The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences we will face in life. We trust in the promise of God's abiding presence, and we hope in the resurrection, but we are nonetheless left with the deep pain and grief of loss.
After notifying the church, you will be put in contact with the pastor who will officiate at the ceremony. Together you will arrange for a time and place for the memorial service, as well as the graveside service if desired. The pastors at Federated Church are here to help you bear the pain of loss. Know that our prayers are with you, and that we will do all we can to make the service meaningful and healing.
A printable Memorial Service Guide is available to answer some of the commonly asked questions about planning a memorial service at Federated. In it you will find a list of suggested scripture readings and hymns.
