In the City for Good!

St. John's Lutheran Church participates in God's mission to bless, save, restore and reconcile the world through meaningful worship and faithful witness in the city of Des Moines and around the world.

St. John's Lutheran Church invites and welcomes all people to experience the Good News of God's grace, forgiveness and unfailing love. The Good News calls and empowers us to share God's love in word and deed throughout our city, nation and world.

In preparation for this campaign we have carefully evaluated St. John’s present physical space and discussed at length how the physical presence both enhances and hinders our response to God’s call to share God’s love with the world.

We have a beautiful house that has been well-cared-for over the years, but care for such a facility must also take into account the changing face of mission and ministry in the 21st century.  We believe that there are a number of improvements which could make this house a more inviting, welcoming, and flexible space for our members and the community at large.

Please join us in supporting the three-year pledge commitment to this campaign with your generosity.
