First Christian Church of Keokuk, Iowa

Need Help?

First Christian Church of Keokuk is a member of Charity Tracker and as such, we work in conjunction with the local Salvation Army. We also work in partnership with Community Action Agencies of Keokuk and help support the God’s Way Christian Church outreach ministries. If you find yourself in need of food, shelter, or assistance, we encourage you to contact these agencies first.

Utilities Assistance:

We work in conjunction with The Salvation Army and Community Action to assist with utilities. We ask that you contact Salvation Army first, which may include an interview/meeting to register your income/expenses information with Charity Tracker. Once that is accomplished, if you are still in need of assistance, call and make an appointment with Community Action. We will need the responses from both of those agencies before we can assist you. Assistance varies as funds are available. You may also be encouraged to contact other area churches and agencies.

An additional local resource is Limited Resources, which is administered through Community Action by appointment.
