Central Iowa Shelter & Services

St. Mark provides and serves an evening meal six times throughout the year to approximately 200 people at Central Iowa Shelter & Services in downtown Des Moines. CISS offers temporary housing for homeless women and men in our community as well as a variety of other learning and support programs.

Upcoming serving dates in 2017 are Sunday March 5, Sunday May 7, Tuesday July 25, Thursday September 7 and Friday November 17.  Our time to volunteer is 5:30-7:30pm

You can join in this service ministry of St. Mark in these ways:

  • make a special offering of $2 to cover our cost of one meal
  • bake a pan of dessert bars
  • be one of 12-14 volunteers who go to CISS from 5:30-7:30pm  to prepare and serve the meal.
