I first moved to Manhattan from LI to go to grad school. I wanted to find a church where I felt "at home" and I was checking out so many different places. There are TONS of churches all over NYC! Ay yi yi! I got really frustrated. Finally, a friend told me to check out CityLight Church and I have been there ever since. It's been over four years now! When I first walked into CityLight Church, I was a little nervous because my past experience with churches had been a lot of cliques and small groups and a lot of feeling a little left out and "not belonging." It was so different at CityLight! The minute I walked in, this cute guy :-) walked up to me and introduced himself to me and then introduced me to a bunch of other people too. Everyone was so friendly and warm. I was really taken aback. The pastor, Bojan Jancic, preached a really great message and showed he really knew the Bible and wasn't pulling stuff out of the air. Anyway, I've been there ever since. CityLight Church has gotten a lot bigger since I started attending but there's still that warmth and friendliness. There are awesome activities to get involved in that are great for meeting people and getting to know everyone. NYC can be a pretty lonely place so it's great venue for making friends! There are people there from EVERYWHERE--all over the USA and the world, all different ages, backgrounds, etc, etc. CityLight Church is definitely NOT boring. The music is awesome--drums, guitars, the occasional violin, keyboards, etc, etc. It's powerful too because people are really hungry to get to know God and experience Him. Something else I really love about CityLight Church is that it's really laid-back and flexible. Everyone worships God in their own way which is awesome. The teaching by Pastor Bojan Jancic is great and really practical and applicable and definitely not "out there." Just one more thing to add...I happen to be deaf and CityLight has ASL interpeters so it's awesome in that respect too! Hurray! Anyway, I've gone and written a book. If you're looking for God or just want to have a different "spiritual experience," check out CityLight Church. Very cool.
I've finally found a church where I can be who I am and worship and pray in my own way and not worry about what others think of me. It's been so hard to find a place where I can just belong. CityLight is a God-send. When I'm at a service in CityLight, all other distractions are removed. I feel as if I'm sitting right there with God, listening to Him speak. The Pastor is an amazing pastor who knows how to make the bible come alive and be more relevent to today's world, which is so important in my opinion. Worshiping at CityLight is so liberating. It has by far one of the best worship teams I've ever heard led by a worship leader who is taken up to the throne room from the moment he begins. All we have to do is join him up there. The music appeals to God of course, but it also appeals to us. Contemporty beats, touching lyrics, passionate delivery. The people I've met at CityLight have quickly become some of my good friends. It's a young environment filled with loving, non-critical individuals who are zealous for the things of God and the most down to earth people I've ever met in a church setting. They are people you'd meet in your everyday life, become friends with and want to spend time with. Only they're better because they're filled with the Holy Spirit and in love with Jesus. I can say so much more about this remarkable place of worship but I'll conclude with: CityLight ROCKS! Hope to meet you there soon.
