Individual members of the congregation serve in numerous ways in the community and through mission work overseas—as medical professionals, builders, social workers, lawyers, and many others. The congregation has a long history of pulling together to serve when and where needed, both near and far.
Our small congregation is pleased to join other community members and faith-based organizations through the Des Moines Area Religious Council to serve our neighbors in need. On our designated Sunday(s) each month, we gather food and items to directly support the housing stability program, the child care assistance program, and the food pantry. You are also likely to find members of our congregation volunteering in the food pantry on other days as well!
Vacation Bible School
Every year we "celebrate" our youngest members with a fun and fabulous Vacation Bible School weekend. With an outdoor theme and an overnight stay at the church, our children spend their time by learning new songs, watching the Scriptures come to life through drama, and participating in service projects.
Des Moines Homeless Shelter
Twice a year we pull everyone together to help feed the homeless in Des Moines. We are responsible for an evening meal at the Central Iowa Homeless Shelter; we often serve over 200 people.
