About City Life

The vision of City Life is to empower urban youth to change their community for Christ. City Life empowers teens spiritually, socially, and emotionally through creative programming and healthy relationships with adult mentors. 

City Life is free and open to any teenager. The ministry features free food, games, a biblically-themed message, and the opportunity to build healthy, Christ-centered relationships. We now also have a Life Skills class to equip youth with qualities to succeed.

City Life: Thursday evenings from 6:15-8:15 PM at the Swedish American Riverfront YMCA (200 Y Blvd, Rockford, IL 61107). It meets in the Teen Center.

City Life Life Skills Class: Monday evenings from 4:30-6:30 PM at the Swedish American Riverfront YMCA. It meets in the Harding Center.
