Joppa Homeless Outreach
Downtown Disciples Team Leaders EC and Ken have been working with Joppa Outreach to serve our neighbors in need right here in Des Moines. Now, you have the opportunity to join them and other Downtown Disciples as we serve the homeless population in our city. Every fourth Sunday of the month, we'll be taking part in Joppa's outreach efforts to homeless people living in tents around Des Moines. This is a relational continuous ministry that requires a high level of commitment, reliability, and training. Sign up to volunteer by emailing [masked] RSVP's are required and limited space is available.

What we're about

Welcome to Downtown Disciples, a progressive faith community, where you will be welcomed, affirmed, loved, inspired, and challenged. We are an LGBTQ+affirming #BlackLivesMatter proclaiming community doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly together by following the way of Jesus and honoring many spiritual paths. We are making a positive impact in downtown Des Moines. We gather for intelligent spiritual discussions, book studies, progressive worship and social gatherings. We embrace science, diversity, social justice, technology and spiritual practices. We volunteer at shelters, serve the hungry, work for peace, speak truth to power, protest, rally, but refuse to judge, condemn, or exclude.
