FUNERALS
The loss, through death, of a loved one or friend is one of life’s most difficult moments.  As Christians, we  believe that death does not mean the end of life, for our hope rests with the promise that we will spend eternity in the presence of God.  (John 14:1-3)  However, the loss represented by death is still very painful.

Recognizing that the pain goes deep and that the healing process takes time, we are here to serve you in a variety of ways.  As a congregation, we see our role as supporting you in your time of hurt while enabling you to take the initial steps in the healing process.
