Upcoming Events

Can you imagine

Coming together with mothers who love the Lord and want Him to use them to help other mothers who like themselves, have lived through the devastation of their child’s death? Imagine the light these mothers can bring into that dark place of loss that so many endure each day without the understanding of someone who has been there.

This coming together is to lift up, bringing a smile to a face that has endured far too many tears. This group provides a link to a future that cannot be imagined from the depths of despair. The sharing of faith as well as bright memories and photos, aid in clearing away the debris of guilt, anger, or depression, to focus on the strength that coming together with an understanding friend can bring.

This is Umbrella Ministries. We’d love for you to share in the positive, upward and onward momentum that Umbrella Ministries offers, mother to mother, heart to heart.
