Waukee Community Church was born in a diner. Two of our founding elders were meeting over lunch at the Drake Diner to plan for their Adult Bible Fellowship Class at Valley Church (West Des Moines, IA). Soon, they found themselves dreaming about a church plant in the growing western suburbs of Des Moines. They dreamed of a church where people embraced the mission of "being" the church. They dreamed of a place where people were genuinely involved in each other's lives--helping each other become more like Christ. That day, in a diner, these two guys grabbed hold of that vision.
As the dream expanded, the leaders of Valley Church embraced this plant and joyfully sent a group of 50 people to Waukee. On Palm Sunday of 2005, WCC launched her first public worship service at Prairieview School.
Over the years, many things have changed, but we have always stayed true to the mission of making followers of Jesus.
