Funerals

stained glass

When a loved one dies, the church is here to surround you with compassion and practical support.  Contact the church office to speak with one of our pastors.  We will work with you and the funeral home to plan a service that honors your loved one’s life within the context of the story of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ.

Our Funeral Reception Coordinator will also work with you to plan a lunch/reception to follow the service.

Our Grief Support Ministry Team will also coordinate follow up with next of kin, and where appropriate assign a grief journey partner to walk with you in your grief.

I share with you the agony of your grief,
The anguish of your heart finds echo in my own.
I know I cannot enter all you feel
Nor bear with you the burden of your pain;
I can but offer what my love does give:
The strength of caring,
The warmth of one who seeks to understand
The silent storm-swept barrenness of so great a loss.
This I do in quiet ways,
That on your lonely path
You may not walk alone.
~Howard Thurman
