September 22-November 17
This study is designed for people who have a current or past relationship with a person who has a life-controlling problem.  The manual for this group will encourage participants to focus on Christ rather than the behavior of their loved one.  In an attempt to ‘help’ their loved one might there be some enabling taking place?  This group will go to the Bible for direction on how to take care of yourself by focusing on Christ.

Prayer

Prayer Ministry Team
 
Prayer is one of the most vital tools we have as believers. It is what Christian people do to lift each other up and follow the path that Jesus walked.
Hope’s Prayer Ministry Team is devoted to prayer. They receive prayer requests by email or regular mail twice a week and they thoughtfully pray and lift up the concerns of our church family to God.
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.

Tuesday, September 24  l  6:30-7:30pm  l  North Campus Library
Remembering each other in prayer is one of the greatest privileges in ministry. The Monthly Prayer time is an opportunity to lift up the concerns in our lives and the life of our church.

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.
 

HOSPITALIZED?

Please let us know by calling the Church Office at 701.235.6629 or emailing hopecare@fargohope.org. Our pastors want to visit and provide care. Hospitals will not notify us when you are admitted.
