The Funeral Sample Policy below will serve as a guide or tool for your church to create their very own church funeral policies if needed. This sample policy and procedures includes: Options for the Right of Burial, Funeral Times, Funeral Fees for Non-Members, Funeral Supervision and Nursery for Funerals.
The Funeral or Memorial Service is normally held in church, cemetery, chapel or the funeral home. The Pastor normally encourages you to consider the church. Their church is familiar, designed for worship, and is rich with the symbols of their faith.
As Christians we believe that God in Christ has conquered death. Death brings separation and decisions that are very painful but our Christian faith enables us to witness to our faith as we make final arrangements for our loved ones.The church offers a ministry of love, hope, concern and compassion to all who grieve.
Pastoral counseling is one of the most valuable services the church provides to its members at the time of death. When a death occurs, the Pastor or minister should be consulted immediately because he or she is uniquely equipped to give those Christian services the bereaved family needs at that time. There will be important decisions that the family has to make at this time that the minister is able to discuss objectively with love and compassion. The minister will need to meet with the family also to arrange the funeral service.
What is the difference between a funeral and a memorial service?
Simply put: the body of the deceased is at a funeral service whereas the deceased remains or no remains are at a memorial service.
The death of a loved one, regardless of the circumstances, is a very difficult time of significant loss and grief. Because this is such a difficult time for the family or church family who has suffered the loss, the policy for church funerals should be precise and should leave no reason for question of what to do or when it should be done.
The policy and procedure for church funerals will be a must if your church does funerals.Click on the link to download the file below:
