You have an opportunity to shape how $37 million is spent in Des Moines. 

In June, Des Moines City Manager Scott Sanders attended our AMOS Economic Summit and made a commitment to work with AMOS to include our constituents’ priorities in a one-cent sales tax increase to be placed on the ballot in 2019.


How will we determine our proposal? This summer, AMOS institutions in Des Moines are engaging families in conversations about the needs in our neighborhoods and what it is worth raising our taxes to fund, through dozens of house meetings and neighborhood walks. Out of these conversations, leaders from all our Des Moines institutions, including this church, will craft a proposal which we will ask the city to include when they vote on the ballot language this Fall.


Join us as we engage with our neighbors in this important conversation.


Wednesday, September 16, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. - Conversation and Prayer

First part of “Akeelah and the Bee” – a two-part movie marathon and discussion in the sanctuary.

Tuesday, September 25 – evening meal at Central Iowa Shelter and Services

We will share this meal with Glen Echo to explore the possibility of CHCC becoming involved in this mission.

Central Iowa Shelter and Services is the largest homeless shelter in Iowa. Its mission is to provide low-barrier shelter, meals and support services at no cost to adults experiencing homelessness and to facilitate their move toward self-sufficiency.



Sunday, September 30, 10 a.m. Worship – Reconciliation Offering

The Reconciliation Special Offering is used to fund our Church’s mission imperative to become a pro-reconciling and anti-racist church utilizing experiential education, inclusive worship and intentional dialogue. Our efforts to promote healing, relationship and restoration in the whole family of God are enlivened by funds from this offering. Through it we can provide programs for leadership development, curriculum for dialogue and learning, and partnerships within the Church and our communities.
