Ray of Hope Ministry


“God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble” –Psalm 46:1 (NKJV)

Mission:
The Ray of Hope Ministry seeks to share the insights of God’s Word on the impact of family violence with the church congregation and the community at large due to the lack of awareness and resources. We understand that survivors need specialized assistance and support when confronted with issues related to domestic violence. This ministry strives to connect those in need to the invaluable resources which can offer help and healing, with hopes that individuals will see and experience God’s love from our ministry, and ultimately want to have a deeper relationship with Him. This ministry meets the 2nd Saturday of each month.

Indicators of Violence or Abuse
Instances of violence or abuse can vary and may be repeated. Below are a few indicators that could suggest that you are in a cycle of abuse, which has three phases:  
 
•         Calm phase – (“I love you,” or “It won’t happen again”)
•         Tension Building Phase – (Walking around on eggshells)
•         Crisis Phase – (The blow up, threats or destruction)
 
For more information in understanding the overall pattern of abusive and violent behaviors, please review the link below to the “Power and Control Wheel”:
