“Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
When a loved one dies, our lives can feel turned upside down and we need to make many decisions in a short amount of time. Our Pastoral Care staff is here to provide emotional support and assist with planning the funeral liturgy. We continue to provide support and resources in the days and months following your loss.
If you experience the loss of a loved one, please contact our parish office at (952) 431-5222.
To receive information about funeral pre-planning, please contact the Pastoral Minister, Christine Sorensen (952) 698-1722. You also may wish to download our Funeral Planning Booklet.
FUNERAL LUNCHEON MINISTRY
Risen Savior Funeral Luncheon Teams continue to provide a caring presence by providing a meal and hospitality in our church hall following the funeral liturgy. The cost of the luncheon is $7.00 per person.
GRIEF FOLLOW-UP MINISTRY
After the funeral, a member of our community reaches out to the families of the deceased to offer support and listening. Cards are sent throughout the first year following the death.
Growing Through Loss is an interdenominational coalition of south suburban churches that offers free support for adults experiencing loss, grief, transition, or relationship and health challenges. A Fall and Spring series are offered every year. The Church of the Risen Savior is an active member of this coalition. Evening meetings include speakers and facilitated, small group discussions.
