Basic Details You Should Notice When Planning A Christian Memorial

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
