ONLINE SERVICES ONLY

Due to the recent decree by Governor Reynolds, and the recommendation by the  bishop of the Iowa conference of the United Methodist Church, we will not have services for at least two weeks! I will re-evaluate the situation come April 3rd in which I will determine at that time if it is safe to have services or not! Knowing that holy week is coming up and Easter we will be doing all of those Holy Week services and celebrations at some point in future. 

Please watch service on line at the normal 10:00am time .
The church’s YouTube channel can be accessed at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyx_TT 0gmbhozc5BSjcyljg or by searching for CrescoUMC on YouTube.
