family center

Our church has been steadily growing for the past four years, and our children's ministry is bursting at the seams. For several months now, our leaders have been working hard behind the scenes to determine the best way to accommodate all of this growth.


It turns out that the answer was right above our heads!


Our trustees have approved U-City Family Church entering into a two-year lease for 4,000 square feet of commercial space on the second floor of the Tivoli building to develop a much-needed Family Center. The Family Center will provide a beautiful, airy, well-lit, well-appointed, secure space for children's ministry, student ministry, growth track, prayer, team meetings, training sessions, counseling sessions, offices and many other vital ministry functions. This expansion will allow us to not only grow in terms of the number of people we serve, but also deepen the ways in which we minister to our growing congregation. In short, this expansion is a game-changer in terms of the ways we can fulfill our mission of helping people take the next step on their spiritual journey. This is truly a Godsend!
