Did you know our church has two active Prayer Chains?  One is made up of the Elders and the other is Consistory members.  The Prayer Chains are a group of people who are contacted by email or phone to pray for the leaders and ministries of 1st UCC and for any prayer requests we receive during the week.  Please call Debbie Bliesener at 319-457-3468 or Mark Weiler at 319-754 -5889.  Share brief details so that others can pray for your situation. 
We now have our own email address.  Please see above under the Events label.

We are going to start getting back to a few more normal things.  Starting in May, we will be having a greeter to hand out bulletins, we will be passing the offering plate and we will be passing communion.  The communion will still be the ones we have been using so as no one will be touching any ones bread.  We may get back to the passing of bread and juice or wine but we are toing to use what we have first.  There is hand sanitizer in the pews if yo uhave a problem with touching any of the trays.  Grapes will still be in individual bags for now and will be handed out.
