Bereavement/Funeral Planning

When a family experiences the death of a loved one, our Bereavement Ministry is there to represent our community by reaching out and offering support. Our team members assist in a variety of ways to help coordinate arrangements and plan for the Funeral or Memorial service.

  • A Bereavement Coordinator meets with the family to discuss and plan the service, including the selection of Scripture readings to be used, and will be in attendance on the day to help the family feel more comfortable.
  • Bereavement Ministers of Hospitality attend the day of the service and act as Ushers/Greeters, a welcoming extension of our community.
  • The Music Director meets with the family to offer musical options, help select musicians and choose the appropriate music for the service. Our Resurrection Choir is also available upon request to help encourage congregational singing at the service.

We also offer assistance for receptions held at our SLM site. These ministers of hospitality, called Arimatheans, help with hosting, set up and clean up of receptions.

Please call the Bereavement Office at 310-540-0329 x274 for more information.
