When the death of a loved one is imminent or has occurred, it is often a time of deep grief and pain as we wrestle with loss. It can also be a very stressful time for those charged with making final arrangements and coordinating with service providers and others. Decatur First is honored to provide care and support during this difficult time.

We're here to help navigate the many decisions you must make when a loved one dies and to find closure and peace in this process. Planning a funeral or memorial service can be a blessing to those in grief, not only a time for the joys and struggles of a person’s life to be named and entrusted to God but also a time for remembering and reaffirming Jesus’ promise of resurrection for the deceased and for ourselves.

The information on this site is provided as a beginning point for families and friends facing the death of a loved one. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our pastor if you have questions or would like to discuss your circumstances.
