“LIVING WELL” SERIES
The global COVID19 pandemic has had far-reaching effects into many areas of our lives including our mental health. The CARE ministries of Hope City Church are providing webinars and podcasts to help. For additional resources and links, also check out our Hope City CARE Resource Page.
MOVING INTO WHOLENESS
We all desire to move forward as we journey with God. In CARE our goal is to help you identify and take your next step towards wholeness and fullness of life. These steps include RESPONDING to immediate needs, HEALING from the pain of life’s circumstances, and GROWING into stable and fervent disciples of Christ.
Helping Hands assists those who are in crisis with guidance, food and clothing. Requests are handled individually and confidentially. Contact the main office for more information.

Grief Share is a support group that meets virtually weekly. This program features biblical concepts for healing from your grief- specifically after the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend. You are welcome to begin attending this group at any point. Each session is self contained, so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in our 13 week cycle. First session starts: Thursday September 24th. To learn more about this program or to register, click here.
In Freedom Session we see God heal the pain of the past. In the follow-up Authentic Living we gain the tools needed to deal with current/future pain and conflict. Cost is $50 if taken as a stand-alone course from Freedom Session. To register, click here. To learn more about Authentic Living & Freedom Session, click here.
