West Des Moines Christian Church was established in 1890 and is the oldest church in West Des Moines. We began our ministry above a store in Valley Junction; in 1893 we built our first church building at 6th and Elm Streets. In the spring of 2007, we continued our growth by opening our amazing new sanctuary. Our desire to be a caring church for a growing community has led us to add new programming, additional staff and new opportunities in worship, service, education, music, spiritual growth, fellowship and sports.
