Currently we are offering a Wednesday Night Bible Study, at 6:30pm in-person and online on Facebook and Youtube. And a Sunday night online zoom call with the young families Gathering group. If you’re interested in joining a group please contact the church office at (319) 524-5266.
During a more normal year our LIFE Groups are as listed below.
Each week we offer a variety of opportunities to join in learning and fellowship with a LIFE group. Unlike straightforward Bible studies, we learn to be disciples and share the good news of Jesus Christ by digging into God’s story to discover how it intersects with our lives today. All are invited to come and take part in a LIFE group that works best for you.
