At Ankeny UCC, we are a welcoming church family exploring progressive Christian theology, caring within and serving beyond. This means we are an intergenerational church, where in worship you may see 90 year-olds leading worship along with 8 year-olds. We are a questioning church, searching for different ways the Bible and God have spoken to different people at different times. We are a serving church, finding new ways to reach out into the Ankeny community and beyond. We are an Open and Affirming church in the United Church of Christ, embracing all of God’s beloved children.

But most of all, we are a welcoming church, inviting and celebrating all people who are searching for reconciliation, hope, joy, or love.

Every Sunday, we gather in-person and on YouTube online at 10:30 to worship God in community, and we invite you to join us! Children are always invited to come as they are in our worship, but we also have a staffed nursery should you need it. During the school year, our youth gather for Christian Education at 9:30, and our adults gather as they are moved throughout the year for book and Bible studies.

Together, in worship and in study, in care and in service, we listen and hear God’s Still-Speaking voice. Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are invited to come walk with us.
