what to expect
Here is what you can expect if you visit our Church Service at Citylights:
At Citylights, you don’t need to get dressed up to come to church. Wear whatever you want – jeans, shorts, t-shirts, sandals. We have created an atmosphere that is both welcoming and comfortable. Just grab a coffee and donut (free of charge, of course), sit down and enjoy the Worship Gathering.
At Citylights, you’ll find real people –in other words, people just like you. It is not about a building, a place, or an organization – our church is about people! The people at Citylights, are friendly, warm, non-judgmental, welcoming, and loving. Come as you are, and be yourself!
At Citylights, church isn’t just a once-a-week event –it is about relationships! Citylights, is a place where you can make new friends, deepen existing friendships, and be loved and accepted as you are. We know that authentic relationships are hard to come by, and that’s why we’re making them a big emphasis! (Ask us about our mid-week small groups)
At Citylights, we love kids! Every week, we offer a Kid’s Program (birth through 5th Grade) during our Sunday Church Services. Our team of dedicated teachers will prepare a fun and interactive program for the kids with stories, crafts, games, and snacks, all in a fun and safe environment. We think your kids will love it!

At Citylights, each week you will hear a clear message from the Bible that will easily apply to your life.
