Throughout their lives, children can experience many kinds of loss – the death of family members, friends, or pets; the loss of home in a move, the loss of familiarity and certainty that comes when a loved one receives a diagnosis, and others. This Compass Points resource provides some Biblical resources, information to help you recognize and understand grief in children, and suggestions on supporting grieving children.
This Resource Roadmap is a list with books, media links, and activities for children, families and faith communities to assist in supporting grieving children.

This Quicksheet includes two activities that you can do with your children or the children in your congregation in order to talk about support systems.
As churches return to in-person gatherings, leaders are seeking to decide how(or whether)to begin, discontinue, adapt, or expand their online ministry. This resource provides questions for reflection and discussion as you discern next steps, along with a range of options for hybrid ministry.
