The Care Ministry Team knows how difficult it is to lose a loved one. You are not alone in your grief.  We are here to walk alongside you every step of the way.  We will work closely with you and your family throughout the planning to honor your loved one’s life on Earth as well as their eternal life in Heaven.

Memorial Service


We have provided you with planning documents to guide you in preparation of your own or a loved one’s memorial service. If you choose to complete these forms for yourself, please submit them to Melissa Wenzl in the church office. We will create a permanent file of your wishes and your database record will reflect that you have pre-planned portions of your own memorial service.

May God’s peace and presence be with you as you plan for the season of eternal life.


Your Loved One’s Service

Please contact us at same time as the funeral home, so we can discuss and coordinate your wishes for date, time, place, and type of service. Then plan on a 1-2 hour meeting with the Pastor to discuss the funeral details. This meeting will include the officiating pastor and a member of the Care Ministry Team and will be an opportunity to connect face to face and plan the service. This meeting can either be held at the church or in your home. This will be the opportunity to select favorite scriptures and discuss musical choices.
