Eggs, Eggs Everywhere
2018 Volunteer Roles

At Gateway our vision is to become a part of the fabric of the culture of Des Moines and to join God in the renewal of the city. We can do that through ministry to the homeless, the widow and the orphan, the refugee and the outcasts... and we can do that by organizing a massive, free Easter Egg Hunt in the heart of our city! 

This Spring, in an effort to bring the downtown community together and share the good news of Easter we are putting on our 8th annual Eggs Eggs Everywhere event! This one-of-a-kind Easter Egg Hunt is located in the heart of our city and open to everyone in the neighborhood.
