Funerals

Everyone dies. It is one of the great truths of life - it comes to an end. When it does, a well-conducted Christian funeral service is able to offer hope to all those who mourn.

A Christian funeral service has four purposes: to witness to God's faithfulness in life and death; to thank God for the life of the deceased person; to comfort those who are mourning; and to dispose reverently of the body. Only after the final disposal of the body is the funeral concluded.
