MARRIAGE MINISTRYFBC partners with Midland Community Family Ministries to strengthen and encourage families.See http://www.mcfamilyministries.org/ for more details.FUNERALSThe loss, through death, of a loved one or friend is one of life’s most difficult moments. As Christians, we believe that death does not mean the end of life, for our hope rests with the promise that we will spend eternity in the presence of God. (John 14:1-3) However, the loss represented by death is still very painful.Recognizing that the pain goes deep and that the healing process takes time, we are here to serve you in a variety of ways. As a congregation, we see our role as supporting you in your time of hurt while enabling you to take the initial steps in the healing process.While some might be tempted to avoid the funeral, we encourage those who are grieving their loss to attend the funeral for a number of reasons:
Where should a funeral be held?This is a very personal decision and rests entirely with the wishes of the family.
Some choose to utilize the service of a funeral home. Most funeral homes have lovely chapels which are designed to accommodate these desires. Other families celebrate the lives of their loved ones in a church.A third option is to remember the loved one in a private grave-side gathering with immediate family and friends. This is an excellent choice for those who prefer a small, quiet, and brief time of remembering their loved one in the privacy of a small circle of close friends and family.Ware Smith Woolever Funeral DirectorsMidland Chapel1200 W.
