We're made up of people from Riverside, Kalona, Iowa City, and surrounding communities, with a desire to glorify God and enjoy him both now and forever. We care about small town Iowa and want to see hope and healing come to those who feel abandoned and forgotten.

a study on the parables of the kingdom

Summer 2019

One of the primary themes of Jesus’ teaching is the kingdom of heaven. After his baptism and subsequent temptation, Jesus began to teach and preach in towns and villages everywhere, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Jesus would go on to tell short stories, called parables, to explain what the kingdom was like. We’re going to take the summer to examine the Kingdom Parables in the book of Matthew (and some from Luke), to help us understand what kind of kingdom Jesus is saying is already here, but not yet completely here, and more importantly, what the King is setting out to accomplish. Hope you can join us!


“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf: ‘Be reconciled to God.’”
