Here we reach out, build community, and influence our world.
Our culture is shifting. We’re imperfect. And life changes all the time.
At City View we're all discovering what it means to love and follow Jesus -- together.
We'd love to meet you. You are welcome here.
At some time or another we all struggle with sin. But God wants to teach us ways to overcome and handle pride, envy, gluttony, sloth, anger, lust and greed. Discover through God’s grace, mercy, love and power how we can go from darkness to light. This will be the topic of “The 7,”a new seven-part series starting next Sunday, April 28.
If you recently have decided to become a follower of Jesus Christ, or if you are exploring what it means to know God better, you are invited to the “I Have Decided” class. It’s a 1 week Sunday morning class that explores what happens when you say “yes” to receiving Christ as your savior, and what to do next. The class is led by one of the City View Church Pastors and will be meeting this Sunday, April 28, at 9 am in the Family Life Center, 205.
Newer to City View Church? Join us on Sunday, April 28 for the Next Steps lunch after the 10:30am service. This is a free lunch in the Fellowship Center aimed at getting to know you a little better and giving you a chance to meet some of the pastors and staff of City View. Children’s ministry and lunch for the kids is available during the gathering.
Here’s what’s coming up…
A Year of Expansion
Starting Sunday, April 28, we are going back to two Sunday, English services here at City View Church. We will have a traditional service from 8am to 9am in the chapel and the 10:30am service, in the Worship Center, will be our modern service. There will not be children’s ministry during the traditional service time at 8am because it is only one hour. Both services will have the same teaching from God’s word, but the worship styles and other aspects will be different. Our connect classes will still meet at 9am as usual.
Why are we doing this?
After much prayer and discussion, we believe this new 8am service will position the future of His church for greater growth down the road by strategically reaching a targeted audience and giving people flexibility with their schedules.
You might be asking why 8am?
We chose 8am because we also have our Oromo Church, in the Chapel, on Sundays. The new English service will go from 8am-9am, so that it will not affect our Oromo congregation, who practice and prepare before their 10am service.
What you can do?
Pray about which service you feel the Lord wants you to go to and we look forward to seeing what the Lord is going to do. Maybe you know someone who would prefer a traditional or modern service. Now is the time to start telling your friends or neighbors about these two new service times and styles, 8am - Traditional Service, 10:30am - Modern Service. This new schedule will be starting the Sunday after Easter, April 28. We know as time goes on that people in our church and community will begin to gravitate to a certain service and style that they feel is best for them and their schedule.

Tuesday morning prayer
The front line of all we do as a church is prayer. The War Room weekly prayer venue invites you to come join others for a time of united prayer and intercession. Each week the staff meets at 9 am to pray for our church, our families, our city and our world. Come join them each Tuesday from 9-9:30 (or so) in the Fellowship Center.
