Bereavement Ministry

The mission of the Bereavement Ministry  at Emmanuel Baptist Church  is to be a resource to our Emmanuel Family in their time of grief.  Our goal is ease the burden as much as possible during a family member’s loss.

The Bereavement Ministry:

  • Notify secretary & church  officials of the death
  • Contact family members on behalf of EBC
  • Inform other Ministries of family members needs (feeding family, etc.)
  • Provide support and guidance to family
  • Inform secretary offuneral arrangements to initiate ordering of flowers
  • Send Bereavement Cards to congregation  members in the event of a loss to an extended family member
  • Prepare and read Member’s Church  Resolution
  • Refer to Howard Thurman Counseling Center as a resource to assist with grief
  • Provide continued support to family after loss

In your time of need, you may contact Carolyn  Burns (722-0674), Betty Brockman (788-1157) or Arm Loyd at the church office (788-7023).
