Counseling & Support

Cityline Cares

Jesus is the hope of the world and God’s heart is for all people. As a church family, we love and value people and understand that we have been blessed to be a blessing. The last couple of years, especially, have been difficult for many. Cityline Cares was established at the very start of the pandemic as a way of benevolence in coming alongside those who call Cityline home, and those who are a part of the Cityline community who may need help and or assistance in this difficult and ever-changing time. Our heart is to help care for those who call Cityline home on a case by case basis through various tangible tools and resources as well as look for ways to best come alongside those who may not be a part of our church community.
