Bereavement Ministry

Purpose Statement:
The Bereavement ministry exists at Zion Baptist Church to assist you as you plan to honor your deceased loved one. Our goal is to provide comfort and support. We extend support by reducing stress as you process decisions and take steps to coordinate celebrating your loved one.

What To Expect:
Our ministry is here to comfort and serve from the first moments and throughout the recovery period. We will coordinate with other ministries to assist you with the Ministerial staff, Music ministry, Culinary Ministry, Media Ministry and Ushers Ministry.  We are available to provide preparation, planning, and coordination with funeral homes, cemeteries and memorial needs.  A detailed checklist is provided as well a template for suggested order of service.  Coordination includes facility usage, date, time, and selection of music, service participants, and family fellowship meal.
