It doesn't matter if your loss is recent or sometime in the past. We offer prayers, materials regarding the grieving process and a caring community to help you.  Throughout the year we hold Support Group Sessions with opportunities for listening, sharing, projects, and prayer among the participants.  We are also happy to make home visits to those who are grieving.  Home visits are made by request.


All sessions are confidential. 

Our Bereavement Support Facilitators are here for you.
