Welcome to Anchor Baptist Church!
We are located at 5510 Brook View Ave., Des Moines, IA.  You can expect to be warmly welcomed by our friendly Greeters who can answer your questions and show you where to go.

Our Sunday morning gatherings include reading, praying, singing, and preaching the Word of God. Communion is the first Sunday of every month. A time of informal fellowship follows our worship gathering (sometimes with treats!).  We also typically have a Bible Training Hour after our time of fellowship.

We praise the LORD for his steadfast love and faithfulness to us as a local church family.  We would love to meet you at one of our regular gatherings!

1) What about my kids?

Your little ones (birth - 2yo) can be cared for in our nursery or you are welcome to keep them with you.  Our nursery workers are certified through our Children and Student Ministries Protection Program "Because We Care."

We also have a Children's Church class for 3 - 5 year olds.  They begin in the auditorium with you and can be dismissed to their own classroom before the sermon for a Bible lesson, singing, prayer, and play.

2) What do I wear?

There are no expectations for dress other than modesty and respect.  Some wear suits and ties, some wear khakis and polos, some wear jeans and a t-shirt...some wear shorts year-round!

3) How can I get connected?

Show Up...Help Out...Invest In

Come and join our gatherings.  Our focus is on discipleship.  You can be connected 1-on-1 with another member.  You can become part of a Small Group (led by one of our Deacons).  You can join a Bible Study group or ministry activity.

Serving is a great way to be connected!
