Services of Death & Resurrection
Christ United offers services to families needing support after the loss of a loved one. We can help you with planning a service or an inurnment at the Christ United columbarium (for members and their families), as well as other venues, such as local funeral homes, and military honors at DFW National Cemetery.
“Service of Death and Resurrection” is used in the UMC as being appropriate to any of the wide variety of situations in which this service is used. It expresses clearly the two-fold nature of what is done: the fact of death and bereavement are honestly faced, and the gospel of resurrection is celebrated in the context of God’s baptismal covenant with us in Christ.
Arrangements can be made for a meeting with the minister who is conducting the service, the director of music, and a representative from Care Ministries. Funeral and memorial services include planning of scripture, music, and speakers.
In modern times, the churchyard is no longer used as a place of burial. However, Christ United is able to provide a columbarium for the secure placement of urns containing the cremated remains of both present and former members and their families. Our columbarium assures a peaceful and respectful resting place for all.
