Annual Events

Women’s Seminar  |  March

The women of the CityChurch gather together on a Saturday in March for a time of fellowship and development around things we are learning as a church and how they apply specifically to women.  It is a time of reflection and challenge around the important role of women in our families, churches, and community life––living skillful lives and progressing the gospel.

CityChurch Picnics

We hold two CityChurch-wide picnics each year, marking both the beginning and ending of the summer. These provide a context for interaction, networking, and relationship development for the entire CityChurch.

  • Memorial Day Breakfast at Brookside Park
  • Labor Day Picnic at Emma McCarthy Lee Park

BILD International Conference | November

Every year we host a one-of-a-kind training event as leaders from all over the world come to Ames for the BILD International Conference.  The International Conference is a 2-week training and networking opportunity for new and current partners of BILD International to receive training in and experience the New Testament principles of church-based theological education in action.

This is always a rich experience for the CityChurch family as we extend hospitality to the world through interaction with these leaders both at training events and as we host many of them in our homes.

The conference concludes with several key opportunities that all members of the CityChurch are invited to participate in.

Christmas Program | December

Every December, the children of the CityChurch participate with aduots to put on a Christmas program for the CityChurch, family and friends! The program provides an opportunity for all of the children to work together with each other and adults in a collective event and to discover and use their gifts in multi-faceted ways.
