FUNERALS

Hope’s Care team would love to walk alongside you as you make plans to celebrate the life of your loved one. Please know that we continue to monitor and abide by CDC guidelines and recommendations in regards to the number of people permitted to physically attend a funeral at Hope. In order to provide a safe and healthy environment, currently, masks are required for all who enter a Hope building. This remains a fluid situation and we appreciate your understanding. To begin the process of planning your loved one’s service, or for questions on current policies in regards to COVID-19, please call 515-222-1520.

At Hope, we offer memorial, celebration of life and funeral services to families during their time of grief, and we view it as an honor to be able to do so. We assist families by offering support before, during and after the planning process, as well as comfort to family and friends through God’s promise of eternal life in heaven.

To begin the process of planning your loved one’s service, please call 515-964-5586.  


Memory Grove Memory Grove

“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.” – Philippians 1:3

Give a gift of trees, memorialize a loved one, celebrate a milestone or donate a tree simply because you cherish nature.

Participate in the Memory Grove surrounding the pond! Planting a tree is a unique way to honor and remember your friends and family, while also providing a gift so others can enjoy the shade and beauty a living tree provides. A memorial tree may also be planted as a unique gift for events such as birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings, new births, anniversaries, honoring a service member or any other special occasion. Memorial bricks are also available for purchase, and will be placed around the pond as landscaping is finished (please note: bricks will not be placed by specific trees donated, rather they will be dispersed throughout the Memory Grove).

Donations may be made toward the Memory Grove in any amount:

  • Memorial bricks will be placed in the grove for donations of $100 or more
  • Trees will be planted with every $300 that is raised

Please call the church office at 964-5586 to place a tree or memory brick order.
