Value Of Faith

Spencer, IA Chamber of Commerce

Clay County’s early settlers valued the faith of their forefathers, and began to establish places of worship soon after locating to the Spencer Area in the mid 1800s. The first churches were founded by settlers who valued freedom of worship and wished to attend a house of worship that reflected the varied denominational backgrounds represented. Many of those early churches remain today, and continue to serve the communities in which they were established.
