First Unitarian Church of Des Moines is in the midst of a two-year Interim Ministry. Two separate processes will be taking place over the next year: Transition Ministry, and a Settled Minister Search.  We are excited by the possibilities before us as we examine our situation, reaffirm our values and explore the opportunities to grow our commitment and community.
