TEENS & COLLEGE
The image that the Bible most commonly uses to describe the church is that of “family.” Traditional families are not made up of one gender, one specific age group, or any one stage of life. Instead, there is more depth, growth, perspective, and balance as we share life in intergenerational gatherings with single and married folks, men and women, teenagers and grandparents, and everyone in between. In The City Church, we encourage people of all ages and life stages to live life together. In this, we find unity in diversity as you interact with folks who are perhaps a little unlike yourself.

With that mindset, our ministry with teen and college-aged students is built on four key aspects:
City Groups: These “families of servant missionaries” are the heart of The City Church. Spread across the Fort Worth area and found near many campuses, we invite students to experience life in The City Church by jumping into a City Group.
Student Discipleship: Discipleship isn’t just reading the Bible and praying together, it’s learning how to infuse the gospel into every element of daily life – even the most mundane things have spiritual impact! One way we seek growth is through our City:Students Hangouts. These are gatherings that take place every second Sunday evening at LCC. Students who are 5th grade and older come to play games, engage with the Word, share a meal, and grow in grace. College students primarily connect with Fight Clubs through your City Group or through relationships on campus.
Sunday Worship: Rather than have a separate, weekly “student or college service”, our entire church family worships God together every Sunday. Gathering most Sundays and scattering once a quarter, we seek to live out God’s commands and worship him in various, biblical ways.
Gospel Identity Events: We view all members of the body, regardless of age, to be a part of a family of servant missionaries. One main purpose of City:Students is to seek to grow in these identities by looking for opportunities to spend time together intentionally serving others in community. On the second Sunday of each month we play games with residents of Bethesda Gardens Memory Care. Afterwards, we gather for a meal a fun activity to help us grow in community.
