Pursuing God's Heart for our city
A journey to serve and love the people of Greater Des Moines
Love You Des Moines is an expression of the commitment that Valley Church has to serve and love the people of greater Des Moines. The people of Valley Church launched this journey in 2009 and it remains a very important value in our church family.
This commitment springs out of the heart of God who told us:
“Seek the peace and prosperity of the city ... Pray to the LORD for it.”
Jesus himself modeled a heart of compassion in his ministry as he loved the poor, the outcasts, the marginalized, those with disabilities, the sick, the needy, the confused, the lost, the wayward. The Scripture records:
When Jesus saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." (Matt 9:36-38)
We want to be the heart, the hands, the feet of Jesus to the people of greater Des Moines. We want to reach out practically with acts on kindness and service to meet the real needs of our community.
