The Grief Ministry offers love and support when you experience loss.

Grief Ministry & Support
During this time of pandemic, SJD continues to be available to support those who are experiencing the loss of family and friends. You might find it helpful to meet regularly with a Stephen Minister. This link will take you to a page that explains Stephen Ministry and how to ask for a Stephen Minister.

We also have two trained grief facilitators who would be happy to meet with you over the phone. Please contact Norie Baldwin or Judy Thornton to set up a mutually convenient time for a telephone conversation.


Walking the Mourner’s Path
The Grief Ministry offers love and support when you experience a loss. Walking the Mourner’s Path will again be offered this fall to those who have lost someone to death. This is a series of eight weekly 90-minute workshops centered on one concept of grief each week; workbooks at the cost of $50 are utilized to provide for discussions and explorations; class size is limited to about 10 participants. Norie Baldwin and Judy Thornton serve as facilitators. The group will meet on Tuesdays, beginning September 21 and concluding on November 9, at 6:00 p.m. in the Chapel Family Room. It is important that you are able to attend all sessions. Please contact The Rev. Louise Samuelson if you are interested in enrolling for the workshops.
