I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. - John 11: 25-26
For a Christian, the funeral or memorial service is a service of witness to the resurrection and a thanksgiving for life and the particular life of an individual. The order of worship follows the Reformed liturgy led by the pastor. Family members and friends, including other pastors, may participate as well.
