Bethel Mission: Evening Meal

The Ridge serves meals at Hope Ministries’ Bethel Mission on the fourth Friday of every month. Bethel Mission is an emergency shelter for men, located at 1310 6th Ave. Des Moines.

We have two opportunities to help with this ministry:

  1. Prepare meals. You will be assigned to purchase some of the ingredients and then we will gather to prepare the meals together. If you are interested in helping prepare the meal, please contact Mary Kohlsdorf at
  2. Serve meals at Bethel Mission. Register Here >

Hope Ministries rescues those who are homeless, hungry, abused or addicted, providing opportunities for hope, recovery and restoration through the love of Jesus Christ. If you have any questions about serving at Bethel Mission, contact Ray Lorenz at 515-371-2151 or visit

In 2018, The Ridge provided ALL the milk ALL year long at Bethel Mission. That’s over 2,000 gallons!
