At a person’s death, the church shares the grief of those who mourn and remembers the brevity of life on earth. At the funeral we give voice to sorrow, thank God for our loved one, and entrust this companion of ours into the hands of God. Trusting in God’s promise in baptism that we are claimed by Christ forever, we rest in the sure hope of the resurrection. When the church gathers to mark the end of life, Christ crucified and risen is the witness of worship, the strength of mutual consolation, and the hope of healing.
Funerals and Memorial Services are held in the Worship Center. The Gathering Space, adjacent to the worship center, provides a fitting setting for a visitation prior to the funeral or memorial service.
Those who are an active part of the church’s community may wish to consider in advance their wishes for a funeral or memorial service. Thoughtful selection of certain hymns and scripture can be a gift for those who remain. Download a Guide to Christian Burial.
