Pregnancy and Infant Loss Ministry of Lake Murray Presbyterian

A group of mourning parents at Lake Murray Presbyterian Church in Chapin, South Carolina got together and realized the lack of resources to help parents, family members and friends cope, grieve and try to understand pregnancy and infant loss.  The LMPC PAIL Ministry was created from these conversations to help support those impacted by a pregnancy or infant loss.

LMPC PAIL is able to provide the following services to those impacted by a pregnancy or infant loss:

A devotional, available for free download here.

Annual Pregnancy and Infant Loss Sunday towards the end of January

Hospital support to include handmade offerings from LMPC so families have something to take home with them

PAIL Devotional Book penned by individuals affected by a pregnancy or infant loss

Following families for a year post loss at key grief points

Individual counseling referrals as needed

Topic, scripture and discussion focused small group sessions offered twice a year.

The yellow rose cradling the peaceful baby in our logo was purposefully selected.  When a loss of this nature occurs, some hospitals will adorn the door of the mother with a yellow rose, to make staff and visitors aware that a loss has occurred to help those entering to be sensitive to the loss.  Yellow has also become a color to symbolize hope for the future and is “gender neutral” for those which are unknown.

More information and support can be found in our social media outlets:
