Stories, A Panel Discussion

Our lives are shaped by the stories we hear and the stories we tell. There are many stories in our community that need to be told and heard, many who are willing to tell them in the hopes of seeing racial divides torn down. That was made clear during our viewing and discussion of 13th.

Join us Sunday, August 27th from 6pm until 8pm as we continue the discussion of race and reconciliation. 

The night will include a panel discussion as well as a time of open discussion and story sharing.

For a better understanding of how stories shape our lives, please watch the Danger of a Single Story, a Ted Talk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:

13th Documentary Viewing & Discussion

Friday, June 23, 6:30pm

The Church is the Kingdom of God present, a visible representation for all of the world to see. We should be the picture of unity and diversity, a people and place of peace, love, and justice.

The leadership of New City Church is committed to seeing this work of the gospel become a reality. We long to see the church live as the Apostle Paul called Christians to live in Romans 12:
"9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

Join us as we seek to understand more clearly, to love one another as we are loved and be the Kingdom present in Middle Georgia.

Small Town Jesus One-Day Conference

"Small towns are big mission fields that are almost totally neglected by modern church planters. City ministry has become, for many, the definition of godly ministry. But what about the millions of people around the world who live in small towns? This is not just a book, it is a call to take the gospel everywhere, big or small, because that’s what Jesus told us to do." (Amazon.com)

Learn with with us how Jesus viewed small towns and small town people. Learn with us, from Donnie's story practical ways to engage in the gospel with the people of your town or city.

Numbers matter; numbers aren’t just numbers, they represent children of God. Jesus came for these “numbers.” It’s staggering to hear, Donnie Griggs and One Harbor Church are reaching 1,000 people a week in a town of just over 9,000 people. This is a Jesus glorifying accomplishment, one every city pastor can learn from. This is a superb book that will help the church reach 33.7 million people in small town America or wherever you are.”
— Tyler Jones, Lead Pastor of Vintage Church, Raleigh, NC

Finding New City Church:

3rd Thursday Roundtables

Each 3rd Thursday of the month we're gathering church planters, pastors, those who dream of leading a church and existing church leaders for a time of connecting, learning and encouragement.  

We'll have coffee ready at 10am and then have a speaker or round table topic at 10:30. We'll plan to talk about or hear from others on practical ministry related subjects like: effectively leading leaders; finding rest in the midst of a busy life; creating church cultures of repentance, gratitude, generosity...; and more.  Following that we'll have some time for Q and A and then prayer. We'll close out before noon which will give you time for lunch with your team or with one those you meet here. 

Look for a schedule of speakers and topics in the coming days!
