QCA Church Marks 175th Anniversary

Posted: Updated:

A Davenport church is celebrating a big milestone this weekend. Sunday was the First Christian Church Disciples of Christ's 175th anniversary.

The church was founded back in 1839, when Iowa wasn't even a state yet.

People celebrated the anniversary this weekend with church services, a big feast, and a reunion with the church's former ministers.

Officials say the church has changed and grown over the years, but the commitment of the congregation has stayed strong.

"It shows a legacy of faithful people who have made Davenport their home and have wanted to share the love of Christ in this community," said First Christian Church Pastor Rev. Linda Hunsaker.

Church leaders say the congregation is very involved in the community and that new members are always welcome.
