Latest News

In the summer of 2014 the Presbytery of Des Moines voted to establish a Mission Center in the former Cottage Grove Presbyterian Church building, located at the corner of Cottage Grove Avenue and 24th Street in Des Moines.  Since that time, a team of volunteers (called the Covenant Council) has been diligently working to transform the building into a welcoming, safe and sacred place to meet the needs of many.

On May 29, four members of the Presbytery of Des Moines left for their final Joining Hands visit to our partners in Egypt. There was a bittersweet feeling as preparations were made, but this quickly changed to an air of celebration when the group arrived in Egypt. Since the launch of the Joining Hands initiative in 2000, the Presbytery of Des Moines has partnered with a network of churches, nongovernmental organizations, and grassroots associations to identify and address root causes of hunger and poverty through collaboration and advocacy. 

The Cottage Grove Presbyterian Mission Center has a new logo! The logo, designed by Cindy Eaton-Eklund, Communications Coordinator for the Presbytery of Des Moines, beautifully symbolizes the vision and mission of the Mission Center. It subtly incorporates elements from the PC(USA) logo which Presbyterians may recognize, but even to those who are not Presbyterian, these design element will be attractive and meaningful.
