WHO IS CITY OF JOY

City of Joy is a church plant in Union City, NJ. We are a community church with the purpose of encouraging individuals to growth in a relationship with Jesus. We want to be a community that proclaims and intentionally live the Gospel and Great Commission with Joy. By doing this Monday thru Saturday will be as important as Sunday in building dwellings of Hope and Joy beyond four walls where God’s Love, Hope and Grace is experienced for the glory of God and the good of each individual and City.

WHY UNION CITY

The area of Union City, NJ is the closest out of state urban city to the center of Mid-town New York City. The City of Union City has a population of 67, 187 people in a 1.3 sq. miles (3.367 km²) area. Union City it’s categorized by The State of New Jersey Department of Community Affairs as a low-income urban community that needs to be revitalized economically. This together with a 12.8% unemployment rate as of December 2012 makes Union City, NJ one of the most needy and underprivileged areas of New Jersey. It is our goal to serve as Phillip did when he went to Samaria to proclaim Christ and bring to a City the Hope, Love and Joy that only Christ can provide.
