Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to dress up to attend church?

Most people dress casually, including people in a leadership role. But if you want to dress up, that’s okay, too.

Do you have an evening worship service?

Not regularly. On special occasions, as announced, there might be a Sunday evening event. However, there are Adult Bible Fellowships on Sunday morning, and other adult groups that meet during the week.

Do you have Sunday morning programs for children?

Ministry to the next generation is a vital part of our church’s mission. On Sunday mornings during our worship service we offer a safe and caring nursery for infants through age 4. We also provide a relevant Pre-K-through-5th-grade children’s church experience. Our 9:00 a.m. Sunday School hour offers programming for all ages.


What midweek programs do you offer for children and teens?

On Wednesday evenings during the school year we offer the AWANA program for children. For more information about middle school and high school programs contact the church office at 319-524-1090.

What does the term “Evangelical Free” in your name mean?

It designates our congregation as a member of the Evangelical Free Church of America. “Evangelical” refers to our belief in the authority of the Bible and salvation through faith in Christ. “Free” refers to the fact that our congregation, like other EFCA churches, is self-governing.

How often do you have Communion, and do I have to be a member of your church to receive Communion?

We usually observe Communion on the first Sunday of the month. The Communion elements are distributed through the congregation. You don’t have to be a church member to participate, but you must know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Further guidelines are found in 1 Corinthians, chapter 11.
