City Bible Church is an interdenominational, Bible-believing church.
We are here to serve the community, provide Biblical instruction, spiritual help, encouragement and to provide a fellowship where all are welcome regardless of where you may be on your spiritual journey.
We are not affiliated with any denomination and therefore offer a unique opportunity where persons from all evangelical divisions of the Church can fellowship and serve happily together.

- fellowship coffee at 10 am,
- gathering in the main auditorium at 10:30 am for

- bible reading,
- and prayer.
- At approximately 11 am the children would be dismissed to go to their own Junior Church, while the adults remain for a lesson from the Bible by Pastor Bill.
