THE LILLY GROVE STEPHEN GRIEF SUPPORT MINISTRY

 

Grieving the loss of someone – in whatever form that loss takes place – is a very personal and highly individual experience. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief.  How you grieve depends on many factors, including your personality and coping style, your life experience, your faith, and the nature of the loss. It is important to understand that grieving is a process which takes time. Healing happens gradually; it can’t be forced or hurried – and there is no “normal” timetable for grieving. Some people start to feel better in weeks or months. For others, the grieving process is measured in years.  Whatever your grief experience, it’s important to be patient with yourself and allow the process to naturally unfold.

 

The mission of the Lilly Grove Stephen Grief Support Ministry is to:

 

  • Proclaim to those who grieve the Lord’s promise:  “Blessed are those who mourn; they will

be comforted.”

  • Companion others in their walk through the grief process
  • Be a blessing to those who mourn
  • Give hope when all hope seems lost
  • Assist in the healing of the physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual realms of

suffering.
