Prayer

Prayer Ministry Team

Please consider joining us in prayer by letting us know you’d like to be a Prayer Warrior. Contact Barb by emailing hopecare@fargohope.org or prayer@fargohope.org or simply call 701.235.6629.

Meals That Heal
 
Food is one way to share Christs love and our care for one another. Jesus uses food to heal and bring a word of promise to His church in the Lord’s Supper. Not only is the love of God shared in the Lord’s Supper, but whenever we care for one another. We need volunteers to prepare and deliver meals to those struggling with serious life challenges. Contact Barb at hopecare@fargohope.org or call 701.235.6629 for more information about how to get involved.

Visitation Ministry

 
The book of Acts tells us that it is the task of all Christians to care for one another, and we do just that in many and various ways through HopeCare. We invite you to share your time, talent, energy and God-given gifts to engage in our Visitation Ministry. A few short hours a month in conversation and prayer can make a tremendous difference to those who you visit. It will provide hope and strength, people know they are not alone, and that God and His people are a very present help in time of need. Your visit will encourage all people to know the love of Jesus Christ. For more information or to become a Visitation Minister contact Barb at hopecare@fargohope.org or call 701.235.6629.
