Loving those with life-controlling issues
This group is designed for people to better understand how they can help a friend or family member who is trapped in a life-controlling problem, (alcoholism, drug addictions and codependency). Additionally, a person who is suffering the painful consequences of a loved one’s choices will find hope. The material will encourage participants to focus on Christ rather than the behavior of the loved one. The group members will go to the Bible for direction on how to take care of themselves and their loved ones.

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. 
Monthly Prayer Ministry
 
Date/Time: TBD
 
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. 
Questions? Contact Judy at jsiegle@fargohope.org or call 701.235.6629, x241
 

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.
