Recovery & SUPPORT

We're all just beggars showing other beggars where we found bread.

Here at hope, we're aware that all of us - at some level - need healing and recovery.  That we each carry hurts, wounds, and weaknesses that Jesus wants to tend to. Our goals in Hope Recovery Ministries are to create safe places for people to share their deepest pain, and to help people find healing in Jesus through a confidential and understanding community.  

We were not created to walk alone in life, and if you're looking for support or need help, please consider joining one of the groups listed below that might help you on your journey. You are not alone and your story matters!

Below the groups is a list of resources available at Hope or in the community. 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).

For more information, please contact Pastor Eric.
