City Church exists to bring the redeeming Gospel to the city who is desperately hurting and in need of hope.  Darisabel’s story is one that we will continue to share.  The Leon’s are a vital part of City Church and along with them we desire to see the Gospel shine forth and stop the violence.

Read the article in the York Daily Record.

Torres Leon and her husband, Luis A. Leon, said the past year has been difficult for their family.

Torres Leon still thinks about her granddaughter, who had lived with her grandparents until a few months before her death, every day.

She still has the pink blanket that was tucked around Darisabel at Hershey Medical Center, and a heart-shaped mold of the child’s handprint that the hospital gave her the day Darisabel died.

Kids clean up ‘their’ city

Kids clean up ‘their’ city

An encouraging story about another church in York helping kids take care of their neighborhood.  

Boccia, a member of Door of Salvation church on East Jackson Street, said whoever had the heaviest bag at the end of the morning would get a free lunch. And after just two blocks, the youth group members’ trash bags were bulging.

It’s “amazing” to see kids give up a Saturday morning to work and not even be grumpy, Boccia said.
