Church Rental

Property Policy

Kalona United Methodist Church was build by people with a vision: a great love for God, and a ministry in the community. We encourage friends and members of this church to use it for large family gatherins, funerals, anniversary celebrations, weddings and other special occasions. This church was not build with selfish intent, but rather, as a place which could serve the community. Community groups are encouraged to feel welcome to reserve the facility.  Because KUMC is an important part of our lives and the center of our worship, we hope everyone will treat it with respect.
