Welcome! We are so glad you're here. This group is sponsored by and is a part of Lutheran Church of Hope. Our goal is to help you build friendships with other moms, offer support to each other and have some fun! This group can be whatever we want to make it - including events both with and without our children. Our group is entirely volunteer-led by the members in the group. Our success is dependent on moms like you, who want to be an active part of a fun group of Christian moms. We ask that all members host a playdate sometime during the year. Most of the activities will be focused on the west side of Des Moines since the majority of our members attend the West Des Moines campus.
You have the option to participate in whatever activities work for you and your schedule. However, we do ask that you participate in some form at least once every 3 months. We have a playdate the first Friday of the month and a Mom’s Night Out dinner sometime during the 3rd week of the month. Many events will be held during the weekday, however moms who work outside the home or who work part-time are certainly welcome to attend or host activities that work with their schedule. Some examples... playdate at the church or someone's home, lunch out, "moms only" craft, sewing, scrapbooking, etc. night, or meet at local park, zoo, Science Center, etc..
We will also promote activities that are for moms, families and children that are offered at Hope, so it's a great way to get more connected with our church community. To protect the privacy of our members, all information beyond this main page is password protected.
Lastly, there is a $10 registration fee which covers our website fee, crafts and supplies for playdates and our annual family potluck. After requesting membership through the meetup site please use the following link to sign up through Hope’s website: http://www.navigatehope.org/ministry_listin...
