Latest News

Five Presbytery of Des Moines congregations have joined the faithful ranks of churches around the country that respond with compassionate action to end hunger in a country and world that have the potential to feed everyone.

Those recognized as Covenant and Certified Hunger Action Congregations were presented at the 510th Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Des Moines at Central Presbyterian Church in Des Moines on November 14. They are:

  • Dallas Center, First Presbyterian Church
  • Des Moines, Central Presbyterian Church
  • Indianola, Trinity United Presbyterian Church
  • Newton, First Presbyterian Church
  • Oskaloosa, First Presbyterian Church

Presented by: Compassion, Peace & Justice Task Force of the Presbytery of Des Moines

We want to recognize one of the sponsoring congregations of the United Charitable Association. The organization offers safe housing, food and basic needs for persons suffering domestic abuse, transient persons, and those needing transitional housing.  They also help with finding legal assistance, counseling, or medical treatment when needed.  They describe themselves as a group of compassionate people seeing a need in their community, working together to find a solution for people who need a hand up.
