A space for telling stories about the church and the people who gather here.
In late October, DMMC received news from the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants office in Des Moines that their shelves were almost empty. Important resources for new families such as blankets, coats, and winter clothing were needed immediately.
Over the course of three weeks, DMMC sprung into action! Generous donations of necessary items were collected and additional funds were raised to increase USCRI’s supply of important resources.
Following the worship service on Sunday, November 18, the DMMC Youth group went on a shopping trip together to purchase extra items with funds that were raised in previous weeks. Afterward, they dropped off items at the USCRI office and spent some time learning more about their mission of serving uprooted people who are seeking to begin a new life in Des Moines.
It was fitting to see this story of DMMC’s generosity coincide with a sermon series on abundant living. Just as God has given abundantly to us, we can give abundantly to our neighbors in Des Moines!
