“O Lord, You have made us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.”
St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430)
Worship is the most important thing a church does, the single activity that sets it apart from every other human institution. We seek a form of worship that is above all God-honoring and grace-centered, celebrates the mystery of the faith and forms Christ in people. Our worship is rooted deeply within the Christian tradition yet fresh and engaging for the average Milwaukee person. People who worship at City Reformed Church come from various walks of life and experiences. Wherever you are at on your spiritual journey, we hope that you feel warmly welcomed and at home in our church.
If you are new to church, we hope our worship services will be a safe place for you to explore the historic Christian faith, not from a distance, but from the inside. We are a church that seeks to engage the honest questions, doubts, and fears you may have about Jesus and Christianity. Our services generally last an hour and twenty minutes and include music, prayers, Scripture readings, teaching, regular celebration of the Lord’s Supper and baptism. You will find each element of the service explained, and you will feel the freedom to participate at your own comfort level. Also, childcare is offered for families.
If you have been around church for some time, we desire our worship services to be an opportunity for you to adore your Creator and Redeemer, engage with others in the community and consider the meaning of Jesus in your life. We also hope our worship is a place you feel comfortable bringing your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to engage with the Christian faith.
