Church by the River

Join us for worship at 9:00 on Sunday morning

We have a casual style and worshipful attitude and a classic four-fold order:

  • we gather in humility
  • we hear the Word in sermon and song
  • we respond with commitment and communion
  • we bear witness in the world

This week's sermon looks at Jesus' confusing promise, "My yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Come to the table, celebrate communion on the first Sunday each month.

COVID-19 worship adjustments include:

  • distancing upon entering, exiting, and within the sanctuary
  • humming rather than singing
  • masks as each one is comfortable
  • no passing trays for offering or communion
  • smiles from a distance

Thank you to all who celebrated Independence Day watching the fireworks show from the grounds of Keokuk Presbyterian Church by the River! We estimate at least 350 people used our two parking areas and lawn and we were happy to host all who came. This was my first year in town (am a Texas transplant) and I did not know what to expect, except a big mess to clean up the morning after.

I was pleasantly surprised by two things! First, there was virtually no trash to pick up. Thank you for respecting the church grounds. And second, we had no arguments about reserving the back lot closest to the riverfront for handicapped parking.

In all, this southerner is very impressed with Midwest Hospitality! Y'all come back now, ya' hear!
