Serve Our City

At City Church we desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those in Gainesville – to express God’s love for people in a tangible way. Just as Jesus’ ministry included meeting the physical needs of those He came in contact with, we desire to do the same.

We are compelled to love and care for the disenfranchised in our society – to love and serve and minister to those in need, without expecting anything in return. We don’t desire to “reinvent the wheel.”

There are a number of service organizations and ministries in Gainesville that are currently doing what we just described above. We want to be able to come alongside these organizations and help share the load.

Below you will find our current initiatives and learn about opportunities to get involved:

1

Street Outreach: Our Street Outreach team currently serves a meal twice a week in front of City Hall to care for our neighbors experiencing homelessness relationally and physically. Additionally, our staff is available during the week to provide snacks and discuss further needs for those experiencing homessness. To give a food item or sign up to serve, you can use this sheet.

Artwalk Gainesville: At City Church, we believe it is important to support local artists. Art Walk is a local event that happens at different venues across Gainesville featuring local and regional artists' work. City Church partners with Art Walk to serve as a venue for artists and displays their work in our space. Art Walk happens the last Friday of the month. City Church seeks to serve as a venue multiple times per year. Each time we host an artist, we need help with volunteers to be at Art Walk and engage our community well and help with set up and tear down for the event. To find out how you can help or if you are an artist seeking a venue, please email fraleigh@citychurchgnv.com, Community Engagement Director.

Mentoring: City Church partners with A. Quinn Jones Center to provide mentors for students. If you would like to learn more about the mentoring program and how you can volunteer, please email fraleigh@citychurchgnv.com 

2Created Gainesville exists to reach and restore those impacted by sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. City Church provides both goods and volunteers for the work Created is doing. If you are interested in volunteering, you can find more information here. To learn more about Created and the work they are doing to help free women trapped in the sex industry visit their website here.

The Christian Study Center brings together students, faculty, and community members to explore the intellectual and cultural resources of the Christian tradition. Drawing on these resources we engage at the highest levels of scholarship in order to address enduring human questions and respond to challenges created by contemporary culture. Explore opportunities to attend classes, reading groups, and events here.

Gainesville Community Ministry, with God’s help, seeks to provide compassionate emergency care for those persons who cannot help themselves. We further seek to provide, through education and support, the kind of assistance that will encourage those who can be helped to end a cycle of poverty and despair. Interested in volunteering?
