Very cool! I am from Iowa, originally (Davenport), but I have not lived there in many years. It's nice to see the East there!

Where is this at in Iowa?

Also, is this in someone's home? Or do you guys have your own church?

Muscatine, which is where the Mississippi turns south after flowing westward from the Quad Cities. We are not in someone's house, though I think the building may have started out as a 1950s ranch-style house. It was a restaurant before we moved it, but completely gutted and remodeled, so it is mostly a wide open space and has two restrooms, a mechanical room and an old restroom that we converted into a confessional/quiet room. There is an addition where we have our hall. We are in a commercial area-there is a laundromat next door, a dance studio, a liquor store, Asian Massage parlor, a non-profit that promotes diversity, and a hair salon. All these are in different buildings, but we have a common parking lot. Heinz foods has a factory across the street (it is where they make their ketchup, among other things).

Sounds like a unique opportunity to evangelize :-)

Modern America is a funny place.
