Dear Friends in Christ,
We hurt with you today, and we rejoice in Jesus' promises of eternal
life. We are honored and blessed to serve you as you plan the
funeral of your loved one.
Now come all the details of planning the visitation, service,
interment and luncheon. Your funeral director will do a fine job of
helping you with many of the details regarding their services. This
booklet is to help you begin to plan the "church" part of the
We desire to plan every worship service of Christian burial as a
time which is deeply respectful, celebrative, joyful and personal. I
would like to meet with your family at the beginning of your
planning process. At that time we will discuss the choice of hymns,
Bible passages and other aspects of the worship service. Also, I
will want to hear about special aspects of your loved one's life you
would like to highlight in the service. Please call our office as
you begin to plan the funeral.
We also wish to walk with you through these upcoming weeks and
months, with grief counseling and referral services. Please call us
if we can help in any way.
