Live-streaming and Children's Worship & Wonder: 11am Service


What To Expect

Celebrating the Sacred and the Secular

Worship is lovely, joyful, intellectually stimulating, artistic, and creative. It is never boring, irrelevant, judgmental, or exclusive. We walk humbly in our worship, wrestling together with the deep questions of life. 

Excellent Music

Music moves us!  Expect excellence: live, lovely music that points to our themes of peace, justice, love, and hope. Des Moines-area musicians lead our music with a variety of styles.  Expect a diversity of artists and inclusive language.

Powerful Preaching

Ancient Sacred Stories and Modern Conversation: Pastor Debbie's  preaching is Spirit-filled, compelling and relevant!

Shared Feast

"Taste and See That God is Good!" Psalm 34:8 

You are always invited to Christ's welcome table. We share bread and cup as we break open our lives with one another.  Our weekly communion feast reminds us we are one with the earth, Christ, and community. Communion nourishes us to do justice, love kindness, and move humbly in our work and play.  All are welcome at our table. We celebrate with fresh baked bread and grape juice as well as offer gluten-free/D-dairy-free bread so all can participate. 


Radical Welcome

We are LGBTQIA+ affirming and welcoming of people of diverse theological perspectives, faith paths, gender identity, sexuality, and abilities. We use inclusive and expansive language for the Divine and humanity. Children are always welcome and engaged! We are, and always have been #BlackLivesMatter Proclaiming.


You are invited to dress comfortably.  Our worship space is wheelchair accessible with a gender-inclusive restroom.


Children are always welcome and engaged in  worship! We also offer Children's Godly Play led by our Director of Children and Youth Ministry!
