Recovery & Healing

We are all just beggars showing other beggars where we found bread.

We deeply believe that all of us have hurts, wounds, and weaknesses Jesus wants to tend to. We also believe that we, the church, are put here to help one another experience His love through our presence and friendship. So we want to let you know about available groups and resources to support healing and recovery.

This page lists some of those. Many are hosted by Hope or Hopesters; others are community resources we know of.  If you have a need or question you don’t find addressed here, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Our Recovery Pastor, Eric Hauck, will keep all messages confidential (the only exception to the promise of confidentiality: If it seems you may be in danger of harming yourself or someone else, we may contact professionals who can help). Please use the form below to reach out to Pastor Eric.

Men's Retreat — August 2022

Calling men to begin "breaking the darkness" in our lives and in our world by walking and living in authentic brotherhood. The purpose of our retreat is to help men dare closer to Jesus and find freedom in our lives by learning to be ruggedly honest and supporting one another as broken brothers in confidential spaces. The retreat will feature Nate Larkin, nationally known speaker, author or "Samson and the Pirate Monks," and founder of the International Samson Society.
