Our Story

Our Local Church

Our story began in 1977, when a few families joined together for Bible Study and then for worship. For 5 years we met in the Ekstrand Elementary School gym and then met in homes for small groups and other meetings. Our commitment to children’s ministry started at the very beginning with Vacation Bible School and Bible clubs meeting in homes and backyards. We met for a few years in rental buildings before moving to our present property on the hill at the north end of DeWitt. Over the years we have had outreach to the community as a vital part of our Church mission with programs like Awana and Truth Singers playing a vital role in the ministries of our Church.

By God’s grace, members of DeWitt Evangelical Free Church have been celebrating and sharing the gospel in eastern Iowa for over 40 years.  We are a church that is committed to “knowing Christ and making him known” as we point others to the riches of God’s kindness and mercy, knowing that he has made a collection of weak and fallen people into a fruitful part of his kingdom. We look forward to seeing God’s  continued work in our community and invite you to join us in being a part of this joyous calling.

“This is the Lord’s doing and  it is marvelous in our eyes.”
(Ps. 118:23)
