No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life's journey, you are welcome at Edwards Congregational United Church of Christ. We are a dynamic congregation with a rich history in the Quad Cities, and an exciting ministry to the community.

In Christ we celebrate a living faith, as we worship, care for one another, and reach out to all.

We are a church that:

  • Takes the Bible seriously, but not literally
  • Worships God with joyful hearts and open minds
  • Includes children in the life and ministry of the church
  • Seeks to be inclusive of all people
  • Is committed to the work of justice for all people
  • Cares for one another, laughs easily, and trusts God
  • Looks to Jesus as Teacher, Friend and Savior
  • Is Open and Affirming

Find Us

We are located atop a hill with a lush lawn to the street. Our building includes a sanctuary which seats 170, a fellowship hall with a capacity of 120 to 175, and an educational wing with 7 rooms, including a nursery. Behind the building, to the west, is a large parking lot. The building, built in the late 1950's, is mortgage free, and we completed a building expansion in 1998 to accommodate a new Cassavant pipe organ. This expansion was funded 100% by the members, and again is mortgage free. Professional contractors, a paid custodian, and volunteer work accomplish building maintenance. A major addition was added in 2012 which expanded our Narthex, gave us new and much needed office space; most importantly it gave a new and welcoming 'front door' to our church.
