Visitation Ministry

Hope 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.

Stephen Ministry

Someone to listen…

Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another. Through one-to-one caring relationships we minister to those who are experiencing; loss of a loved one, loneliness, discouragement, job crisis, spiritual crisis, birth, adoption, miscarriage, infertility, separation, divorce, recovery after an accident or disaster, terminal illness, incarceration. A Stephen Minister is someone who will be there for you to talk to for about an hour each week, however they are not a replacement for a professional counselor. A Stephen Minister is someone who will “be there” for their care receiver. 
 

Prayer

Prayer 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. Consider joining us in prayer. Let us know if you’d like to be a Prayer Warrior.
