Grief Ministry

Grief Ministry with Compassionate Care

Mission Statement

Our ministry is dedicated to be present for those with grieving hearts. To provide education, support, compassion and encouragement as they transition from grief and mourning to rebuilding and enjoying a full new life.

Grief is the emotional side — internal thoughts and feelings of our loss.
Mourning is the outward expression of grief we share with others.

Hurting from the pain of grief? There is a solution.
