notes for parents: Our Child Safety Policy requires each child be checked in so that we can contact parents if they are needed during the service. At any point in the service you can come to Capsity to be available for your child’s needs and are welcome to stay as long as you like. 

Middle & High School Youth Group

Middle School Youth Group: 6th-8th graders at City Life meet together on the first Sunday of every month at Capsity from 9:30 AM -10:45 AM to learn from the Bible and grow together as friends. We also go on fun excursions as a group once a month to build community and to explore how God shows up in the world around us. For more information contact Josiah at [email protected].

High School Youth Group: 9th-12th graders at City Life meet off-site on the first and third Wednesdays of every month from 6:00 PM-7:30  PM. Every teen is encouraged to come as they are and to ask deep questions about life, faith, and the world around them. We spend our evenings eating together and looking at what the Bible has to say about the most prominent issues in our lives. For more information contact Josiah at [email protected].
