Bereavement Services

Within the cycle of life, we are oftentimes faced with challenges that can easily leave us feeling alone, rejected, dejected, unsure and even scared.

Pastoral Care seeks to reinforce the Good News that Jesus cares. His word assures us in Joshua Chapter 1 that He will always be with us. He says, "I will never leave you, nor forsake you."

There is comfort in knowing that Jesus Christ is right there with us every step of the way through the good times and troubling times.

Antioch has a capable and committed team of Pastoral Care servants who are ready to assist with the difficulties that life brings. Whether it is visitation during a hospital stay, planning a funeral, or comfort during the loss of a loved one, we will help you get “connected” with our pastoral care services.

To notify us of a scheduled or current hospital stay, a recent death of a loved one, a sick or shut-in member or for counseling, please contact our Pastoral Care Ministry or Counseling Services.  You may also use our online services to submit your prayer request and register for Grief Support Groups.
