Weekly Ministries

Sunday Morning:
Please see our Sunday Mornings page.

Coffee Hour/Bible Study:  Wednesdays, 9:40 AM
Our Coffee Hour Bible Study group meets on Wednesday mornings at 9:40 AM during the school year.  This is a great time for retirees and people of all ages.  Many faithfully attend and everyone is always welcome.  We begin with refreshments; sing a few songs; and then, using the Chapel Prayer Sheet, we cover every prayer request and take additional requests.  We finish the hour with an in depth Bible study.  This Spring we are continuing our study of the book of John.

Growth Groups:  Various locations and times
This Spring we have five Growth Groups that meet in various locations on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.  Growth Groups provide an opportunity to get to know others from the Chapel and also to grow in the Lord.  The topics and discussion are designed to expand on the weekly Sunday morning Family Bible Hour message.  Growth Groups usually correspond to the school year calendar.


Service & Missions

NW Missionary Focus:  2nd Saturday of every month
NW Missionary Focus is part of our missionary outreach.  Each month we learn about what is happening on the mission field, abroad and locally, and then we pray for our various missionaries.  For more information, please visit their website at:  http://nwmissionaryfocus.weebly.comAt each meeting one or two missionaries serve as featured speakers.  They share about what the Lord is doing in the country in which they are serving and always have exciting and fascinating news to share about their work.  NW Missionary Focus meets on the 2nd Saturday of every month and rotates among several different churches, including DMGC.

The Des Moines Food Bank
The Des Moines Food Bank is currently housed in the Des Moines United Methodist Church located at 22225 9th Avenue South.  The Food Bank serves a large number of people, and there are many ways you can volunteer.  Des Moines Gospel Chapel gives both financially and through personnel.

Library
The DMGC Library serves both children and adults (just off the main lobby). The hundreds of books, freely available to all, cover a broad range of interests, fiction and non-fiction, commentaries and topical titles.
