Q: Is it worth the extra trouble to have a church funeral?

A: Yes!  The only two times the Christ Candle is lit for an individual is on the day of his/her baptism and at his/her funeral.  A Christian funeral is a worship service that gives thanks to God for the gift of life and salvation, offers comfort to the bereaved that comes when the Good News of Jesus is shared, and connects the participants with the  the church community.  While a church funeral is not possible in all cases, it is encouraged.
