Welcome

Dear Members and Friends of Edwards UCC,

During this period of physical distancing, we still continue social connecting! We invite you to participate in our Sunday services, Coffee Hour, and Bible Study via Zoom. Church has never been about the building and we hope that you will join us in faith and spirit. Login instructions for Zoom are automatically sent to members and regular visitors.  If you would like to be included, please email secretary@edwards-ucc.org

VBS (Virtual Bible School) will be July 27-31. This will be a 90% virtual VBS with one opportunity to gather in person to do safe social distancing lawn games and pick up instructions and supplies. Pick up of materials will be Sunday, July 26, from 4:00-5:00. Please email secretary@edwards-ucc.org or call Cathie Miller at 563-343-9535 to register.

The Caregiving program is one of the strengths of Edwards and continues. Pastor Lisa, Caregiver Coordinator Mary Ostrom, and other members of the congregation are here to help any member in need. Please reach out to Pastor Lisa or Mary with prayer requests or need for more practical assistance. You can call/text Pastor Lisa at 563-468-1531 or email her at pastor@edwards-ucc.org. (Pastor Lisa will be on vacation from July 27-August 9). Mary can be called at 563-386-0618 or emailed at maryostrom@mchsi.com.

For the safety of our members and friends, all worship services are virtual for the time being. Our services are posted on our YouTube channel early Sunday mornings. Please join us through the link at left or by searching Edwards UCC Davenport on YouTube. Then join us on Zoom for Coffee Hour at 11:00.
