Funerals and Memorials
Funerals and memorial services are complex events that must balance many factors, including religious requirements, emotional needs, and financial realities. They are also services of worship. The purpose of these services is to give thanks to God as the Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer of life, celebrate the life of the deceased, aid family and friends in their mourning and draw on the promise "... that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38-39)
At the time of death, one of our pastors will work closely with family members to plan the details of the funeral or memorial service and to extend the care of our congregation. For more information, please contact Dionna Schooley, 918-301-1029.
