WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU!
City Life Church exists to honor God by establishing Christ-Centered, Spirit-Empowered, and Socially Responsible Churches and Campus Ministries in every nation. A crucial part to this vision is a deep love for our corporate gatherings that prioritizes live preaching on Sunday mornings. Our ability to meet in-person again is determined, in part, by our governing authorities, MAT (Medical Advisory Board), and the direction of our leadership team.
While we are continuing our online services every Sunday, we desire to embody Hebrews 10:25 by “not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some” while also taking seriously the directives given by our governing officials. This command is drive both by a love for Scripture and one that is also deeply aware of the unique times in which we live. At the same time, we want to clarify that participating in online service is NOT less valuable than being part of our in-person services.
We have in-person services every week. We will continue our registration and "Safety First" guidelines. Registration is required for contact tracing purposes, and the guidelines are in place to ensure everyone attending our in-person services are protected and feel safe.
We stream our services online every week for those who may not be able to attend in person, or who are uncomfortable with attending in person.
Our top priority is to provide a safe environment for our members and guests for our in-person Sunday Services. To accomplish this important task, we are adapting various protocols and guidelines that are provided by the CDC and other governing authorities.
REGISTRATION & PRE-SERVICE PREPARATION:
- Service Registration: Everyone (including children and students) planning to attend our in-person service will be required to preregister. This can be done online or through our Church Center app. Register for our next in-person service.

4) Upon entering the church facility, those attending will be required to:
A – Check-in at the lobby and receive a temperature check

If we have met our limit and someone who hasn’t registered shows up, we will lovingly encourage the individual(s) to return home and join us online. This limit is to allow for social distancing guidelines to be met, and appropriate measures accomplished as people are entering & exiting the venue.
