Grief & Loss
These classes are open to all interested. The classes are required for those enrolled in our Chaplaincy Program. The classes aim to train leaders in raising the level of care for all who call Elmbrook Church their home. The three-year track includes a series of classes, as well as hands on experiences in visitation, mentoring, and ministering to those needing care. To apply for the Chaplaincy program, Contact Jessie at for an application.
