Care Ministry

Prayer + Visitation Requests

Need prayer? Or do you want someone on our team to visit a loved one in the hospital, their home or a facility (rehabilitation, hospice, assisted living, etc)? Please use the forms below to let us know.

Financial + Practical Support

We consider helping individuals in financial crisis who are current mission partners or who have been attending Hope for at least three months, with rent, gas, water or electric bills. Approval is not guaranteed.

Applications are available to regular Hope attendees at our Raleigh and Apex campus offices, Mon.- Fri., 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Documentation of money owed must be provided with application. Please allow 7-10 days for your application to be processed.

We also work with local mechanics who offer their labor at discounted rates to fix vehicles for single parents and the elderly. Often we can’t cover the cost of the whole repair, but with the help of the discounted labor and financial assistance, our goal is to make the repair as affordable as possible. Fill out our Car Repair Request Form.

You can reach us at Hope’s financial hotline by calling 919-532-8405.

Encouragement and Counseling

Is life hard? Need someone to talk to? As a church, we want to make sure people feel known, loved and supported. Our Care Ministry Staff is available for confidential appointments to listen, offer Bible-based support and encouragement and recommend next steps. Call the church offices to set up an appointment or email our care staff.

Additionally, we partner with licensed Christian counselors for situations in need of next-level assistance. To receive a counselor recommendation contact us.

Support Groups

We were all made for community, but in times of struggle or pain, it can be especially important to remember you are not alone! At Hope, we offer support groups for seasons of life where it can be helpful to be around people who “get you” and who are walking a similar road. These support groups are an opportunity to have a safe place to share authentically and to be encouraged.

Below is a list of our current support groups:

  • Recovery Support Groups Whether you are in a current struggle, have found freedom from something that had a hold on you, or just need some accountability, these groups are a safe place to shed light on the dark areas that we all have in our lives. We will bring Biblical principles to bear their weight on the issues we have, and celebrate together as we watch Jesus transform us the only way that actually works—from the inside out.
  • Widows Support Groups Losing a spouse is a significant loss that can turn life upside down. On top of experiencing grief, life adjustments are required which can prove to be very challenging. These groups aim to provide spiritual and practical encouragement to help.

Unhindered Appointments

What is hindering you from being all that God called you to be?

Whether fear, shame, worry, sinful patterns or worldly distractions, God has a plan to clear the path so that you can “run the race” unhindered!

Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” [Heb.12:1]

Using God’s word and the power of prayer, trained volunteers will help you identify every hindrance and get back on course with Christ.

Sign up for an appointment with two team members in a safe and private setting.


The death of someone you love is very challenging. Planning a funeral or memorial service to honor, remember, and celebrate loved ones can feel overwhelming. Let Hope’s Care Ministry staff help you during this difficult time. We can help you plan your loved one’s memorial or funeral—and can lead your service, whether it’s held at Hope (depending on availability) or elsewhere.

Contact us or call the church office with questions.
