We are a family with three young children, considering a move to Dubuque. Coming from MI and involved in our contemporary Christian church. I have read the posts about the area being a high population of Catholic. Can anyone tell me of a church nearby that would fit our families need. Our kids are involved in an excellent church children's program and we all love our church in MI - sad to leave it and can't live without something along the same line.

Before we moved to Des Moines I looked a ton of churches up online. One of the things I noticed as I was searching was the high number of both Catholic and Lutheran churches, which was a change from the places we had lived previously. Anyway, solely through browsing the various church websites, reading the "What we believe" section most churches include on their sites, and listening to a few sermons online I was able to narrow down the churches I thought we would want to attend. So far we have only visited two and I am pretty sure we have found a place to call "home".

I did a quick google of Dubuque churches for you. You might want to check out these church websites and see if any of them appeal to you. You can usually get an idea of how large a church is by how many activities are offered throughout the week as well as the number of people they have on staff. Just a disclaimer, I haven't ever attended any of these churches so I know nothing about them. Also, there might be churches in the area that don't have websites or that I somehow missed, so this list is definitely not exhaustive.

New Life Church - Home
Miracle Harvest Church Home
Assembly of God, Dubuque - Home . . . .
GracePoint Homepage Info | GracePoint Church

If none of these look like your kind of church, you might want to try doing a search yourself to see what you come up with. Also, if there is a specific denomination you are affiliated with, you can find the website for that denomination and use their "Find a Church" feature to search the Dubuque area. Best of luck!
