We at Samuel United Church of Christ extend our sympathy to you for your loss and we pray that God’s love and grace surround you during this time. We know you may feel overwhelmed at this time, particularly in regards to the many decisions that must be made in planning a funeral or memorial service. Whether gathered in the sanctuary, a funeral home, or at the graveside, we seek to support one another, celebrate the love of the deceased, give thanks for their life, and commend them to God.
Worship in such a time offers consolation to the bereaved by acknowledging their pain and sorrow and providing the Christian community and others with an opportunity to support the bereaved with their presence. Its purpose is to affirm once more the powerful, steadfast love of God from which people cannot be separated, even by death.
For more information about planning a Funeral or Memorial Service at Samuel United Church of Christ, call the Church Office to speak with the Pastor.
