“Pella 2” was founded 1897. Over 100 years later, this multi-generational congregation on a mission to love God through worship, love one another through discipleship and fellowship, and lovpellae the world through evangelism and ministry. The mission is energized by a love for music, prayer, Bible study, generosity, and service to the community. In order to better accomplish that mission, the congregation recently decided to relocate its ministry and construct a new facility.
