Who are we?

August 23, 2018
Citychurch McKinney is an outreach ministry on the East side of McKinney, Texas. Citychurch is a family oriented 501(c)3 ministry whose desire is to see families grow and prosper both physically and spiritually. We are unique in our hands-on approach to ministry. At Citychurch we believe that the best way to reach people is to reach out to people. Giving is a large part of what Citychurch does. Satisfying a person's physical needs (ie. clothing, food, ect.) is often the only way to connect with them. Citychurch lives by the Acts 1:8 ...

Summer Camp

April 17, 2017
  This year Citychurch teamed up with Psalm68five Ministries to send 50 of our students to a Christian summer camp. Until this year Citychurch has been unable to afford the price of camp, transportation, food, toiletries, towels, sleeping bag's...etc. Earlier this year we we're introduced to a man named Bryan Johnson who was the founder of Psalm68five Ministries. Psalm68five is a non-profit ministry geared towards helping and mentoring children growing-up in fatherless homes. Part of the way that Psalm68five ministers to families is by ...

Why Is It Called Citychurch?

October 20, 2016
I was asked on more than one occasion why we call ourselves Citychurch. Many people look at what we do and don't see a church. It all boils down to one of my least favorite words "tradition." The name Citychurch needs to be taken extremely literally. We see so many different congregations, different denominations, different traditions, and we wonder why there is so much focus on minute differences? Why, if we all believe in Jesus Christ as the risen Savior, are we not working together to tell others about our Savior? Citychurch is just that, ...

2nd String Sunday School Teacher

July 05, 2016
  I occasionally substitute teach a Sunday school class at Citychurch.  When I do, I usually teach the 10 - 13 year old boys.  That group is one of our more rambunctious groups and requires a certain type of teacher.  Currently there are about 15 boys, and our class is growing. Most of these boys live in a home without a reliable father figure in the picture. Each of them are trying to grow up and find their way in the world.  Many of them struggle with problems I never previously associated with being a kid. The struggles that they ...

OUR INSPIRATION

December 29, 2015
On December 19, 2009 a great man from Amarillo, Texas passed away at the age of 57 after a battle with leukemia. His name was pastor Don Lane. Pastor Lane was the founder and head pastor of the original Citychurch in Amarillo. He believed from a very young age that preaching the Gospel in rough and forgotten neighborhoods was his one and only true calling. He and his family started an inner-city ministry while living in relative poverty. Inner-city churches are rarely if ever profitable enterprises, but the Lane family remained steadfast. ...

How You Can Help

November 10, 2015
  There are a number of ways to contribute to Citychurch that include donations, volunteering and prayer.  Many people believe that mission work and serving others is something that some people are called to do and some aren't. The truth is that Jesus' last words before his final ascension into heaven were calling all believers to be his witnesses. (Acts 1:8) There are however, many different ways to serve. Some people are teachers, while others are behind the scenes donors, prayer warriors and volunteers. We ask all believers first and ...
