A worship service following the death of a loved one does at least two things: it enables us to face the reality of our mortality and comforts us in the celebration of another reality — life after death in God. As one of our creeds declares: “In life, in death, in life beyond death, we are not alone. Thanks be to God!”
A service where the body of the deceased is present is called a funeral; a memorial service is appropriate when the body of the deceased is not present. Most of the services at Peace United Methodist Church are called A Celebration of Life. Funerals or memorial services are available for Peace UMC members and non-members.
It is the commitment of the clergy of Peace UMC to claim and present a properly balanced and theologically sound experience for all who seek God through worship at the time of death. To this end, please contact our Office to assist those who mourn, and those who look to tomorrow.
