  • August Mission of the Month

    Habitat for Humanity of Greater Des Moines

    In August, we will be focusing on a well-known organization that we partner with every year: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Des Moines. We are collecting monetary donations for the Ankeny Wall Build this fall so that a family will have their very own home for shelter. This build is sponsored by the Ankeny Circle of Faith members and as a part of it, Ankeny First is hoping to donate $5,000 for the build. It will take place on October 27 at the CLC - watch for more details soon about getting involved. Find a mission of the month envelope for your donation at the Welcome Center or simply write "August Mission of the Month" on your check memo.
