At Citylife we recognize that mercy is an essential, non-negotiable component of the Christian life. If we are recipients of the gospel – a story of mercy – then it is only natural for us to respond in mercy with our everyday lives. Mercy Ministry’s vision is for every individual and the church to cultivate a lifestyle of mercy. Mercy is not simply an add-on in life, but it is a natural outpouring of faith in Christ. The end goal of mercy is for individuals and communities to be reconciled in their relationships with God, oneself, one another, and creation.
Citylife has developed a Neighborhood Ministry, where we encourage members of Citylife, living in the same neighborhoods, to work together for the peace and prosperity of their respective neighborhood. If you would like to get involved in our Neighborhood Ministry, please fill out the mercy contact form and we will connect you to an existing Neighborhood Group.
Chinatown Respite Care
Respite care is the provision of short-term relief to individuals caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Training will be made available.
Church / School Partnership
Citylife is committed to giving back to our city by developing a long term relationship with one of the strongest institutions in Boston - the school system. We are currently building strong bonds with the James W. Hennigan school in Jamaica Plain. To learn more, and to volunteer, please email Brice Williams // firstname.lastname@example.org
