“What is life?
It is a flash of firefly in the night.
It is a breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is as the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”
~ Chief Crowfoot (1830 – 1810)
You are dust, and to dust you shall return.
~ Genesis 3:19b
Death is a mystery that all of us must experience regardless of who we are. It is one of the most democratic and equalizing events in life. Death is an integral part of life, and our Christian faith informs us to embrace death with enduring hope: “Whether we live or whether we die, we belong to God.” (Romans 14:8) It is a time of mourning for the loss, and it is also a time of honoring and celebrating the person’s life with thanksgiving.
Our sanctuary offers a beautiful, traditional setting for a funeral with a grand piano and state-of-the art cameras and video production equipment. We can provide a minister for grief counseling and planning, an accomplished concert pianist for music, and a media director for recording and/or live streaming the service for those who cannot be there in person. Our facility includes a large social hall with a full-service kitchen for the reception. If you want to have a funeral at our church, please contact the church office to make the arrangements.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
~ Romans 8:38-39
