Grief Ministry

Grief Ministry

When a loved one dies, people often struggle with difficult, painful feelings.  Many feel abandoned by friends, relatives and even God. The Grief Ministry at the Mt. Vernon Church provides Christian resources and spiritual help, reaching out to those who are grieving – again and again during that difficult first year and after.  We are the After People.  


We are there:

  • …after the phone call you hoped you’d never get
  • …after the divorce papers are served and the bottom falls our of your life
  • …after the funeral when everyone has left and the emotions you’ve held at bay come crashing in on you
  • …after the doctor says, “I am sorry, there is nothing else we can do”
  • …after the gavel goes down, the handcuffs go on and your loved one is led away
  • …after you find a pink slip with your final paycheck
  • …after your family and friends have heard your story one too many times, but you still need to talk it out.  

We are there.
