Grace Lutheran Church


There is perhaps no time in the Christian life when the ministry of the church and the consolation of the gospel is more needed than at the time of death.

Grace Lutheran Church

When we are confronted with our mortality and have to say goodbye to someone we love, whether a family member or a member of our congregation, we deeply long to be in community, to hear the proclamation of God’s victory over death in Jesus Christ, and to commend the deceased to the love and mercy of God.


We long to mark the end of a human life, to give thanks for that person and, perhaps, also for the end of an extended illness or period of suffering. The funeral liturgy is a primary place where these spiritual and emotional needs are met.
