MEMORIALS & FUNERALS
We Too Shall Be Raised
Funeral and memorial services are based on the order of service in The Book of Common Prayer, which says: "The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we too, shall be raised." The liturgy is characterized by joy and the reality that nothing can separate us from the love of God. It also honors the very real grief that comes when someone we love, or struggle to love, dies. The pastoral staff is also available to discuss advance planning of a funeral. Please feel free to contact us.

Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church, and the time when the Christian community welcomes new members into the Household of God.
