6:2 Ministry 

One of the beautiful things about being a Christian is that you are not alone. God intentionally
connects you with other believers and one of the reasons is so we can strengthen and encourage each other. One of the ways we do this is by bearing each other’s burdens. We are instructed to do this as the rest of verse 2 says: “and so fulfill the law of Christ.” God desires of us and He yearns for us to be there for others.

Throughout our lives we have trials in our lives that impact us in different and sometimes profound ways. We may find ourselves overwhelmed with distress or despair and have a need to unburden ourselves. Ultimately Christ is the One who unburdens us and gives us His peace.
As fellow Christians, we are called to help those in need. To listen, to pray, to support them, and show them the love of Christ. That is Hope’s 6:2 Ministry. Tim, Carla, Stacey, and Cathy are here to do just that between Sunday services. If you would like another time to visit, one of us will call you.

Lastly, we want you to know that this ministry does not replace the care you would receive from our Pastor.

Do you need a burden carried? Fill out one of the 6:2 Ministry cards located on the Literature Tables at the back of the Sanctuary and give it to Pastor or drop it in the offering basket.

Walking with you in Christ, Tim, Carla, Stacey, and Cathy.

Martha Ministry 

Did you know Hope has a Martha Ministry? It is an opportunity to serve members of Hope who may need help with meals for a few days after being hospitalized or just want or need a home-cooked meal once in a while. Hope members volunteer to make a meal and deliver it to the home. Are you interested in preparing a meal? Have you been released from the hospital? 

Do you need help with meals? Please contact Katherine Enderle at 608-343-1047 (call or text) or k.enderle@yahoo.com.
