Our Goal

We want to be a loving reminder of God’s presence in difficult seasons of life. We provide support to the bereaved, hospitalized, terminally ill, and others facing a crisis. Our pastors, deacons, nurses, and grief team are available to walk with you through the trials of life.

Pastoral Care

Our pastors are here to offer our emotional and spiritual support to you when you’re going through a difficult time. Please reach out to us if we can be of help. We’re available for hospital visits, home visits for the homebound, and appointments with anyone who needs listening, encouragement, comfort, and prayer.

Memorial Services

A Christian memorial service is a worship service which offers an opportunity for loved ones to give thanks to God for the life of the deceased and to hand him or her over to the loving arms of Jesus Christ, our Savior. In our memorial services, we affirm that Jesus, in his own death and resurrection, defeated the ultimate power of death, and because He lives, we too, shall continue to live with him forever. Our church family prays that God’s grace will be with you as you face this time of loss. We want to extend God’s love to you in what we know is often a difficult time. Please contact Mary Reith for more information on planning a memorial service, a reception at the church following the service, and associated fees.


Our deacons are lay people with a special calling to care for the congregation and the community. Deacons are available to offer confidential support for short-term situations and for longer-term needs. We supplement the pastoral care provided by the pastors, and we coordinate with the wide variety of organized caring ministries at Sandia Presbyterian Church.

GriefShare is our ministry to the bereaved. It's a support group that meets weekly for 13-week sessions. There are three key parts to GriefShare: video seminars, small group discussions, and a workbook with personal exercises. We offer two 13-week sessions each year in the fall and spring. You are welcome to begin attending our GriefShare groups at any point. Between sessions, we provide informal support group meetings. Each fall we offer a special session called “Surviving the Holidays." Our grief support team is here to provide you with help and encouragement after the death of loved one. Our caring facilitators have experienced healing and hope after grieving their own losses. Our trained facilitators provide safe, confidential, Bible-based grief support in a group setting.

We have several nurses available for consultation, advice, and/or assessment of medical issues or concerns. Our nurses do not do hands-on or direct nursing care. They hold monthly blood pressure screenings and help with home and hospital visits.

Trusting God in Difficulty and Uncertainty

We do not determine God’s reliability from our circumstances. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ establish God’s faithfulness. We trust God because God cannot do more for us than what God has done through Christ.
