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.
Music moves us! Expect excellence in music. Live, lovely music that points to our themes of peace, justice, love, hope. Des Moines area musicians lead our music with a variety of styles. Expect a diversity of artists and inclusive language.
Ancient Sacred Stories and Modern Conversation: Our Pastor is anything but boring! She challenges us with relevant, theologically challenging interpretations of the old, old stories. She’s Spirit-filled, passionate, and progressive. Pastor Debbie received the 2018 Capital City Pride Ally of the Year Award.
"Taste and See That God is Good!" Psalm 34:8 You are always invited to Christ's welcome table. We share delicious fresh baked 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 walk humbly in our work and play. All are welcome at our table. We celebrate with grape juice and delicious fresh baked bread. Gluten free bread is also available.
We are LGBTQIA+ affirming and welcoming of people of diverse theological perspectives, faith paths, gender identity, sexuality, and abilities. Language is important and we treat it with respect. We use inclusive and expansive language for the Divine and humanity. Children are always welcome and engaged! We welcome and affirm gender diversity. We are, and always have been #BlackLivesMatter Proclaiming
individuals and families with gender diverse children. You are invited to dress however you are comfortable. Our worship space is wheelchair accessible and has gender inclusive restrooms.
Supervised Nursery Care is Available at the 11am worship service.
Children are always welcome and engaged in both worship services.
