Basic Details You Should Know When Arranging A Christian Funeral 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.

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.

Allow individuals to make special presentations. This includes any poems or songs that someone may want to perform. Having a eulogy is also important. A eulogy highlights the life of the individual and how their life affected the life of the people around them. Have a picture of the deceased strategically placed during the ceremony.

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.
