Basics You Should Expect When Planning A Christian Memorial Service

When a Christian dies, it is believed to be the end of their life on earth, and the beginning of another life, either in heaven or hell. When a believer dies, friends and family normally hold a Christian funeral service, to celebrate the life the person lived while on earth. The prayers can either be held in a church or in a crematorium.

One of the first things you will need to do is to contact a Pastor and inform them of the passing away of your loved one. If the deceased used to attend a particular church, it would be best to talk to their Pastor. If they deceased did not belong to any particular church, then ask for referrals from a funeral home or friends on which Pastor and church to get in touch with.

During the ceremony, the Pastor will welcome the attendees. He will then proceed to give a sermon, drawn from the bible. You can get one of the deceased's friends or relatives to do the bible readings.

Give people an opportunity to present any personal poems or music. You can ask if there are any personal speakers who would like to say something special about the deceased person. Ensure that there is a photo or photos of the deceased present during the event.

The minister will then proceed to say prayers. Prayers of thanksgiving for the life of the deceased and for strength for his surviving friends and relatives are said. A final hymn can be sung and attendees given a moment for reflection.

Before the end of the Christian funeral service, make any required announcements. This is to give further guidance to the attendees about the next part of the program. You can let them know where the final resting place of the deceased will be. Prayers of final committal are made at the graveside as the coffin is lowered into the grave.
