Saylorville Church exists to make more people more like Jesus. We are a vibrant, family-friendly, Gospel-centered church in Des Moines, Iowa. We would love to have you join us for one of our Sunday services, connect through our online resources or check out our latest teaching and preaching. We believe God gives His church a clear mandate in Scripture: to glorify Him by helping people become increasingly devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We want to see that take place at Saylorville Church, in our local community, in the Des Moines metro and all around the world.

What are your service times?
Sunday Morning: We have three services at 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am in the auditorium.
Sunday Nights: Sunday Nights at Saylorville runs during the school year at 5:00pm. During this time we have an adult class, Saylorville Students (6th-12th grade) and Shine Children’s Ministry (2 1/2 years – 5th grade). Nursery is also provided at this time for ages 0 – 2 1/2 years.
Wednesday Nights: On Wednesdays, during the school year, we have youth group downstairs for 6th-12th graders from 6:30-8:15pm and a prayer meeting open to all from 7:00-8:00pm.
What are your services like?
Our services have contemporary music and preaching directly from the Bible. Both the music and the message are the same in all Sunday morning services. Sunday evenings are totally different where we have adult classes, student and children’s ministries. Here is how we prepare a message for Sunday mornings:
How do I get to Saylorville?
We have 5 parking lots including parking near the edge of the building. Look for parking lot attendants and signs to find an open spot.
What should I wear?
You can wear whatever you like…anything from skirts and dresses to jeans and shirts, casual works just fine.
What is your music like?
At Saylorville our music is contemporary but our focus is on substance and truth over style and performance.
Do I need a Bible? What translation do you use?
Here at Saylorville, we preach from the Bible but you do not need to bring a Bible to attend. We preach from the English Standard Version (ESV).
What is available for my kids/teens?
Infant and Toddler (through 2 ½ years old): Nurseries are available for all Sunday morning and all Sunday evening activities.
2 ½ years through Kindergarten: Children’s Church is available during both Sunday morning services.
2 ½ years through 5th grade: Shine is our children’s ministry and meets in the Family Life Center Sunday evening during Sunday Nights at Saylorville.
6th-12th graders: Saylorville Students is our youth ministry. They meet from 6:30-8:00pm on Wednesday evenings (7:00-8:00pm in the summers) and on Sundays for Cell Groups during Sunday Nights at Saylorville.
How do I connect with others?
There are many ways to get connected with others at Saylorville. Free coffee and treats are served each Sunday between the morning services at the Coffee Cove. This is a great place to meet new people. Cell Groups are groups of people that meet weekly in homes to study the Bible, pray and encourage one another.
