Grace needs funeral

Funeral Planning Checklist


  • Call the funeral home to find out which arrangements they will handle for you.
  • Decide location and times for calling hours and service. If you decide to use Grace, contact the Grace Church Facility Scheduler to reserve the rooms you'll need. Specify if you'd like to have a luncheon and the number of guests you expect.
  • If you have a preferred officiant for the funeral, you may contact them or request the funeral home contact them on your behalf. If you have no preference, a pastor will be selected for you based on availability.
  • Choose the Scriptures, songs, and musicians you'd like to have included in the memorial service.
  • Meet with your chosen officiant to share your ideas for the service.
  • Decide who will print song lyrics, if relevant.
  • If services are at Grace, please submit your facility payment prior to the funeral service date.
