United City is a local organization composed as a result of pursuing God’s heart for unity as expressed in John 17 and hundreds of other references throughout the Bible. They believe that whatever God is going to do in the world, He is going to do so through the Church, one that is unified.
So who makes up United City you ask? Well anyone can! It’s the collaborative efforts of people just like you, people who love Christ, His Church and are called to serve Him here in our City. They believe that God has brought us here to Lakeland, to this exact place in the world, at this exact moment in history. The goal of United City is to do the integral work that God wants to do here and now: to transform life in Lakeland through united relationships and resources.
“We believe that whatever God is going to do in the world, He is going to do so through the Church, one that is unified.”
United City wants to see our city united. They want to see churches leave the walls of their buildings and join together in united to accomplish more for the Kingdom of God. United City achieves this by holding several events through out the year. Events like See You at the Pole, National Day of Prayer and QCommons allows all kinds of people from different churches and citizens of the city of Lakeland to come together and worship the Lord.
Beyond holding events, United City is also always looking for ways to give back. After the recent disaster from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, United City have shifted their focus on to helping bring the hands and feet of Jesus to the people of this country in need of water, food, clothes and electricity.
