FALL 2018 SONG LIST
Here is the collection of songs we are currently singing.

Choose your player:


God honoring/christ-focused music

In all that we do, we exist to bring glory to God. Our foremost value is to be "for the gospel and for the city." This is our duty and mission as His disciples.  We serve our city and share the authenticity of the gospel by "speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music from your hearts to the Lord" (Ephesians 5:19)

Born from God's love for us, we in turn choose to love others. We do this by believing and teaching the inerrancy of the scriptures that reveal to us who God is, how He has saved us through His son Jesus Christ, and that we will tell His word through song in waiting for his return.

Our Music

Because music is such a powerful medium, we honor excellence in our musical worship and lead our congregation in the same manner. We do this by providing instrumentation that supports an atmosphere where the church can sing His praises and honor His word through song.

The music at CITYCHURCH is selected through a gospel filter that tells of the wondrous truths of God's character and the saving grace we have in Jesus. We encourage and build up one another in proclaiming His love and mercy for us, His victory through Jesus over the grave, and the continued mighty works of His hands.

Our workshops exist to foster growth for musicians and fellowship with our community. We cover a variety of areas from each instrument played on stage to the roles and responsibilities of a worship leader. Our goal is to provide a broader understanding of each person's instrument and where they fit in the music spectrum. 

All clinics are free and open to the public but spots are limited. Whether you play an instrument or are just interested in music, these workshops are for you. Please select the workshop below to register.
