In light of continuing concerns about the Coronavirus, the church council has determined that our Saturday and Sunday worship services, as well as most other activities, need to remain in suspension until further notice. Members are encouraged to follow the most recent guidelines for staying healthy and safe from state and national health authorities.

Meanwhile, our radio broadcasts continue each Sunday at 11:05AM on 1230AM. You can also listen or download the worship broadcast from our website anytime.

Likewise, our phone tree continues its activities to demonstrate our unity and concern as the body of Christ in this time.

During this time of physical distancing, holy communion cannot safely be served. Christ’s presence with us remains strong as ever through scripture, prayer, and  preaching. We encourage you to make use of those.  

Thank you for understanding.


Many people ask “What does the name Elim mean?” It is mentioned in Exodus 15 as an oasis that the people of Israel found in the desert of Sinai. The founding families of Elim in the 19th century were Norwegian immigrants to Marshalltown and found the church an oasis for them in a new and strange land. Now, in the 21st century, we at Elim strive to make this congregation an oasis of refreshment for anyone and everyone who comes to us, through our worship, education and fellowship but also for our community in a variety of social ministries. We invite you to come, be refreshed, nourished for your spiritual journey and in turn, join us in helping others to receive that same aid and comfort.



Saturday Evening – 5:00 PM Temporarily Suspended
Sunday Morning – 9:00 AM  Temporarily Suspended
Sunday Morning Radio Ministry broadcast from 11:05 AM until noon. Tune into KFJB 1230AM
