What is the churches PO Box for sending our offering?
Churches are closed for a good reason. This DOES NOT mean you are welcome to make a house call or gather at the parsonage, aka. Rev. Bob & Suzie’s house. Please have some respect for my parents & allow them to practice social distancing. If you find yourself at their door, please knock, take 6 steps back, & make sure you have a mask on. You are NOT welcome inside their house right now. If Rev. Bob invites you in out of the kindness of his heart, you can respectfully decline please.

If you need to talk, if you need prayer, or if you are having a problem he is available by phone. Please don’t put my parents at risk by coming to their house. Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe & be well.

Thank you Rev. Bob for all that you do. I have really enjoyed watching the sermons and daily talks with you and Karen. .. Happy Easter to you and Susie and Karen. . Diane "Steen" Smith.
Last year our Church put together a softball team and we had a great time! This year not everyone can attend that did, so we are looking for some new recruits! Anyone over 18 that is interested in playing slow-pitch softball at the Legion Field in Iowa Falls against other local churches let Elizabeth Cook know or comment on here! The games are later in the day on Sundays in June and July. Thanks :)
It was a great blessing to worship with you this morning. Thanks for your warm hospitality!

Giving and serving; celebrating and sharing; welcoming and affirming! No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life's journey, you'll find a welcome here!
