We have Sunday School at 9AM and a Wednesday Night Kids Program during the school year that is filled with scripture and fun.

A free meal is served before we begin. In addition to Sunday School and Wednesday night program, we also send our kids to a variety of conferences and camps.
We hold men’s bible studies throughout the year.
We hold women’s bible studies and have a variety of events throughout the year. In the past, the women have had a great time shopping, playing Turkey bingo, and studying the bible.
To help us live out the Gospel, we as a church can come together in “Life Groups” to encourage each other, nurture each other through the joys and struggles of life, and point one another and others to Christ.
If you would like to be plugged into a Life Group, please contact the church at 319-984-5947 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to take this faith journey with you!
