How Do I Get There?
We meet at 11:15a on Sundays in the Historic Sanctuary of First Baptist Church,
in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Historic Sanctuary of First Baptist Church
On the southeast corner of Broward Boulevard + Northeast Third Avenue
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
Where Do I Park?
Free parking is available in the City Parking Garage just northwest of the First Baptist Church… that’s the second garage on the right after you turn from Third Avenue to First Street (just follow the orange CityChurch Parking signs). A crossing guard is on duty before and after the service.
Family Drop-Off (use the Loading Zone) and Disabled Parking lot are located on Northeast First Street. From there, follow the signs to enter the sanctuary beneath the steeple on Third Avenue, around the corner.
The Service as a Whole
CityChurch’s Sunday service is designed to tell a story… to present the gospel in a narrative form, as it flows throughout the service. Each week the story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection is retold a different way, and those who follow Jesus in faith and repentance meet the risen Lord in the sacrament of communion.
As a church community we observe the Christian year with its seasons of Advent, Epiphany, Lent, and Easter. We do this to help each other remember the redemptive rhythm of God’s presence in our lives. In any given day we metaphorically travel through these seasons as we grapple with grief, doubt, and temptation, and also celebrate joy and hope.
The Communication of the Gospel
Central to each worship service (and to everything we do at CityChurch) is the communication of the Gospel. The gospel is the good news that God has intervened in world history through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ in order to forgive and defeat human sin, vanquish evil in every form, and replace death with life through the power of Jesus’ resurrection.
Because the Gospel is God’s revelation of Himself and His redemptive mission in Jesus Christ, it provides the true way to view ourselves, our friends, our communities, and this world.
How Often Does CityChurch Have Communion?
We participate in the sacrament of communion during our weekly Sunday service, so that experiencing the presence of Christ through communion becomes every service’s focal point. Like the early church centuries ago, we believe that in this way we will be constantly reminded of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and renewed in God’s love and grace in our lives.
