How to find and live a life of meaning and purpose will be discussed at Lifetree Café at 10 a.m., Sunday, May 25, and at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 29, at the West Des Moines United Methodist Church, 720 Grand Avenue, West Des Moines, IA 50265.

The program, titled “Living a Rich Life: Finding Meaning and Purpose,” features the filmed story of Christine Garde, who left an influential political position to launch a gang diversion program by moving into an urban gang-infested neighborhood.

“I want to look back at my life and know that I made a significant difference in the world,” says Garde, who believes she’s not alone in her desire. “People want their lives to matter.”

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

To get to the West Des Moines United Methodist Church, located in the western part of the Des Moines area, take Interstate-235 to the 8th Street/73rd Street exit. Go south on 8th Street to Grand Avenue. The West Des Moines United Methodist Church is on the southeast corner of 8th and Grand. Parking is available in the back of the building.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation on life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. For questions about Lifetree may be directed to Paige Chapman at 515-279-0826 or info@lifetreecafe.com. More information is available at Lifetreecafe.com.
