Newcomers Welcome

Decorah Covenant Church is a gathering of people of all ages and backgrounds who are passionate about following Christ and following Christ together.  On Sunday mornings, you’ll find an enthusiastic welcome, great childcare, and energetic and thoughtful worship.  There are plenty of opportunities for spiritual growth and connections through the week as well, all of which seem to come back to our curious and joyful preoccupation with the Bible.    

Following Jesus is more than showing up and growing up, however.   Jesus said “You shall be my witnesses….”  We take those words seriously in a variety of mission and service efforts locally and abroad.   Some of these happen through the group of churches that we’re a part of called the “Evangelical Covenant Church.”  You can get an introduction to the Evangelical Covenant Church here.

Our mission statement says that we do all this “Motivated by the love of God.”   We believe that we respond to that amazing love when say “Yes” to following Jesus, receive the forgiveness he offers, and become a new creation through faith in him.

Decorah Covenant Church is located in the heart of downtown Decorah in a building that was originally built as a bank.   It has been completely and beautifully renovated, and yes, there’s still a vault on the premises.  The atmosphere is creative, comfortable, and encourages togetherness, so it fits our style perfectly.   You can read about how we got started and how we arrived here at our church history page.   

Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, we’re interested in getting to know you.   We hope that you’ll come with your questions, your struggles, your own history with Jesus, and the unique gifts God has given you.
