I'm New — City Life Church


City Life Church exists so that people far from God will encounter the presence of God and experience the life that only Jesus offers.

This shapes all of our core values, which in turn determine everything we do. We are convinced that God actually wants people to know Him, so it’s our passion to make this process as easy and uncomplicated as possible!

What to expect

Visiting a new church can be intimidating! What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go? We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel comfortable when you visit.

What's a service like?

Our services start with worship music, end with preaching and follow-up prayer. The service is approx. 75 minutes long (11AM-12:15PM). We are very casual and non-traditional, yet intentional in our pursuit of God. You can expect to be greeted by friendly people and included in our services. Immediately after the service, our pastors and leaders hang out at the City Life Cafe, and they’d love to meet you or answer any questions you might have.

Where do my kids go?

At City Life Church our Children’s Ministry is much more than “childcare”! We purposefully structure our children’s ministry to help children learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun & engaging, and taught by committed volunteers and staff. All of our Kids Classes are open for check in at 9:20AM and 10:50AM and kids are picked up immediately after service.

When you arrive at church, simply sign-in your child at our Kid’s Church Check-in Kiosks (located in the front lobby), print your security labels, and bring your child to their specific classroom. Our Guest Services volunteers will be happy to assist you with checking-in and finding the classrooms.

Our children’s ministry consists of the following classrooms:

  • The Baby Place: 6 weeks–18 months
  • Toddler Place: 18 months–3.5 years
  • Lil’ Kids Church: 3.5 years–Kindergarten
  • Big Kids Church: Grades 1–6

We also provide a private Nursing Room for all nursing mothers, and a Family Room for children needing parental assistance. These rooms are equipped with video & audio, so you won’t have to miss any of our church service.


City Life Church worship is loud, mostly upbeat, and always about Jesus. God has blessed us with talented musicians who love Jesus and are there to help bring us into the presence of God. Worship is way more than entertainment! It is our expression of love & gratitude to God, so we’re pretty passionate and intentional about it.


We preach Jesus. This means we teach from the Bible, because the Bible is all about Jesus. We strive to preach sermons that are relevant and meet people where they’re at. Our goal is for people to be challenged in their faith, encouraged in their walk with God and equipped to fulfill their purpose here on earth. The sermon is usually 35-40 minutes in length. You can check out previous sermons here.


This is how we communicate with God. Nobody is “forced” to pray out loud, but as a charismatic church, it’s not uncommon for people to pray passionately at different points of our services. If you have any special prayer requests, our Prayer Team is always happy to pray with you!

Am I expected to give money?

At City Life no one is ever pressured to give! For those who choose to give, we gladly accept cash, checks and online donations. To give online, click here.

Where should I park?

Street parking is free on Sundays. We recommend parking on Bayshore Blvd or at Lowe's parking lot.

What should I wear?

We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you’re joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you’re wearing. In the summer time, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their “Sunday best,” and that’s fine too! We think you’ll fit in no matter how you dress.

So … expect to have a great time, while meeting new people and encountering the presence of God!
