Over 450 Walnut Creek Church members. Hundreds of organizations, non-profits, and individuals served. Four days. One city.
Since 2010, Mission to the City has been an annual opportunity for members from Walnut Creek Church to set their normal schedules aside for a weekend and devote their time to serving the Greater Des Moines area with thousands of hours of community service.
Mission to the City 2018 kicks off the evening of May 24 and runs through May 28. Teams will volunteer at more than 100 organizations, non-profits, and individual homes as well as several local churches and schools. Projects in the past have included building repair, yard work, painting, serving meals, and cleaning alleyways, trails, and parks in many Des Moines neighborhoods.
We serve simply because Jesus has called us to love our neighbors. Our desire is that Mission to the City would be a blessing to Des Moines and that as a church, we would continue to grow as servants in the community around us in light of Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 5:16, “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
