Welcome

Ryan Adams, Pastor

 

Welcome. It’s an honor to have you visit us here online. We hope it provides a glimpse into the heart of who we are, what we do, and why we do it. Of course, the best way to find out all those things is to get to know the people who are City Beautiful Church. So we hope the information here is helpful, but it’s all designed to help you connect.

What will you find here? You’ll hear from our ministry leaders. They’ll provide the heartbeat behind what it is they do in the context of each of their ministries. You’ll hear some stories about some fruit they are celebrating with those they lead alongside. And they’ll provide a glimpse into where they are headed as, together, we walk into seeing heaven revealed on earth. You’ll find pictures, video, and audio that capture some of our gatherings together. But nothing compares to being in the room, face to face. So we hope you’ll join us.

If you’re new to our community, we hope you’ll find this information helpful on your journey to connect more deeply with God, people, and City Beautiful Church. If you’ve been around a while, we’re sure that the stories here will be encouraging as you continue to go deeper.

We’re so honored that you’ve connected with us. We believe that “church” is all about relationship – relationship with God and relationship with others. And that’s why we hope you’ll connect. It’s in the context of exploring these facets of City Beautiful Church that you will discover new things about God, yourself, and your relationships with others. Thanks for allowing us to walk alongside you. We can’t wait to see what you have to teach us!

Engagement

Welcome to City Beautiful Church! Our responsibility as the Engagement ministry is to continually have  conversations that are meaningful and connecting, while discovering the connections that people in our community are seeking. We as a team aim to truly uncover people’s identities and help turn their passions into a reality. Our hope would be to do all of this in a way that is genuine and relationship-based. We want to get to know the real you, because the real you is essential to the City Beautiful family. One of the ways we would like to engage with you is through Exposure.

Exposure is a great starting point if you are new to our community, or looking to engage more deeply with us.  You will meet new people, learn about our values, shared beliefs, and all the things going on throughout the week in the life of City Beautiful Church. Join us every first Sunday of the month following the gatherings.

For Our Families

The beauty of the Church rests in the tremendous diversity afforded us under the banner of Christ Jesus. When we catch glimpses of our future reality, we see a communion of saints from all races, tribes, and tongues, worshipping God together with one voice. With that picture in mind, the Church begins to practice that reality in the here-and-now with an inclusive and celebratory heart for growth. City Beautiful Church is founded on the value of people at all stages of life that strive to be agents of change for the Kingdom in their respective areas of influence, whether the sixty-year old doctor, the twenty-year old graphic designer, or the six-year old child. As we grow together through our diversity, we reveal God to one another, thus coming to a greater understanding of who He is and who we are in light of His love for us all.

Our Greenhouse ministry for children from birth to fifth grade and is less about occupying kids while their parents go about the christian life, and more about living the belief that all people can engage in a real, life-giving relationship with God at all ages. Essentially, our attitude in shepherding the next generation reflects the call of our church on the grand scale by creating a vibrant space for all to encounter God through scripture, worship, prayer, and hands-on experience. We desire for our children to have the same dynamic faith journey as anyone else in our community, and to integrate them into the family all along the way. Our hope is that our children come to grow in intimacy with a God who is present and real, to inhabit an identity of extreme value, and to live out a designed purpose that is powerful and effective.

If you are interested in knowing more about either our Greenhouse children’s ministry, feel free to contact our leaders. Additionally, we are always looking for volunteers with willing servant’s hearts to get involved and raise up the generation!
