In your hour of loss, we would like to express our deep and heartfelt sympathy in your hour of bereavement and would like you to know that our prayers are with you at this hour.

THE SERVICE


crossA funeral service at Friendship Worship Center is a celebration of life.

The funeral is God’s way of bringing comfort to the hearts of those who mourn as scripture is read, prayer is offered, praises are sung, grief is expressed, the gospel is preached, remembrance is cherished; and it is an occasion in which we, by the grace of God, bless the name of the One who gives and takes away. The presence of family and friends around at this time serves to support and strengthen those who sorrow. The funeral gives thanks for life and lifts meaningful memories of lost loved ones helping us learn vital lessons from it.

Thus, in the funeral service, we gather primarily to worship God and confess our faith in a living Savior. Though we mourn our loss and remember our loved one, our focus is fixed on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
