Open House – Celebrating 25 Years!

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 11 AM – 2 PM

Hope Family Ministries will be 25 years old May 12, 2020! We are celebrating early due to busy schedules in May. It has been a challenging adventure of faith! God has gone before and provided both people and provisions, in His time and way. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9) While many things have changed over the years our objectives haven’t.

Provide: a safe environment; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually; caring counselors who are relationally seasoned; counselors who are learning and growing; wisdom/knowledge/discernment about clients’ belief systems and God’s promises; noncritical, honest feedback (speak truth in love); encouragement without being critical of others; empathy without excusing consequences of choices; perspective, biblically, in evaluating openness to truth God; truth regarding impact of being forgiven by God, forgiving oneself and forgiving others; hope by exploring faith, scripture and best options still available; direction by helping discern and prepare for next decision and step of faith toward healing; probable timeline in processing impact (loss, grief, disappointment, challenges); our services on a donation basis with no questions about income or sliding scale; structure in equipping client to no longer need counseling.

Please pray for God’s wisdom and favor in our Home Town Hope Campaign and in our ongoing production of resources (blogs, books and videos). Our desire is to offer God’s grace, truth and hope through practical tools to facilitate reconciliation and restoration in relationships. (Romans 15:13) Blessings!
