Funeral Service For Immediate Family of Active Member:

Not only does our church exist for our members but also for their families. We are pleased to extend the use of the facilities for the funeral service of a member’s immediate family members.

 

The Sanctuary may be used for the Funeral service without charge. The Fellowship Hall may be used by the family for the meal after the service and the family is responsible for providing the meal, the preparation, serving and clean-up. There is no charge for Fellowship Hall use in this case. However, most families choose to give a generous donation to the church and the serving church staff.

 

If the family desires the church to provide the meal, they will be put in touch with the church Culinary Staff who will cater the meal. The entire costs shall be the responsibility of the family. The costs include the food and supplies, and compensation for the preparation and serving. The cost will be determined by the menu and number of people being served.

 

Outsider caters are not allowed to come in unless prior approval is received from the Church Office. 

In no case will we accept anyone contacting the caterer/cook(s) before contacting the church office. The caterer/cook(s) are only to be contacted by the church office.

 

 

 

 

 

Immediate Family

The Immediate Family, for this purpose, shall be defined as the Active Member’s Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Child, Grandparent or Grandchild.

 

 

                                                                                                        

Funeral Service For A Non-Member:

There is a suggested donation amount for the use of the Sanctuary for the funeral service of a non-member. Contact the church office.

 

If the family desires to have the family meal in the Fellowship Hall after the service, the meal will be catered by the church culinary staff and the family will cover all expenses. The entire costs shall be the responsibility of the family. The costs include the food and supplies, and compensation for the preparation and serving. The cost will be determined by the menu and number of people being served and personnel required to serve.

 

 

 

Funeral Times

 

Funeral services held at the church are scheduled for 11:00 AM. The viewing is an hour or two hours before the funeral service begins. We carefully try to avoid scheduling funerals on Tuesdays and Saturdays. - If there is to be any  fraternal presentation or ceremony, permission may be granted during the viewing.

 

 

 

Final Viewing

 

The final viewing will take place immediately before the service begins. The casket will be closed and will not be opened after the eulogy.- This is so that the the family can leave the church with the "Word Of God" as the climax and conclusion of the service.
