Empowers Believers; Reaches the Community and Beyond
Funeral and Memorial
The pastors, staff, prayer groups and the congregation extend our deepest sympathy to anyone who lost a loved one. All wish to offer their services to you in your time of special need.
The Christian funeral service is the final dedication of a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ, and, like the first dedication at baptism, occurs as an act of worship. The Gospel of Jesus Christ meets our deepest grieves and anxieties about death with an even deeper hope.
The congregation and its pastors want to minister to families on the occasion of death. When a loved one dies, we hope you will call one of our pastors as soon as his or her presence would be helpful to you, regardless of the hour. Pastors may be reached by contacting them directly or by contacting the church office at (847) 639-7627.
The Funeral as Worship, Thanksgiving and Memory
The Christian funeral is a service of worship in which we thank God for the gifts of life, including those that extend beyond death. And we especially give God thanks for this special person who lived among us and who now, even in death, continues in God's love and care, and lives on in our memory.
While recommending the service in The United Methodist Church Book of Worship, our pastors are happy to plan with you a service that meets your particular needs and wishes.
The pianist and organist are available upon request to assist in the service.
The CUMC Funeral Coordinator serves as a liaison between the family and the church office, the Funeral Luncheon/Dinner Coordinators, and the Funeral Home. Our Funeral Coordinators, Susan Heizer and Dawn Ferree will be glad to work with you and guide you through the general funeral procedures of our local church. Please, feel free to contact them by calling the church office at (847) 639-7627.
UMW Funeral Luncheon/Dinner Committee
The funeral Luncheon/Dinner Committee is under the umbrella of the UMW. Judy Sutliff is the coordinator in charge. You may contact her to discuss cost and make arrangements by calling the church office (847) 639-7627.
