Hope Ministry

The Vale wants to help the hurting by offering healing through Bible-based support and encouragement groups that meet on campus on Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 7:45 PM. Each group below is designed to meet a specific need but all groups offer Biblical instructions and loving support because each participant is significant because each is loved by God; each created in His likeness and image. Just know that we care! See the class listings below.
