Descriptions of Worship
We have two primary worship celebrations:
9:30 a.m. Grapevine
The Grapevine is an alternative worship experience at 9:30 a.m. at Spaghetti Works (310 Court Ave.) in downtown Des Moines. The front door will be open Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. for a free continental breakfast and conversation.
10:30 a.m. Worship
This service includes the best of traditional worship, with songs and carols sung from the hymnal, led by the pipe organ and choirs. Gathering together in our historic and recently renovated sanctuary helps us experience the transcendence and majesty of God. Our worship is rooted in the weekly reading of scriptures based on the Revised Common Lectionary. That means that we read the same scripture texts as millions of other Christians around the world on any given Sunday.
In addition to worship, church school begins at 9:15 a.m.
Nursery care is provided during Sunday school and the the 10:30 a.m. service.
