About Us

McGuire Bend United Brethern Church was founded in 1890, in the aftermath of the 1889 division of the United Brethern in Christ over whether or not to adopt a new constitution. We are part of the "Old Constitution" church. Our present building was built in 1964 after the original building was destroyed in an arson fire.
We are a small, loving congregation, dedicated to making Christs salvation from sin known to all. We are nestled in the timber close to the Des Moines River. We are centered between the towns of Dayton, Lehigh, and Stratford.
We have a youth and adult sunday school, monthly ladies meetings, adult bible study, yearly ice cream social,  yearly Fall supper and bazaar. Our doors and hearts are always open to welcome visitors. Sunday school is at 9:30AM and Worship at 10:30AM. Sunday School is year round.
Our address in 3138 McGuire Bend Rd, Dayton (take Vasse Ave to McGuire Bend RD). The Church phone number is 515-547-2339. We are currently utilizing lay speakers. Jeff Nemechek from Dayton, Paul Wierson from Story City, and Mike Huss from Boone. Please contact a member if interested in speaking.
