Before a Church... Before a Name...
An early Worship Bulletin said:
"We welcome you to the newest United Methodist Church in the Des Moines area, perhaps in the entire state.
It is so new that we do not have a church building or even a name but we have faith and as long as we have faith, our needs will be given to us."
Our first church - in a gymnasium!
This was a congregation that had its start in a school gymnasium with flexible seating, a portable altar and an enthusiastic choir, where young and old could shoot baskets after a worship service and a potluck!
