Shalom’s Vision Statement
We are Shalom, a community being brought together by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
We invite everyone to cultivate a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ, celebrate in worship, care for and encourage each other, and communicate Christ to the world.
Presently Shalom has around 172 families with 650 people. It is a young, growing, and dynamic congregation. Over one-third of the congregation is High School age or younger. Eighty percent of the adult members have had some college or are college or post-college graduates. Many members come from Christian Reformed Churches in Northwest Iowa, Southwest Minnesota, and Central South Dakota. We also have a sizable number of people from non-CRC background.
Shalom is located on the corner of 49th Street and Southeastern Ave. The area is a newly developed single-family dwelling neighborhood, with a library, elementary school, park and swimming pool located in the immediate area.
The worship center, built in 1990, is a magnificent, hexagonal shaped facility that seats over 600 people and is furnished with state of the art audiovisual equipment. The finished basement includes a fireside room and classrooms. With a narthex between, a large fellowship hall extends off the worship center. Classrooms, nurseries, and a kitchen surround the fellowship hall.
