Our Missional Communities, or MCs, are the heart of our vision to live as the family of God together, demonstrating and proclaiming the gospel of grace to one another and our city. In small groups we meet regularly in one another’s homes – gathering together to worship, serve, teach, disciple, and encourage one another and our neighbors. Sometimes we share a meal together too.
If you’re interested in joining an MC, we’d love to hear from you. Find a Missional Community near you using the link below.
On Sunday morning our Missional Communities come together, along with family, friends, and neighbors, for a Worship Gathering. This is a time of fellowship and spiritual renewal. We worship God in various ways.
The people of God sing together. Theologian Karl Barth once noted that, “singing is the highest form of human expression.” In Scripture we see that song has been a part of the worship of God from creation and that it will continue into eternity. At New City Church, when we gather together, we sing to God of our adoration, gratitude, and need for His saving grace.
At New City Church we love the Word of God as it is rich with wisdom, inspiration, encouragement, and insight for our daily lives. When we gather together, we worship God through the reading of his holy Scripture and through hearing his Word preached.
Prayer is a part of everything we do at New City Church. When we gather together for worship, we will pray together, adoring the infinite majesty of our creator, recognizing our unworthiness as those who have sinned against the Father, inviting his presence through the Holy Spirit, and expressing our gratitude for God’s acceptance of us through the work of Jesus Christ.
Occasionally we will recite creeds or confessions that are true to God’s Word such as the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, or the Westminster Standards. This reminds us that at New City Church we are a part of the unfolding plan of God’s redemption for mankind that has extended throughout history; that his truth is timeless; and that his Word is as relevant today as when it was first written.
At New City Church, when we come together for worship on Sunday morning we usually partake of the Lord’s Supper. As often as is needed, we will also celebrate together as children or new believers are baptized.
We believe that it all belongs to Jesus; all of our time, talent, and treasure. Part of worship at New City Church is the voluntary giving of offerings and tithes with a grateful heart. If one is only visiting New City Church we endeavor to never cause them to feel compelled to give.
