City Church Conway started some 4 years ago under the leadership and vision of Pastor Joey Cook. From the beginning they were not content being a light in the city of Conway but wanted to spread the Kingdom of Jesus as far as possible. Fast forward to 2015 Pastor Scotty Howard had a heart for planting a church and began searching for where and when. God used a short season in Conway to bring a team of people to come alongside Scotty and His family to begin City Church Sherwood. City Groups began meeting in homes and around campfires in the fall of 2016. In January of 2017 City Church Sherwood gathered the first City groups together for their first Sunday Gathering preview service. The response was overwhelming and the church began having regular Sunday Gatherings of their City Groups on Feb. 15th of 2017. God is doing great things in and through Sherwood and in City Church as we seek to be a church for the city.
"Christ Centered Communities Cultivating Compassion for Our City"
As followers of Jesus, everything we do -work, home, and play- must be driven by the good news of who Jesus is and what he has done. The gospel drives us to follow Jesus and help others to do the same.
We were not designed to follow Jesus alone. It's only together that we can be and do what God has designed us for. Together, we seek to engage the world around us with the good news of Jesus.
Jesus told his followers that the Spirit of God would guide them. As his followers today, we believe the Spirit of God lives in us, and with his power, we can be obedient to Jesus' commands here and now.
Jesus was generous, ultimately giving up his life for his followers. As his followers, we are called to be good stewards of everything God has given us, which includes being generous towards the needs around us.
We can be always filled with joy because of who Jesus is and what he has done for us. Even when the battles of life rage around us, we will choose to fight for joy because we are loved and valued by God.
