Welcome to the Des Moines Church of Christ! We’re glad you’re here!
Welcome to the Des Moines Church of Christ! In September 2012, God assembled a team of 18 devoted disciples from around the Midwest to plant the Des Moines Church of Christ. Back then our mission was to courageously lead people to full devotion to Christ—with the Bible as our guide. Today our mission remains the same. We are just as committed now to helping each other lead lives devoted to Jesus, and helping people from all backgrounds develop their spiritual lives.
Regardless of where you are on your path to finding and following Jesus, we’re sure you’ll find our fellowship welcoming, and our teaching inspiring and relevant to your life. Whether you’re interested in coming to one of our services, attending one of our special events or meeting with a small group of Christians in your community, we hope that you will give us the opportunity to meet you.
What are your services like?
Before service begins you will find people talking and enjoying a cup of coffee and a pastry. If you have children, you can begin to check your children into our Kingdom Kids program at 10:15am. People describe our worship services as worshipful, energetic and loving. Our Sunday services typically last no longer than 90 minutes and include plenty of singing/worship, a reflective communion message, a life-guiding sermon, and warm and meaningful fellowship.
What should I wear?
When you come to our services you will find a casual and comfortable environment where people are wearing everything from shorts to dresses. Please wear what you feel comfortable worshipping God in. We are confident that you will feel welcomed regardless of what you are wearing.
What’s expected of first-time visitors?
Nothing! Rest assured we’re not going to ask you to raise your hand, stand up or come up front. You’re sure to meet warm, friendly people at our services, but you won’t be singled out. There are no expectations for you as a guest.
What about my kids?
We want to make sure that both children and adults enjoy an encouraging and inspiring time each Sunday. During worship services, we offer a Kingdom Kids program for infants (6 months and older) through 6th graders, allowing parents to attend the worship service, while children enjoy an age-appropriate time of learning, singing, and fun. Check in time begins at 10:15am. When you arrive, greeters will show you how to get your children checked into their classes.
How do I become a member?
We believe that the church is simply a body of believers who have become true disciples of Jesus. If you want to be a part of this body, the first step is to study the bible to find out what Jesus expects of His followers. To set up a personal bible study or to attend a group bible study in your neighborhood, please drop us an email or a phone call and it would be our pleasure to help get you connected.
