COVID-19 Information

How Simple Church in West Des Moines is responding in this crisis.

Stability in unstable times.

The COVID-19 pandemic has touched every individual in our church and our community. It might look like small daily changes or it may have looked like an overhaul of their daily life.


Many have been temporarily laid-off, children have been displaced from their schools and childcare facilities, gyms, movie theaters, and other public places have closed their doors. Social distancing is the new normal and isolation and quarantines common. The implications physically, economically, relationally, and spiritually are far-reaching.


But God is Great and He never changes. No matter how much the world around us is changing, He never does. We can look to Him with confidence, hope, and blessed assurance.

For such a time as this.

This is a time for churches all over the globe to ban together and lift high the name of Jesus. More than ever people need the peace that surpasses all understanding, the firm foundation, and the eternal hope of Jesus Christ.


Our physical doors may be closed, but we as a church are more active than ever before. Digital revival is here.

Online Serivces

Services, including worship and table discussion, will be held online at simple.online.church.


Services will be held Sundays at 10:00am and 8:00pm. The message will be available on Monday evening for those who missed the service. Messages will be posted and shared through the Simple Church YouTube Page.

Online Life Groups

All Life Groups will be moving to online platforms such as Google Hangouts, Zoom, or another platform. Group Leaders will decide the best platform for their group and help provide information to their members.


If you are not in a group or would like to start an online group, we encourage you to take this opportunity to be a part of a Jesus-centered community.

Staying Connected

We were created for community. God did not make us to be alone and we cannot survive or thrive in isolation. Praise be to God for technology! Now, more than any other time in human history, we are able to be in community without being in physical proximity to each other.
