This past July I moved back to Houston and was searching for a new church and Christian community. Soon after being introduced to City Church by one of my best friends, I immediately felt that God was using this church to shed His light into the depths of this city.
Meanwhile, the Lord presented a cool, separate opportunity to join a Bible study with 20 girls my age. We meet weekly to worship, learn more about the Lord and grow deeper in relationship with Him. Spending time with this group has been instrumental in revealing how the Lord is working in and through the city of Houston and the young adults here. Our goal is to build and encourage Christ-centered community, and being a part of this community has transformed my daily life in Houston and walk with Christ. I know that the City Church Communities will do the same.
When the idea of City Church Communities was introduced to me, I could not have been more excited. I am looking forward to spending time in community with other members at City Church and inviting others into the group who are looking for a sense of community.
In Ecclesiastes 4 the Bible says, “two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
I know that within each City Church Community, the Lord will reveal this promise, and peoples’ lives will be changed.
I hope you'll join me at one of the four City Church Communities in Upper Kirby, the Heights, the Medical Center or West University beginning the week of October 18.
