What is The City all about?

Really, we could sum up it by saying that The City exists to help middle and high school students love God, love people, and lead other teenagers into fully committed relationships with Jesus Christ.

We want to boldly represent Jesus’ love to middle and high school students from all walks of life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware. We are not about being perfect. We are a group of real people, with real problems, who know a real Savior, who makes a real difference in our lives!

We meet regularly in a variety of different settings listed below:

Students have the opportunity to participate in multiple trips throughout the year. Some trips are local and others are far away. Here are some of the things we do together:

  • Fun events, such as pool parties, laser tag, bowling, and roller skating
  • Spiritual growth events, such as conferences and concerts
  • Service events, such as foreign/domestic mission trips and service projects
