While not considered a sacrament, providing a Christian ceremony of celebrating the lives of believers and honoring the families grieving their loss, the church of Jesus Christ has a great opportunity to minister God’s love and grace in such times as performing funeral ceremonies. It is therefore the privilege for the church named herein to make available its ministry and facilities for performing such ceremonies, with full understanding that the Session (Ruling Elders) has full authority to determine if and when such ceremonies should be conducted.
