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
When “the church returns to the building,” we will again offer Walking the Mourner’s Path, a series of eight weekly 90-minute workshops centered on one concept of grief each week; workbooks are utilized to provide for discussions and explorations; class size is limited to about 10 participants who have lost someone to death. Stay tuned! Contact the Rev. Louise Samuelson.
