New Disciples of Cedar Rapids
Who We Are
We are a new church that was born from the merger of two respected churches in our community. As a new church, we are excited about our future and invite you to be a part of our creative process as we discover who God is calling us to be in this time and place.
Communion is a central part of our weekly worship service. We offer a variety of styles of small groups (Bible study, prayer, service & mission, youth), which we call Disciple Groups. We are a congregation that is open to questions and dialogue. We confess faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord - but truly welcome anyone who is just exploring Christianity - a confession of faith is not required to be considered an active member of our community. We practice baptism by immersion by those able to confess faith for him/herself. We value discerning the movement of the Holy Spirit while valuing both an intelligent and practical faith.
We currently meet in a storefront near the west-side post office, but have purchased 10 acres of land between Menards and Highway 30.
Currently we are in relationship with several families who have come to Iowa as refugees from central Africa and we hope to partner with the African church.
What Members SayAdd your voice
HeidiNew Disciples is my old-new church home. Two separate local congregations faced declining attendance, a flood, a changing attitude and they have come together with a renewed spirit and sense of purpose. We are deliberately looking at what we do and why we do it, drawing from scripture and prayer. We have a welcoming heart. We have a strong tradition of music. Newcomers can expect to be greeted but not smothered. We will listen to your questions and your concerns about living in Cedar Rapids in the 21st century and how God is playing a role in your life.
