Memorials and Funerals

Memorials and Funerals

"In life, in death, in life beyond death,
    God is with us.
We are not alone."
(United Church Creed)

 

At Gilmore Park United, we feel privileged to be a part of your plans for a service of memorial and celebration of the life of your loved one. Be assured of our deepest sympathy to you and all who grieve this loss.

We consider a funeral or memorial service to be first and foremost a ministry that proceeds from Jesus Christ, our hope and our salvation. The primary purpose of a Christian church service is therefore to worship God, and secondly to celebrate the life of the deceased. It is a time to bring a word of comfort and inspiration to all who are grieving, and to bring a sense of closure to a relationship which has now ended.

Call the Church Office for questions or to make an appointment to see the minister (see the contact tab at the top of the page).
