On Sunday, February 7, 2016, the Rev. Don Stribling was installed as Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Oskaloosa, IA.

On Sunday, February 21, 2016, Commissioned Ruling Elder Melanie Halferty was installed as Pastor of United Presbyterian Church of Allerton, Iowa.  Pictured is Ruling Elder Maurice Dyer, moderator of the Presbytery, CRE Halferty and Bill Homann, clerk of session of the church.

Ordinations are always a cause to celebrate. New church starts are nearly unheard of these days. And providing a worship experience for the Arabic-Speaking Community is no everyday occurance. Yet the Presbytery of Des Moines is honored tohave experienced all three on Sunday, Nov. 15, at the Cottage Grove Presbyterian Mission Center.

That's when Ekram Kachu, who came to the United States from Khartoum, Sudan, was ordained as an elder in the Presbyterian Church, and then commissioned as a CRE (Commissioned Ruling Elder). Congratulations to Ekram and to her family!
