Maybe, a little small church is just what we need.
City Church is looking to hire two part-time staff members to help with our ministry to the church community and the neighborhoods of North Baltimore.
A Denomination's Repentance in Matters of Race
In light of recent in events in Baton Rouge, Minnesota, Dallas, and the ongoing violence on the streets of Baltimore, we pray this Prayer of Lament.
We are all aware of Baltimore City's many areas of needs. Fortunately, there are a lot of organizations seeking to meet these needs, but hands are required to help their missions come to fruition. So why not help out the existing organizations instead of starting one more?
The college years are some of the most pivotal years in a young person’s life. This fall, our church family will have the opportunity to be a home away from home for college students in Baltimore through the “Adopt a College Student” Program.
Araminta Freedom Initiative seeks to awaken, equip and mobilize the Church and our community to end Human Trafficking in the Baltimore area. They engage in the prevention of the sexual exploitation of minors, the systemic economic deterrence of the business of human trafficking, intervention and rescue of those held against their will and provision of aftercare initiatives that provide healing and wholeness to victims.
YoungLives Baltimore is a community outreach that comes alongside teen parents and their children in order to help meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Hi City Kids Parents! There are lots of things to do in Baltimore over the summer with your kids, but my experience has been that living so close to the city, I never explore what options are available to me. Recently I spent some time looking up different activities and events in the city for young families! Here are just a few fun and inexpensive ideas that I found.
We often don't make a connection between our faith things like the well being of Baltimore's harbor. But the truth is, we have been given resources to be good stewards of them. The way we love and serve Christ is inherently tied to the way we take care of our environment! On Sunday, June 28 we heard from Elise Bruner of Blue Water Baltimore about the condition of Baltimore's harbor and some ways we can help improve it. Here's some more information about Blue Water Baltimore and ways to get involved.
This Sunday we studied the question, “What should I do when I am afraid?”
Teens in Baltimore face unique challenges, complicated by the fact that an overwhelming majority of them are growing up without fathers in their homes. Young Life in Baltimore City approaches ministry with a unique strategy to effectively minister to these young people. During the fall, Baltimore City Young Life hosts a couple of events per week with students. They want to provide snacks at both events so that kids can always leave with a full stomach.
PLAN is looking for tutors to be assigned to a student and to meet with him/her once a week. Meetings occur at a local church and involve games, devotionals and then one on one homework assistance. Tutors also work through an online tutoring program with their assigned student. No teaching or subject area expertise needed as curriculum is self explanatory and provided.
The 29th Street Community Center has hired a group of youth workers to volunteer over the summer, many of them working their first job. They are in need of guidance. Particularly, a group of students are working to put together a Youth Edition of the Harwood Voice newsletter. There are a couple of volunteers that help out occasionally, but more coverage is needed. They need someone to sit with them, make sure they’re on task and assist them with the process of writing an article (i.e. research, editing, design, layout).
The 29th Street Community Center is looking for interested volunteers to be trained to assist with and lead an early childhood program called Mother Goose on the Loose. The 29th Street Community Center staff would provide the scheduling and organizational side of things, but they are looking for volunteers who are interested in stepping into a higher responsibility volunteer position on a weekly basis.

This past week my evenings were filled with games, singing, crafts and learning about the Bible! We had City Kids Evening Camp and it was a blast! Our nights went something like this...
