Hope and HealingSupport for Life's Struggles
We all have periods where we need a little extra help to get by. That’s why we have Hope and Healing every Tuesday night.
As Ecclesiastes 3 says, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens… a time to weep and a time to laugh.” We know that seasons of crying, grieving, and sorrow are a part of life’s natural order, and we want to help you turn those seasons into ones of overcoming, joy, and a hope for the future. Hope and Healing is a night dedicated to finding all the puzzle pieces of life and putting them back together.
