City of God Church started over ten years ago with a handful of Purdue students. Since that time, it has grown to be a church body of hundreds consisting of college students and residents from the Greater Lafayette area. To be clear, this isn't a "college church." At City of God, you'll have the opportunity to worship with a multi-generational congregation. This is a great place to discover what it means to follow Jesus on your own for the first time and what the Christian life will look like beyond your time in school.
Our College Ministry meets twice a month to help students grow in their relationship with Christ and prepare for what life will look like after graduation. We would love for you to join us on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month from 7:00-8:30. You can find out more about our college ministry, and many other City of God Events, by clicking here.
Young Adult 10:25
Hebrews 10:25 “Not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Our vision is to foster a deeper community among grad students and young adults at City of God Church and in the Greater Lafayette area. Come join us as we grow in fellowship and navigate this unique season of life together!
The City of God Men’s Ministry exists to provide men of every age the opportunity to connect beyond Sunday morning and support to grow into the men God has called us to be.
There are two ways you can stay up to date with Men's Ministry at City of God:
City of God's Women's Ministry exists to provide opportunities for women of every age to grow in relationships with each other and Jesus.
There are a number of ways you can get involved with our Women's Ministry throughout the year. Women's ministry events are for women of all ages (16+).
This ministry hosts one event throughout the year specifically geared toward mothers in our congregation. This is a great way to meet other moms at the church and to grow in your ability to discipline your children well.
The women's ministry at City of God helps set up meal trains for women and families going through a life transition such as a new baby, a death in the family, or medical issues. You can let us know about someone who would benefit from a meal train here. The meal train will be posted on the COG Women's Facebook page, so members of the congregation can sign up to bring food. If you would like to be a meal giver, you can always sign up when it's posted online or join our email list here.
Women's Ministry Retreats
The Women's Ministry offers two retreat opportunities. On the even-numbered years, we pick a national retreat to go to (for example: TGC, or Revive) together. Participants pay their own way, and we offer some organization as far as carpool and lodging. On the odd years, we host our own women's retreat - this is a two-night stay at a camp for the purpose of getting away for a few days to focus our attention on Jesus. Both retreat opportunities offer a time to get to know the ladies of COG and learn more about Jesus. For more information about the next retreat, please check the calendar or email us at
Women of Titus 2
This is always our most anticipated event which we host 4 times a year. We take our name from Titus 2: 3-5. We know the importance of older generations teaching the younger generations and we want to lean into this in any way we can. At this event, you can expect to be served dinner, and have time to socialize with other ladies from church, and after dinner there is a speaker equipped to share her testimony, and God's word and encourage us to seek Christ in our everyday lives. These are some of the most uplifting, and challenging evenings. Come join us & bring a friend!
The women's ministry also has regularly scheduled opportunities to enjoy time with other women. Some of our main events include a summer social event, a Christmas party, and another event in the winter. These are great events to bring friends to and come ready to have fun.

The MomCo by City of God (formerly known as MOPS) is a group designed to encourage and equip moms of young children to know they are worthy mothers, women, and leaders in a relationship with Jesus all while partnering with the local church.
Our desire is to build a community that will come alongside mothers in the hardest and best times. A community of love, support, and compassion.
Come join us for a morning of fellowship, building a community, and learning how God is equipping us to parent our children!
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month during the school year over coffee and snacks.
