As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

In response to COVID-19 we are offering a variety of small group options including in person and online. Please contact us (link to Office@TheCityGatesChurch.org) if you would like help connecting with a group.

 Equip AND Engage
All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer. Acts 2:42

At The City Gates Church, we strive to encourage active spiritual growth and a strong sense of community. But sometimes the culture and pressure of the DC area can make these simple goals hard to achieve.  That’s one reason we offer home groups and classes throughout the area and throughout the week –they’re a place to connect with each other for encouragement, prayer, worship, teaching, and a reminder that we’re not in this alone. Home groups and classes are a great way to get connected, and new people show up all the time. If you are interested in joining a group, but none of these fit your schedule, check out our Women’s Ministry and Men’s Ministry pages!

Midweek around town
We have a variety of home groups meeting across the area and they’re a great place to get connected. Please contact the office if you’re interested in connecting with a group.

Sunday Mornings at The City Gates Church

Each Sunday morning at 9 & 11 AM a variety of groups meet at the church.  From junior and senior high youth groups to a group that draws many of our senior saints, there’s a class for anyone looking to plug in and grow in the faith.  Children’s Ministry offers a full complement of classes at the same time. Some of our ongoing classes include:

(NOTE: not all classes are meeting on campus due to COVID, please ask if you have any questions about finding a class.)

“Easy English” (English as a second language)
“Connections”(Teaching on a Bible passage and group discussion along with prayer and fellowship )
“One Another” (in-depth Bible study, opens with singing classic hymns)
