Grieving with Hope

Grieving with Hope comforts those who have lost a loved one and struggle with the pain and devastation of death, and invites trust in Him who is “the resurrection and the life.”

The aim of this ministry is to provide comfort and care for those who have lost loved ones.  Those who grieve are encouraged to face their loss, accept the support and empathy of others, and learn what the Bible says about eternal life in Christ.
