Join us for Worship on Sunday, June 5, 2022, at 9:00 AM

at the 
MidAmerican Energy RecPlex
6500 Grand Ave, West Des Moines, IA 50266

Elijah/Elisha service of Word & Table
(includes the Retirement and Ordering of Ministry Service)

Ben Allaway will be in charge of the music for this service on-site at Annual Conference and First Church’s worship musicians will be involved in this service.

Live stream will be shown at First Church for the 10:30 AM Service
(there will not be a live worship service in the sanctuary)


Since Pastor Edgar and Ben and our music team will be leading worship at the Iowa Annual Conference out at the RecPlex in WDM on Sunday, June 5 (yes, in a hockey rink!). YOU ARE INVITED to attend the service, or come to First Church and watch the Live Stream. Special Prelude Music starts at 8:40 am, Service 9:00-11:00 am. It’s a longer service which recognizes retiring clergy and ordains new pastors, but don’t miss the ending—“Ev’rybody In” and “From This House” with 900 people, and an amazing Latin version of “We Are One in the Spirit.” Hear our brass, timpani and rhythm section with Special Guests ROB LUMBARD on guitar and EDDIE WEST on Latin percussion. Pastor Edgar will also participate in a group that will sing, read and pray in six different languages!  So LIVE or LIVESTREAM, that is the question!
