Rev. David Emery is our Chaplain and After-Care Director, and part of his ministry is to direct the services that we provide for our families following the funeral. He comes to us with a wealth of experience in pastoral ministry, having served congregations in Michigan, Wisconsin, and North Carolina during his 38 years of pastoral ministry. Having lived in the High Point area for 30 years, he has walked through the "valley of death" with hundreds of local families.

Rev. Emery would be glad to assist you in your time of need also. You are encouraged to contact him at 336-889-5045 or at davidmarkemery@gmail.com.

In addition, we encourage you to access our on-line tools which include:

 Interactive After Care, with helpful videos that can be easily accessed and viewed in the comfort of your home.

• Group Grief Support, which is an interactive group session that meets monthly on-line, and is led by grief experts. This is not group therapy per se, but it is an opportunity to connect with others who are walking the same path.

We also have periodic educational and outreach events that are designed to bring comfort and help to those in need. Please see the Upcoming Events to view a complete list of those activities. Our goal is to assist you in this adjustment process, remembering that there are no magic potions to make the pain go away, only tools to aid you in your discovery of life after the death of a loved one. Please let us know what we can do to be of service to you.

In addition, with our online grief support you’re assured of our commitment to helping you through this difficult time. It doesn’t matter what time of day, or what day of the week you need support, we're here for you. You can access online counseling services, join in group grief support, or watch our interactive videos, anytime: 24/7. No matter how you feel at this moment, you have our commitment - you're never alone.


In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve,  we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
