Our Services


What to Expect

What are services like?
Our weekly gatherings are a time to come together to worship our God. While the church is much bigger than Sunday mornings, we highly value these gatherings as a time for the broader church family to gather together around the preaching of the word, the eucharist of Christ's body and blood, giving of resources to the life of the church body, and communal celebration of who God is and what He is doing in our lives. Our church seeks to create expressions of worship that become tangible encounters with God. Through the word, the body, the sacraments, art, prayer, and music, we will seek to create a holy space where people can encounter the living Christ. Our goal is to help you make sense of following Jesus at this time in history in the context of Des Moines. We work hard to translate the scriptures from their first-century setting into our context. Our music is passionate and reverent, combining songs from the ancient church with pieces from our own musicians and the contemporary church.

What is the community like?
Our community is vibrant, diverse, authentic and full of love.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome!
