For thousands of years people has been living in multi-generation families and households. Birth and death were normal parts of human life. Today we meet people, who try to displace the death and the issue of mortality from their mind. The result is funerals without participation of children or cremation without any form of expressing good bye.

We confess as church, that death is the completion of life. The funeral should be part of a respectable farewell with the deceased one and every man should have has a funeral. We believe with other Christians, that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ gives us hope and reason for thanksgiving even face to face with death. In this belief, we give away those, who died, into the infinite grace and love of God.

The death of a close person is one of the most difficult events in our lives. We help the bereaved persons to see the future not as a heavy burden, but as a new period of life. We help them to reconcile with the coming situation, and we seek with them new hope.

Funeral liturgies are conducted in churches, in cemeteries, or other relevant locations. In those places we also have memorial worships. They can be an opportunity to heal the injury caused by the death of close persons, but also a reminder of our own mortality. We conduct funerals without regard to church denomination or other affiliation of the deceased and relatives.
