50+ Ministry

Be Inspired, Grow in Faith and Build Community

The 50+ Ministry offers engaging activities to fulfill social, vocational, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and relational needs of those older than 50. Hope is blessed to have this vibrant ministry that includes monthly luncheons with speakers, music matinees, special events, service opportunities, small group gatherings, and travel options. 
Enjoy monthly breakfast at the Machine Shed Restaurant, monthly game days where you can bring your favorite games and snacks to share, field trips to the Des Moines Playhouse, transportation to concerts and more, all so you can connect with fellow Hopesters and be inspired to grow in your faith and build community.
