Pastoral Care Programs & Services \ Bereavement

During the year, bereavement support groups are formed as needed. A Bereavement Group is a safe, caring, non-judgmental, and confidential group. The group is a time to learn and to support one another through the journey of grief, by sharing thoughts, feelings, and experiences about each other’s loss. All that is shared stays in the group. The Pastoral Care Minister is also familiar with bereavement resources outside the church, and if there is no group active at the church, she may recommend an appropriate resource in the area. Some people feel more comfortable in a group that is not at their home church, while others prefer only to be part of a group of people they know.
