I’m New

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.
