Hope Sports

Faith and Sports 

Hope Sports is a Lutheran Church of Hope West Des Moines program that equips, empowers and encourages athletes and coaches to deepen their faith and grow in skills and sportsmanship. We do this by providing opportunities for athletes (ages 4 and up), parents, coaches and fans to develop their knowledge in sports and athletic skills in a Christ-centered environment.
