In 2017 we moved into a magnificent new home in Coralville that is filled with light, connected intimately to the surrounding woodlands, and powered by solar and geothermal energy.
Location & services
We have recently moved into our beautiful new home at 2355 Oakdale Rd. in Coralville. Sunday services begin at 9:30 a.m.
Fall 2018 road construction
The City of Coralviille is rebuilding Coral Ridge Ave. (Hwy 965) between Oakdale Blvd. and Forever Green Rd., causing delays on both the highway and on Oakdale Rd. Rather than traveling south on Highway 965, you may want to choose an alternate route, such as Forevergreen Rd. to 12th Ave., or University Parkway to Oakdale Blvd. Construction is expected to be complete in Dec. 2018. More information and regular updates can be found on the City of Coralville website.
Events & activities
In addition to Sunday services, we offer a wide range of events and activities.You will find opportunities to explore your spirituality, serve the wider community, build relationships over shared interests, enjoy a meal with new friends, and many other ways to get involved.
Our new home
Moving from our long-time home in downtown Iowa City was not an easy decision, but our growing community realized that it had outgrown the space and could better live out our values in a larger building with better accessibility.
Connected to nature
Our eight-acre property is a peaceful sanctuary filled with trees, trails, gardens, and outdoor play/learning spaces. Our sanctuary was designed with tall glass walls to allow an immersion in the beauty of our woodlands during services and events.
Greenest church in Iowa
More than just creating a restful place to enjoy nature, we committed ourselves from the beginning to the goal of building the “greenest church in Iowa.” Our aim was not to claim bragging rights, but to help educate and inspire others as we live out our own commitment to care for the earth.
The new facility uses active and passive solar energy with the goal of producing as much electricity as we consume. Energy is further conserved with geothermal heating and efficient lighting and appliances. Water is conserved on the site by using bioretention swales, and building materials were chosen why an eye toward sustainability and carbon neutrality.
Weddings & events
We are excited to provide an eco-conscious, relaxing, and functional space for many others to enjoy. It is an excellent venue for weddings, retreats, workshops, concerts, and meetings.
