Welcome to the website of the First Congregational Church of Stuart, Iowa.
Whether you're here on purpose or by accident, we’re glad you found us! 

Explore our website to get a sense of who we are and what we believe. 
We hope you'll come away with the message that we're all about God --
honoring Him, worshiping Him, and serving Him!

Our aim is to be God-centered and Christ-exalting in all we do. 
We are an independent evangelical Bible church.
We honor the Word of God and highly value the teaching of the Bible for all ages,
through classes, programs and expository preaching. 

We also value our relationships with one another as a family of believers
and we're purposeful in our efforts to  strengthen those bonds.

Further, we seek to help and serve our community and the surrounding area
through projects and outreach.
