The pastoral team and I are keenly aware of how deeply COVID-19 is affecting our city and surrounding counties.  During these unprecedented times, we are working tirelessly to meet the needs of our communities, both physically, financially  and spiritually.


At City Church, we believe that Jesus taught that relationships are the most important thing in life. In this season where authorities recommend social isolation and quarantines, technology gives us the opportunity to remain relationally driven while loving our neighbors through abundant precautions.


I want to take a moment to encourage all of us to take the requested physical contact restrictions of our governmental leaders very seriously. Sometimes loving our neighbors by keeping our distance or carefully following personal contact guidelines may seem somewhat overcautious. The medical professionals who worship at City Church have reached out again and asked us to reinforce the importance and wisdom of taking these restrictions very seriously.  


Thank you for following through with their request as we continue to find ways as a church family to “love our neighbor” and put Feet to our Faith!




In order for the pastoral team to serve you most effectively during this time we have set up a dedicated phone number we have named: Pastoral Help Line – 434-260-1053


During this upcoming time of uncertainty, many of our families will face additional difficulties: homes financially affected by layoffs/hourly work, single-parent households, the elderly, those with compromised immunities, etc.


If you or your neighbors should have a spiritual, financial or physical need please text your name, contact number and the need to 434-260-1053. In faith we are believing that God will allow us to provide for each need you bring to our attention.




Radically Loving & Practically Serving 

      1. Pray for your neighbors, all of them, by name if you can, by a street number if you don’t know them at this time.
      2. Check-in on your neighbors via Facebook, phone or a letter to let them know you are thinking of them.
      3. If you are willing and able, offer to get groceries and other essentials for older neighbors.
      4. If you know of a neighbor in need, please text the Pastoral Helpline at (434) 260-1053.




We are thankful for the opportunity for all of us to virtually worship together!

Sunday Morning Service, KIDSPACE, REACH Youth, Sunday Evening Vigil and Wednesday Prayer are all available online at this time.  Please join us!


We will continue to send updates about services and events through City Church’s APP, Facebook account, website, and email. Our staff is available to support you!




We want to provide you with every opportunity to remain relationally driven, so we have created a City Church Facebook Group for this purpose. We encourage you to join our Group and engage as you feel led.


Post an encouraging scripture, local updates, service opportunities, needs you may have, or anything else that is on your heart! As always, let’s intentionally “Love our Neighbors” and be quick to hear and give grace! Our prayer is that this group will be a blessing to you as we obey scripture’s wisdom of “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together” while walking in wisdom and caution in this season.




If you have spiritual needs, we have pastoral care in place to serve you. If you would like to receive prayer or meet virtually with a member of our care team, please click the link below.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with the hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans15:13

While this is a fluid situation, God is in control. He has empowered us through the Holy Spirit so that each of us, as the church, can reflect the light of Christ in this present crisis. Let us continue to pray confidently to our Good Father, believe firmly in His Word through scripture, love our church deeply, and support our community that needs hope and peace.
