Plan Your Visit

If you are the “try before you buy” type, we invite you to join us live online this Sunday morning on The City Church @Home at 9:45am or 11:30am. On The City Church @Home you can experience one our services live from the Port City Campus right from the comfort of your home. You can also check out one of our past services on The City Church TV, or via our YouTube channel. We also stream our Port City Campus services live on Facebook every Sunday morning at 9:45am and 11:30am.

How to find us...

The Port City Campus is centrally located in Kingsport, Tennessee at 2601 East Center Street, halfway between Eastman Road and Memorial Boulevard. This is the former Glenwood Church building, which has been in existence since 1887. We are within walking distance of the Fort Henry Mall, Jefferson Elementary, Robinson Middle, and Dobyns-Bennett High Schools. Our visitor and handicapped parking is best accessed from Kenmore Street, then make your way around the church to the visitor and handicapped parking area near the front of the church along Center Street.

When you arrive...

When you arrive you will find ample visitor and handicapped parking. Someone from our team will greet you at the door to welcome you and can assist you with directions as needed. Make your way inside then grab some coffee and make you self at home. We have a pretty relaxed environment at The City Church so feel free to dress casual! If this is your first time, plan to arrive 25–30 minutes before service, especially if you have children, to ensure you have time to get comfortable. The City Church is known for being very friendly and welcoming of everyone, so once you get situated, feel free to grab a coffee or tea, then make yourself at home and enjoy a few minutes of fellowship before the service begins. Our service typically runs for one to one hour and 15 minutes. No matter what weekend you come you'll experience a creative service with engaging music and a message that is relevant and applicable.

Got kids? They're going to have a blast!

‍The City Church offers children’s and student's ministries uniquely designed with your child or student in mind!
