Journey to the Light: A Christmas Candlelight Drive-Thru Experience

Dec. 13-17, 5:30-9:30 pm
In the parking lot at Hope West Des Moines (925 Jordan Creek Pkwy, West Des Moines, Iowa)

Join us for an unforgettable journey to the light — a can’t-miss, one-of-a-kind Christmas drive-thru experience! As you embark on this spectacular journey through Hope’s parking lot, you’ll be invited to roll down your windows, turn up the heat, and enjoy the journey! From your car, you’ll experience the Christmas story in brand-new ways — dazzling light shows, beautiful Christmas music, a cast of hundreds of volunteers living out the story of the Messiah’s birth, and lots of fun surprises along the way. The entire event is free and all are welcome!

Food Collection

While on your journey, you’ll also have the opportunity to drop off nonperishable food items that will be given to local food pantries to help stock their shelves as we head into the winter season! Simply bring the items with you, and there will be a spot along the route where volunteers will be on-hand to collect them from your car, making it quick-and-easy to donate!

Hundreds of volunteers are needed for this event. Check out the volunteer opportunities here!
