Every dollar you give delivers HOPE to adults and children in times of deep pain and is also used to expand our grief support services within West Michigan and beyond. Starlight Ministries is fortunate for the gracious generosity from individuals, businesses and church communities that support grieving people in our communities. It is because of these donations that no family is ever charged a fee for our peer-support services.

“Starlight Ministries has been a beacon of hope in my darkest early days of loss. I have gained a close friend who is on a similar grief path as I am. A lifelong bond was formed.” Jean


“Our beautiful adult son passed away in his sleep on Dec. 10, 2021. It is hard for me to even write this… that’s the first time I’ve ever written that…

My husband and I were so shocked and so devastated. Our son was such a bright light. So kind, so athletic, so handsome, so funny, and friends with everyone. On Dec 10, he didn’t feel well and went to lie down. He woke up in heaven. His wife and Brady’s loved ones and friends are shattered.

We heard about Starlight and started attending only 8 weeks into this unbelievable journey. We didn’t know what to do or where to go. We were very broken… Starlight has helped us to see that what we are feeling and facing is ‘normal’, that we all grieve individually. We talk about anything and cry and laugh. We are friends by fire. Tested beyond our strength. Starlight is faith based and comforting in that we have all experienced a devastating, life changing event that most people will never have to know. None of us asked for or want this. We understand the pain.” Shelly
