This ministry is:

  • a place of refuge, support, and friendship
  • lay led
  • hope-filled
  • respectful
  • confidential
  • educational
  • prayerful

H.E.L.P. is not:Help_comments2

  • a counseling service
  • therapy
  • a self-help plan

This ministry is modeled after H.E.L.P. of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in California. Their faith based ministry, born out of pain and need, has served the church and community since 1999. To view John Ortberg’s video about H.E.L.P.’s origins and blessings at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church (now Menlo Church), go to Menlo’s H.E.L.P. Ministry page.

…people who wrestle with those struggles openly are some of the most courageous people I know.
