Fellowship is one the best ways to commune and share one’s love in Christ. Clive churches offer a multitude of activities for locals to do just that, and participating is a wholesome and healthy way of getting off the couch and getting through March, as people await the dawn of spring. Such activities include dinners, fundraisers and other social events geared toward kids, teens and adults. Christians of Clive have a variety of opportunities to stretch their legs in Christ.
Heartland Presbyterian, 14300 Hickman Road, opens its doors to youth by offering a weekly meeting of the Scouts Troop 208.
