West Des Moines United Methodist Church

Why a caring God would come to the aid of some but not all will be discussed at Lifetree Café at 10:00 a.m., Sunday, June 15, and 7 p.m., Thursday, June 19, at 7:00PM at Lifetree Café, held at the West Des Moines United Methodist Church, 720 Grand Avenue, West Des Moines, Iowa..

The program, titled “Does God Play Favorites? Why Would a Caring God Bless Some and Not Others?” features the filmed stories of people affected by a devastating fire.

Some residents describe how their house was “miraculously” spared, while others tell how their lives’ possessions were lost in the forest fire.

“After the smoke cleared, residents and firefighters remarked how the fire seemed to surround but stop before devouring some houses,” says Lifetree representative Craig Cable. “Disasters like this cause people to question things like divine intervention-or the lack of it.”

Admission to the 60-minute events are free. Snacks and beverages are available.

To get to the West Des Moines United Methodist Church, located in the western part of the Des Moines area, take Interstate-235 to the 8th Street/73rd Street exit (Exit 3). Go south on 8th Street to Grand Avenue. The church is on the southeast corner of 8th and Grand. Parking is available behind the church building.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation on life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. For more information about Lifetree Café, please contact Paige Chapman at 515-279-0826 or pchapman@wdmumc.org. More information is available at Lifetreecafe.com.
