Our Guidance

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone should:

Wear a Mask

Wear a face covering

Wash your hands

Maintain social distancing


In order to move back inside for worship, we are taking the following precautions.

Directions & Precautions

  • We will meet inside GV’s Student Center, Speed Lyceum: 2811 E 14th St., Des Moines, IA 50316
  • The Student Center is new, the ventilation system recycles and cleans the air.
  • Mask and social distancing is required. If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one.
  • We will have two thirty minute worship services.


Join us every Sunday at 10:30 AM on YouTube @LutherMemorialChurch.

Be Fully Present

You’ll face a lot of digital distractions while service is going on. Choose to stay committed and engaged. (don’t worry, all those notifications will still be there when service is over)

Like, Share & Comment

One of the great benefits of online church is that we can have more interaction.  So ask questions and smash those reaction buttons.  Share the service on your social feeds, and invite your friend to watch with you.

Worship, Don’t Just Watch

Be intentional and make this a spiritual time, sing, pray, give, and read the Bible along with us.  Most importantly, listen for God’s voice and respond in faith through action!

Drive-Thru Communion

All are Welcome!

Every Sunday

As an alternative, at 11:15 AM, Pastor Russ will serve communion in front of the Student Center. Please, remain in your car to receive the sacrament.
