Meets Every Tuesday, 7-8:30pm

Many people within our church and our community are suffering with a mental health challenge. As many as 1 in 4 adults will be diagnosed with depression during their lifetime, a staggering statistic. This number does not include their loved ones, who are likewise challenged with how to help. Those affected with a mental health challenge have many fears: what if someone finds out, shame, failure, inability to function and the list goes on. Their loved ones wonder how can they can help, what should we do, why are they acting this way? Dealing with these challenges can easily lead them to lose hope. But we know that “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind” 2 Timothy 1:7.

We are here to provide support to those struggling with mental health challenges in their life. Our Fresh Hope group is open to all (not just church members) and is based upon Christian principles.  Our meetings begin by reviewing the 6 tenets of the Fresh Hope program and then introductions. These brief introductions include a report on how full our “hope tank” is that day. We often hear that those attending find their hope tank is fuller after our meetings! We cover a variety of topics each week and then break into smaller groups for discussion. Topics have included recovery, phases to living well, image and stigma, working through your past, preventing relapse and others. Our focus is to encourage positive ways to overcome your mental health challenge.

It has been a blessing to be a part of this ministry and to see the progress people are making in their lives. We all learn from each other and grow each week. We would encourage all who are struggling with an emotional or mental health challenge to attend our meetings, Tuesdays from 7-8:30pm in room 132. There are other Fresh Hope resources available, including: Facebook, Fresh Hope for Mental Health, online meetings at, and their website at (this site has a great blog as well). We also have Fresh Hope workbooks available. If you are in need of some Fresh Hope for your life, please come and join us. We will help to fill your “hope tank”.

Ten-Week Sessions
Meets Periodically Throughout the Year

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

Video seminar with experts

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus

After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection

During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Ten-Week Sessions
Meets Once or Twice a Year

Freedom is about hope and generosity. In the midst of so much economic uncertainty, we believe our church can offer freedom for those trapped by the burden of debt, hope for those who feel hopeless, and the ability to unleash a spirit of generosity to help the hurting in our church, community and world.

Because we think finances can be a spiritual stronghold and a significant challenge for a lot of people, we as the church have a responsibility to address it head on, unapologetically, and with confidence in God’s direction and authority over this area in our lives.

FPU is a 10-week, life-changing program that empowers and teaches you to make the right money decisions to achieve your financial goals and God’s plan for your life. The course includes practical lessons on eliminating debt, building wealth, giving like never before, and much, much more!
