WELCOME TO OUR RECOVERY & SUPPORT MINISTRIES

Getting through life can sometimes be a struggle. It's even worse if you're trying to go it alone. Jesus never promised it would be easy, but He did promise that He would always be with us (Matthew 28:20). He accomplishes this, in part, through our relationships and support of each other.

If you're struggling in life or if you've gone through hardship, let us come alongside and share with you the comfort, care, support and understanding that comes from the Lord. Join others who have gone through similar experiences in life and gain strength.

You'll also find people who have been through the same things you have. Together you can share your struggles, strengths, hurts and hopes, and overcome through community, God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit. In addition to having two licensed counselors on staff, we offer faith-based classes listed below. Scholarships are available for all classes. Please don't let the cost prohibit you from attending. Contact the class leader for more information on scholarships. 

For more information about Recovery Ministries and Life Groups please contact Adam Hieb at ahieb@vrl.church.

Unraveled

Many women who struggle with love, sex, porn, and relationship addictions are unable to sustain healthy relationships with romantic partners, family members, and friends. We desperately want to feel loved and accepted, but are continually disappointed by relationships. The pain and shame of our unwanted sexual behaviors leads us to a place we never intended.

Starting Over 2022

With powerful stories and practical applications, Starting Over, is designed to equip you to make decisions that will help you start over successfully.
