Bereavement Ministry – Our Bereavement Ministry is under the direction of Sister Patricia Fowler and Bishop Godfrey A. Stubbs.
Matthew 5:4 says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
Mission Statement: The mission of the Bereavement Ministry is to provide spiritual support and comfort to individuals and their relatives who experience the death of a loved one. We strive to comfort and encourage those who are confined to their homes, hospitals and other health-care facilities due to illness or other medical conditions.
The bereavement ministry will also help the family make funeral plans—whether held at the church or at another location. They may take on the responsibility of notifying others about the date, time and location of the funeral. If asked, they can also order the flowers, set up the sanctuary, organize a potluck, answer phone calls and perform many other tasks that would otherwise monopolize the time of grieving family members.
