Grief Ministry


Grief Recovery Fellowship Ministry:

Dear Friend, 


We are starting GriefShare support meetings for those that have lost a loved one. Scripture reminds us that "the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit," Psalms 34:18. Montgomery First SDA church will begin meeting virtually on Sunday, 14 November, from 8:00-9:30 a.m (CST.) via Zoom in support of the bereaved. These meetings will offer support on understanding grief and how to prayerfully manage your personal recovery journey. Recognizing that we're all in different stages of our journey in grief recovery; each meeting will gradually build upon our approach to understanding and managing grief. Thus, we humbly request that all attend so as to comfort one another along the path (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). The meetings will be led by trained laypersons; and offer video lectures, fellowship, reflection, and resources to help you on your journey. Participants can join the meetings by logging in to a Zoom meeting or by calling in to the meeting (see below). We hope that you will save the date, and join us for this meeting. Please share with family and friends. Reply if you have questions and/or need assistance. 


Prayer Requests: We would like to pray for you. Please send your prayer requests to

Grief Share & Recovery Team:

Thank you again for your willingness to serve and support our church Grief ministry!  In the midst of our mourning...especially in this past week...I am sending this message to help us further prepare. 


Leader Manuals, for Managing our Grief were passed out on Sabbath. If I missed you, let's find one another on Sabbath so that I can give you a copy of the book. We will use as a guide for support groups. Please read the book. Please Save the Date for an October meeting/training and our first GriefShare support seminar that is scheduled in November. The upcoming meeting will allow you to ask questions, gain clarity, and help make decisions as we continue on this journey. Thank you and God bless!
