Grow within an authentic community. House of Hope offers a wide variety of class options to meet diverse interests and needs.

“At the start of the retreat, I was feeling pretty weighed down by life’s responsibilities. By the end, I felt lighter because I know it’s not all up to me.”


Upcoming classes include:

  • Emotionally Healthy Woman : Core Class. The journey to emotionally health begins by quitting. Some of the things that this class will encourage you to quit are: being afraid of what others think, lying, denying anger and sadness, and living someone else’s life. When you begin to quit the things that are damaging to your soul, you are freed to choose other ways of being and relating to others that are rooted in love and lead to life. Sundays, starting October 27th from 5:00-6:30 pm. Cost of class is $25.
  • The Art Of The Heart. Tap into the little person inside and allow color and form to be FUN to tell the stories of your life through visual representation. This class works well in conjunction with the Ultimate Journey for those who have taken UJ, however not required. Join Melissa Collins as she encourages expression, connection and healing through art and conversation. Mondays, starting Nov. 18th. 7-8:30 pm. Cost is $40. Art supplies included.
