Mission: The Bereavement Ministry is a ministry of consolation to offer God’s healing love through emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual comfort.

What do we do: Through each other, this ministry offers strength, compassion, peace and love manifesting the glory of God within us. This Ministry is a source of blessing as we reach out to our brothers & sisters experiencing a loss. Losses come in a variety of ways including death, divorce, the loss of a job, and moving because of flood, fire or job transfer. The most important thing is to talk about it, so you can heal and prepare for future life challenges.

Membership: All are welcome, regardless of faith, age or culture. Experienced grief counselors are especially welcome, and training is available.

Meetings: We meet twice a month on Mondays from 7pm to 8:30pm in the St. Barnabas Meeting Room.
