Awaken Women’s Conference

September 27 – 28 | Registration now open!

We’re excited to bring back the Awaken Women’s Conference this September. Our theme this year is “Breathe.” Many women feel out of breath running around, trying to balance work, kids, church, relationships, and self-care. It’s time to stop and breathe in the breath of life from the Creator! Featuring speaker Pastor Hannah Bechtel from River Valley Church and worship with Emmanuel Live, the sessions and workshops at Awaken will focus on refreshment, renewal, and transformation by the very breath of God. For conference schedule, workshops, and registration, click below.



College-Age: Chi Alpha Retreat

September 27 – 29 | To sign up, give $50 registration to Pastor Austin

Join us at Fall Retreat along with all the Chi Alpha (XA) ministries from across the state including Iowa, ISU, UNI and Drake. As the school year gets going we can easily lose sight of who we really want to be. Fall Retreat is a great opportunity to recalibrate to the identity we find in Jesus and experience the freedom and boldness we find in the Holy Spirit. There will be specific breakouts on topics relevant to students, plus hang-out time, zip lines, rock wall, bonfires, pizza, s’mores, and more!
