Grief Care Ministry

To lose someone you love can be unbearable, no matter how strong your faith. At Northcliffe, we want to help you through this time by offering you options for you to discuss and explore the feelings you are going through.
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
You may contact the church office to make an appointment with
our Pastor of Care, Pastor Jerry Waugh. Pastor Jerry will help you 
walk through the grief process. 
We have some wonderful Christian counselors in Hernando County. We highly recommend you contact a professional Christian counselor who can provide short term or long term counseling as needed. Here are just a few Christian counseling services in Hernando County:

Hope Beyond Today is a small group designed specifically for anyone who is experiencing heartache from the loss of a loved one through death. First, it is our purpose to encourage and comfort you. Second, to share with you grief wisdom and insights. Third, to allow you and additional grieving individuals to come alongside each other, sharing your journey of grief. This is a10 week DVD series with group discussion and a unique grief workbook is provided.

You will probably be hearing the words “Happy Holidays” many times in the next few weeks.  Although we would all like to experience happiness during the holiday season, sometimes we don’t. Instead of this being the season to be jolly, it is a season when we will be struggling with sadness or loneliness. We want to invite you to view this special video designed for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. It is led by Fran Welch, Grief Care Facilitator, and Pastor Jerry Waugh, Pastor of Care. 
We hope you will join Fran Welch and  Pastor Jerry Waugh as they discuss ways to make it easier to navigate the holidays if you have lost a loved one. They will be sharing eight helpful reminders to help you as you share the time with friends, family, and a season filled with memories.
