Bereavement Meals

At Dickinson First, we’re fortunate to have loving, caring pastors who are committed to the needs of the congregation and community. Multiple hours of their time are spent in nurturing Christian growth for all of us.


Ministers work closely with lay leaders in the church to ensure that our members and our community are receiving the best, most Christian care possible.

A dedicated group of our members meet weekly to pray for the needs and concerns that are passed to them by individual requests and requests placed in the locked prayer box located in The Commons. Requests are welcomed from anyone, not just members, and prayer is offered in a confidential setting for all requests – more than 100 individuals are typically prayed for each week. Tuesdays, 2:00 - 3:00 pm
The Gulf Parkinson’s Source (GPS) is a non-profit, self-help group that offers support, information, education and understanding to the Parkinson’s community in Galveston County and the surrounding area. Monthly support group meetings are held at Dickinson First. We’re pleased to support the group’s goals of providing an understanding environment where Parkinson’s patients and their families can come together to discuss common problems, find new coping strategies and provide support and encouragement to one another. 1st and 3rd Thursdays, 3:00 - 4:30pm
When we lose a member of the congregation, dedicated, caring members come together to provide the family with a meal during their bereavement. Family members may choose to gather at the church after the funeral or at home, whichever is most comfortable for them. The meal coordinator will speak with a family member to find out where and when they would like the meal served, how many persons are expected and the type meal preferred (sandwiches or hot food, for example).
