Someone is dying or has died? What do I do?

Christian burial is the reverent committal of the deceased to the care of Almighty God and the bodily remains to the elements from which the body came. It provides an opportunity for family and friends to remember with thankfulness the person, and to be comforted and strengthened in their bereavement. The Christian burial service combines true acknowledge of death with Christian hope and thanksgiving to God for life.

When death comes Rev Cheryl at 902-225-8305 should be called by the family as soon as possible for pastoral support and practical help in making funeral arrangements. more
