Church Funeral Resolution, Pastoral Log/Record for Funerals, Scriptures & Policy

The Church Funeral Resolution, Funeral Pastoral Log or Record form, Scriptures, & Policy are available to download, customize and print.



The resolutions for funerals below you can use in your church administrative office along with Funeral Scriptures to use in these services to help lift up and encourage the family members of the deceased.



A funeral resolution is very much like an eulogy, but it is an official church document. 

When writing the introduction of the funeral resolution, it is important to note that the deceased was close to God and has moved on from this world. After this statement, you include the "whereas" statements, which are the details of the deceased church and family life and how they helped the community. After these statements, you write the funeral resolution, which are the acts taken to resolve the death. In the funeral resolution final statement, write the concluding statement. In the funeral resolution closing statement once again acknowledge the family by stating a brief comforting or encouraging sentiment.

In the funeral resolution,  always seek to discover the preference of the grieving family if at all possible. At times, some families prefer not to have the funeral resolution with long drawn out homecomings, especially in the unexpected events of tragic death circumstances. If possible, have communication to make sure you have the wishes of the family and then work the funeral services accordingly.
