Ministries We Support

West Des Moines Human Services

The organization has been assisting low-income, elderly, and disabled residents since 1979. They currently provide assistance to more than 1,600 households in West Des Moines and surrounding western suburbs. Examples of their help includes emergency assistance for rent and utilities, transportation, handyman services, youth recreational assistance, clothing and food assistance in addition to many other programs for those struggling with poverty.

Des Moines Area Religious Council – Personal Products Pantry

Do you have a drawer full of those little soaps and shampoos that you get when you travel? St. Mark collects those for the Des Moines Area Religious Council Personal Products Pantry. There is a basket in the Community Service corner of Fellowship Hall for the collection of these items.  These items are taken to West Des Moines Human Services where they are distributed free to local residents who otherwise would go without.
