HarvestLife Christian Fellowship (HCF)

601 Second Avenue SE
Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52401

If you are looking for a traditional Church experience where you attend, listen to some songs and a sermon... then this is not for you. At HCF we love God first. This is a family that cultivates intentional relationships with Christ and one another. Relationships where you can get down to business and truly get honest with one another are life giving. Some tend to avoid relationships, but only because we have rarely seen them done well. Friendships born out of this community give us a place to rest; a place where we can be ourselves. We further seek to develop each other to Christ-like maturity, and be equipped for ministry and purpose in the world, in order to glorify Jesus.
