Here to There: A Renewed Expression of Methodism

After a series of in-person meetings across the state of Iowa, we are proud to release the presentations and resource booklet from the recent "Here to There" events. The brief presentations cover a variety of topics including looking at our past and dreaming about our future; and the resource booklet includes articles and information for your reading and further discussion within your local church.

Please watch and read these items and then, most importantly, share them with others. If the Iowa WCA can be of assistance to you in this time, please do not hesitate to reach out at
