In addition to bereavement counseling, this team works with the minister to provide both church and community resources. We work with the individuals or family needing care both before and after death in whatever manner is needed. We assist with memorial service planning and receptions. We follow up for months with the bereaved as they move in their journey of reintegrating life without their loved one. We hope to also smooth the way for re-engagement with the church community when they are ready.
