Funerals and Memorial Services


Jesus said: “I am the resurrection and the life.  All who believe in me, though they die, yet shall they live; and all who live and believe in me shall never die.”  John 11:25-26

Funeral and memorial services are conducted at Light of Christ in the hope and promise of the resurrection to eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Death is bittersweet for all who live, believe, and die in Christ.  It is a mixture of joy and sorrow, laughter and tears, lamentation and celebration, the bitter and the sweet.  We seek to express both in our services, but the primary accent is on joy because Easter has come in all its fullness for the loved one who has died.  

Once a death occurs please contact Pastor Kuenzel as soon as possible to begin planning the service.  The service will be scheduled for a time and date that work well for both the family and the church. In addition to the service the congregation will host a reception in the Fellowship Hall following the service.
