On Saturday, August 5, CROSS held the 25th Annual Back-to-School Giveaway for the children of low and no income families. This year a record number of 1,764 children were provided with a new backpack filled with the basic supplies needed to begin their school year. Even though we initially purchased and prepared supplies for 1,500 children, additional backpacks and materials were donated from an array of businesses, churches, and private individuals making it possible for us to continue handing out filled backpacks to an extra 264 children. 

The Presbytery of Des Moines voted unanimously on Saturday, June 3, to organize and constitute a new church in Des Moines, the First Arabic Presbyterian Church.  The church – whose members are primarily Sudanese immigrants and refugees – is a unique congregation, joined together by the common language of Arabic.* Under the Arabic umbrella, the church is able to bring together people from many different Sudanese tribes, as well as those from other Arabic-speaking countries such as Egypt, Syria and Iraq.

At the recent 508th Stated Meeting of the Presbytery of Des Moines at Collegiate Presbyterian Church in Ames, the Committee on Preparation for Ministry celebrated with three adults who have chosen to become a Teaching Elder in the PC(USA).
