Citylight Council Bluffs is committed to both gathering and scattering as the church. Jesus has called us to make disciples and we believe the best way to make disciples is to scatter throughout the week in City Groups. A City Group is a small- to mid-sized community that is being transformed by the Gospel, growing as a spiritual family, and serving a specific neighborhood or network of Council Bluffs. We want everyone to be a part of a City Group to experience a spiritual family that shares life together and serves a common purpose.


We want everyone to be a part of a City Group to experience a spiritual family that is being transformed by the gospel, share life together, and serve a neighborhood or network in Council Bluffs. And anytime is a great time to join any of the groups. See the list of groups below or for more information contact To sign up for a City Group online, visit this link: City Group Sign-Up .


It takes a team of leaders to help City Groups make disciples and live on mission for Jesus. If you are interested in launching and leading a new City Group, leading a table at the next Group Launch, or meeting with a pastor to learn more, shoot an email to
