The Moravia Lighthouse Church of the Nazarene offers activities for many interests on Wednesday nights.

There’s a new face at Iowa Churches of the Nazarene. The parish is proud to welcome new district superintendent Rev. Kim Smith. Smith will serve as the 16th district superintendant of the Iowa District Churches of the Nazarene. The district includes more than 50 churches, including several Appanoose county area churches.

This isn’t Smith’s first rodeo.  He first began pastoring in 1980 upon graduation from MidAmerica Nazarene University. Since then he’s been a part of churches in several states, including Oklahoma, Florida, Illinois and Tennessee.  He comes to Iowa after having served as the senior pastor of the First Church of the Nazarene Community of Hope in Clarksville, Tenn., for 14 years.

His goals have always been to help people meet Christ and develop a strong relationship.  With 33 years of pastor work under his belt, Smith is sure to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the community.

The new reverend isn’t the only new thing about Iowa Churches of the Nazarene, either. The association has recently unveiled a new website. The name may be the same, but everything else has changed. The page has been completely redone and updated with pictures, interactive features and much more. The aesthetically pleasing look and easy to navigate site makes it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. Click around at

Moravia Lighthouse Church of the Nazarene would like to remind everyone that Wednesdays are big and encourages everyone to get involved this fall with one of their many Wednesday night activities. There are numerous Bible studies, a teen group and, for the musically inclined, there’s a choir as well as an orchestra. Not to mention the church’s 7 p.m. Wednesday worship. With so many options, there’s something for everyone.

For more information on the church, check out its website at or stop by at 405 Myra Lane in Moravia.
