How we serve Christ together as a community
We were not created to live in isolation; we need one another. Community is essential to the Christian life. This community develops in three ways: Sunday worship, Small Groups, & Membership.
We gather together on the Lord's Day to stir one another up to love and good works, to sit under the preaching of God's Word, to participate in Christ's ordinances, to pray, and to sing praise to God.
The primary way Citizens Church promotes community is through Small Groups. This is where we develop our deepest friendships, receive regular encouragement, and where we disciple one another. Small Groups meet Wednesday and Thursday evenings to share a meal, study and apply the Bible, and pray for one another.
Although we tend to avoid commitment in our culture, it is only through commitment that we grow. To become a member of a church is to commit to its confession, practices, and people. Therefore, becoming a member means committing to being discipled and making disciples. If you desire to mature your faith, then membership is for you! We have membership classes on the 3rd Sunday each month from 6 pm to 9 pm.
Citizens Church wishes to foster a deep commitment to one-on-one and group discipleship amongst the women in our community. To that end, the women gather on a regular basis to read and discuss books, meet for personal discipleship, as well as have fun and build friendships. To get connected, email email@example.com
We also desire for the men in our church to know and love one another well. We have a men's breakfast on the last Saturday of every month. For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Church community can be difficult for midshipmen. For this reason, we have a Small Group that meets on the Navy Yard every Thursday at 1900 located at Dry Dock. We also encourage mids to get connected with the Baptist Collegiate Ministry that meets Tuesdays at 1900 at Mitscher Auditorium on the Yard. For more information, reach out to email@example.com.
Youth ages 9-15 are invited to have fellowship together every 2nd & 4th Sunday from 8:30-9:30 am.
We want our children to grow in their knowledge of and love for the Lord. We have a class that meets after the worship gathering every 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of the month. The classes last for about 45 minutes.
These are our adult Sunday School classes. Join us Sundays at 8:30 am as we go over various issues and topics concerning the Christian faith. Sunday Seminar is currently navigating through the topic of discipleship.
