What To Expect When Arranging A Christian Funeral Service

A Christian funeral service is usually carried out when a Christian passes on. This ceremony is mainly done to provide closure to the friends and family of the deceased. It is also a dignified way of saying farewell to the deceased.

Choose a venue where the ceremony will be held. This can either be in a church, crematorium, private residence, or anywhere else that is convenient. You will also need to find a Pastor to officiate the ceremony. If the deceased was affiliated to any particular church, approach his Pastor first. If the deceased did not attend any particular church, ask for referrals from close friends about which church to use.

Allocate time for Bible readings and a sermon. The minister will talk about the deceased and encourage the bereaved from verses drawn from the bible. A friend or family member can be given the responsibility of reading the Bible verses.

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 pastor will then proceed to close the ceremony by praying for the bereaved and to give thanks for the life of the deceased. The congregation can then proceed to sing a hymn or hymns as the coffin is carried out. The attendees can be given a few moments to think about the life of the individual at the end of the ceremony.

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.
