We want everyone to feel welcome at Walnut Creek Church. Since visiting a new place can be a hard thing to do, we've put together some helpful information to make visiting as comfortable as possible.

Walnut Creek Church has five locations throughout the Des Moines metro area. To get started, you can check out our church-wide calendar which displays all of our services and events, or select a location for more specific information on each congregation of Walnut Creek. When you visit, make sure to check out the Welcome Center to fill out a Connect Card and receive a free gift. We would love to meet you! 


What are services like?
Our services tend to last 70-80 minutes. Since you may find yourself meeting a few new people and wanting to chat, plan for an hour and a half. Our teaching is Gospel-focused, biblical exposition that is culturally relevant and worthy of note-taking. We have study guides at our Welcome Center for each sermon series, and we recommend you check out to get a sense for what to expect.

What should I wear?
Clothes. But seriously, wear what you're comfortable in and you'll fit right in. We try not to get hung up on things like this.

What type of music do you sing?
Our bands play a variety of not-lame modern worship music and updated hymns. We really try to make our time of singing together truly Christ-focused and powerful. The lights are low and the words will be on a large screen behind the band for you to sing along. Music has always been an important part of our church, and we think you'll be encouraged by what our team puts together each week.

What is available for my kids?
Nursery care is provided during the service for babies and toddlers. Kid's Classes take place for children 3 years old through 5th grade. We also offer many weekly ministries to provide resources and support for your family.
