City Groups are continuing to meet, whether in-person or online, and we would love for you to connect with a group so you can experience the joy of growing in your faith in community. If you are already in a City Group, but your group is unsure how best to connect in this season, we want to help you take your existing group online. We’ve developed resources to help you easily transition to a virtual environment.

City Group Leader Training

8.20 | 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM | Midtown
Are you a current City Group Leader? Join us for our bi-annual City Group Leader Training. We’ll share stories, celebrate what God is doing, and talk about what it means to be called and commissioned by God to make disciples in City Groups. A light breakfast will be provided at 8:30 AM and lunch will be provided at noon. Participants are asked to find their own childcare as childcare will not be provided at this event.

City Groups are missional communities that multiply disciples of Jesus. This means a City Group is a community of Christ followers that are being spiritually transformed through the reading of God’s Word, living out biblical fellowship as a family, and intentionally pursuing mission for the purpose of demonstrating and declaring the gospel to specific neighborhoods and networks in the city. We want everyone to be a part of a City Group to experience the family of God in real ways and continually grow as disciples who love Jesus and love one another more every day.

Citylight Church is committed to both gathering and scattering as the church. Jesus has called us to make disciples and we believe the best way to make disciples is to scatter throughout the week in City Groups. A City Group is a mid-sized community that is being transformed by the Gospel, growing as a spiritual family, and serving a specific neighborhood or network of Omaha. We want everyone to be a part of a City Group to experience a spiritual family that shares life together and serves a common purpose.

NEW CITY GROUP LEADER COHORT

Kickoff: 3.27 | 5 PM | West
Meetings: Mondays, 7 - 8 PM | 3.28 - 5.9 | Zoom

This Cohort will equip new City Group Leaders to be effective disciple-makers. Come learn about gospel fluency, servant leadership, shepherding your group, and so much more. The training videos, supplemental reading, and group Zoom discussions will develop you as a well-rounded City Group Leader.

CITY GROUP CONNECT

8.29 | 10:15 - 11 AM | West
8.29 | 12:30 - 1:30 PM | Midtown

Following Jesus is meant to happen in the context of community. Sunday morning Gatherings are important, but “Scattering” into the community is also necessary to grow and develop as disciples. Join us between gatherings at the West location or for lunch at the Midtown location to find out more about City Groups and how to find a group for you!

JOIN A CITY GROUP
