Iowa Churches of Christ
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
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!
