If you’re reading this message—maybe for the first time—I’m going to assume that you’re looking for a different kind of spiritual community.
A spiritual community where truly all are welcome, no matter your religious background, sexual orientation, or political affiliation. A spiritual community where people actually grow in their faith. A place where spirituality isn’t just talked about, but is lived, practiced, and prayed.
A spiritual community where faith is alive and active. A place where being and doing are both valued and kept in creative tension.
A spiritual community that acts as if God is Still Speaking—to each of us, to the Church, and to the world. This means that our job is to listen actively, with the understanding that our hearts and minds and lives will be changed.
Maquoketa United Church of Christ is a different kind of spiritual community, although we do churchy things. We worship, we pray, we serve, we learn, and we eat together. We don’t expect perfection, in ourselves or others. We leave that to God. But we are passionate, funny, and fun-loving as we journey together in faith.
The best way to learn more about our community is to join us for worship at 10 AM on Sundays, or find us on Facebook!
As you look for a new spiritual home, it is our prayer that God will guide you and bless you!
Pastor Stephanie Haskins
