Sunday morning Field Trip to Reconciler's Worship Center
It's time for Zion to go and visit our brothers and sisters at Reconciler's and their pastor, Rev. Billy Young. Our next visit is planned for Sunday, April 7th. Service will be at 11:00 AM. Reconciler's is located at 920 31st Street, Des Moines; just north of I235 on the west side of the street. Plan to park on the street. If you need a ride, please contact Pastor John. Please consider coming and worshipping together. Reconciler's is a predominately African-American church and racial reconciliation begins by showing up.
