Iowa church becomes a haven for tornado-ravaged community

Iowa is still reeling from a dozen tornadoes that slashed through the state one night in July, leaving behind extensive property damage. Marshalltown, a community of about 25,000 residents, suffered catastrophic damage to its downtown area. While not unscathed from a EF-3 tornado that tore through town, First Presbyterian Church was more fortunate than most. In the storm’s aftermath, it has been focused on rebuilding and healing through worship and community service to those affected by the disaster.
