Grief Ministry


Grief Ministry

During difficult times in life, individuals or families might need extra spiritual and emotional support.  We are here to give the care and support you need to make it through.  As a community of believers, we are called to love and pray for one another in times of need.  If you are facing trials, please use any of the resources below or contact one of our pastors. 

Grief Ministry

The Trinity Lutheran Church Grief Ministry Team reaches out to those who are grieving through cards and other forms of communication during the year following the death of a loved one. If you have suffered a loss in your life, please contact Sara Schlichting at  so that we can offer support and encouragement during this difficult time. The Grief Ministry Team is part of Trinity's Building Caring Relationships (BCR) in Christ group. 


Take comfort in God's love while grieving and sharing together to rebuild one's life after the loss of a loved one with our GriefShare class.  This class features help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend.  GriefShare is a special class and support group designed to help you rebuild your life after losing a loved one.  Joleen Hoff, who has experienced grief of her own, leads the group and wants to help you through the difficult days ahead.  We know grief can be unbearable at times and want to be here to support you through your journey.  Contact Joleen at
