    History of Calvary Reformed Church [in this church building from 1987 - ?] was written by Phyllis PETERSON (copied from The History of Warren County, Iowa, compiled by the Warren County Genealogical Society, Curtis Media Corp., Dallas, Texas, 1987, p.191)

    In February of 1965 land was purchased to build Calvary Reformed Church in Greenfield Plaza from John Eilers, Inc. In April of 1966 worship services began in the newly built parsonage. Ground breaking for the church building began in November 1966, with the building being dedicated in October 1967. There have been two other congregations who briefly shared the building: the New Hope Baptist, which worshiped 1983 to 1984 in our facilities and also Church of Compassion from 1984 to 1986. Calvary Reformed Church is located at 8383 Ridgeview Drive, Des Moines, Iowa.
