John 16:33

How Can We Support You?

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 (NLT)

Hope Grimes wants to support you in the sorrows, grievances or sicknesses that you or a loved one might be facing. We offer support groups, opportunities to receive prayer, hospital visits and funeral services for your loved ones. We encourage you to find what you need and what works best for you.

We believe in the power of prayer and inviting the Lord into our joys and our sorrows. If you need prayer, please leave your request on the Prayer Wall for your church family to pray over. While on the Prayer Wall, you can also pray for the requests of others that have been posted.
