Basic Details To Learn When Arranging A Christian Memorial Service

Christians view death as a transition from earthly life into eternity. Usually, when someone dies, their friends and relative want to plan a Christian funeral service, as a form of farewell to the deceased. You can opt to have the ceremony in a church or in a crematorium.

Choose a church and a minister who will preside over the prayers. If the deceased was a member of a particular church, then that would be the first place to make inquiries. Find out if the church is willing to be involved in the burial process. If the deceased was not a member of any church, then ask for recommendations from the funeral home or friends and family on which church and minister to approach to officiate the ceremony.

The ceremony usually begins by the minister welcoming attendees and giving a sermon. Scripture readings can be done by a close friend or family of the deceased. The main aim of the sermon is to celebrate the life of the deceased and to encourage the bereaved.

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.

Prayers are then said. These are prayers to thank God for the life of the person and for comfort to the bereaved. The congregation can be given a moment to reflect on the life of the deceased or death in general. The coffin is then taken out of the church.

At the end of a Christian funeral service, announcements should be made before the attendees leave church. Provide any essential information on the final burial arrangements. Inform attendees where the burial will take place and when.
