From the very beginning, Wakonda Christian Church aims to take a different approach in reaching out and helping people along their faith journey. From a small group of faithful followers in 1952 wanting to start a Disciples of Christ church on the south side of Des Moines, Wakonda Christian Church has its founding forged in neighborly partnerships. Working with local businesses, and our surrounding neighborhood, our church worked with the Des Moines Civil Rights movement to end blockbusting and live out our belief that All are Welcome, not only in our church, but our neighborhood, as well.
We have grown since our founding and continue to find ways to expand our partnership with God’s world beyond simply our neighborhood, but also with our nation and world. We look forward to welcoming you and partnering together to create the world God envisions.
