Welcome to the
Iowa Churches of Christ
mailing list!

Why are we doing this?

The idea for this service came into being right around the time of Pray Over Iowa in 1999. Each year at this great event, we share news from congregations around the state. This is one of the many great benefits of coming together each year.

It occurred to me that we could share this news without waiting all year for everyone to get together! This service was started to meet that need.

We often send flyers or letters to share news of gospel meetings, youth rallies, Ladies Days, Pray Over Iowa, Sing Over Iowa, etc. News of these events can now be quickly and freely shared among all the churches in Iowa by sending a e-mail message to a single e-mail address!

Just think of the encouragement and support that can come from sharing news like this among all the churches in Iowa!
