WELCOME TO

WEST DES MOINES UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

 

Come as you are. We honor and welcome the diversity you bring.

Please pray this prayer each day

God, you give us life.  When we might give up or give in, you refresh our lives.  When we wonder or worry about the way ahead, you sustain us with life-giving wisdom.  May the plans we make today be our way of saying thank you.  May our work bring life-giving grace to others.  The world so desperately needs the life you offer.  Amen.
