GriefShare – GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. Two 13-week GriefShare sessions are offered each year. April 16, 2018, marks the first.

Community Table – This thrice-monthly dinner is held the second, third and fourth Thursdays of each month from 5:30 – 6:45 pm. Dinner is provided by churches of the Dickinson County Ministerial Association in partnership with Upper Des Moines Opportunity and the Bedell Family YMCA. CT is a point of connection for anyone in the community who would enjoy a no-cost, nutritious meal. Though administered by churches, there are no religious strings attached. The purpose is to connect the lonely and feed the hungry, offering a gift of love to all who come. Community Table is located on the OBCM campus Community Center at 45 S. Highway 71 in Arnolds Park the second and fourth Thursday of each month and at the Bedell Family YMCA at 1900 41st St in Spirit Lake the third Thursday monthly.
