We offer a free monthly Support Group with Dinner. Our meetings are one Tuesday each month from 6:30 pm to 8 pm in Fellowship Hall. Hope for the Journey is an uplifting, Christ centered ministry.

Feedback

“Thank you again for last night (Support Group). What an amazing group or warm, friendly folks. You made me feel so welcome! This is such a valuable ministry and is much needed as we all make this journey together.” 

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity of this group and all of the support I have received.” She took ministry gifts (treatment prayer blanket, scripture box, & treatment tote) with her when she went out of state for treatment. “I can’t wait to get back home and meet everyone at Support Group!” 

“I cannot explain how happy I was yesterday when I saw your card with all of the supportive words and scripture. It helped me to be more positive. Your great support encourages me to fight and beat this cancer so that I can get back to a normal life soon.”
