M.A.D.D. Rhythms @ CP10: CityPoint Community Church’s 10th Anniversary Service


Ten years ago today with the prayer and diligence of Pastor Demetrius Davis, Karla Evans Davis and eight other individuals, CityPoint Community Church (originally Proviso Community Church) was founded. The vision was to plant a new church community that recaptured the heart of the original church in the Book of Acts. The primary focus was community and commitment to learning and living the principles of the Bible.

From a school auditorium in the west suburbs to posh spaces in the South Loop, we have seen much growth and much transition over the years. All in all, we remain committed to being “simply caring, simply community, and simply church.”

Join us on Sunday, August 12th at 10a as we celebrate this milestone in our church’s history. Pastor Wendell Martin will be joining us as the guest speaker, Jessica Love will lead us in worship, M.A.D.D. Rhythms will perform a dope tap dance, and we’ll have catered bites by Zita Cooks, photo opportunities, and more.

We hope to see you there! #HappyAnniversaryCityPoint #CP10
