As Christians, we can look forward with joy and anticipation to the day when our Lord will call us home to Himself in heaven. We can know for certain heaven is ours through faith in Christ’s atonement for our sins on the cross. Thus, we are most certainly “spiritually” prepared for our death.

Unfortunately, many people are not prepared for their death in terms of the preparations that are necessary for the funeral and its arrangements. This guide will help you consider these details and provide you with a means of sharing information with your loved ones, your pastor and the funeral director of your choice. In fact, it is good for you to give a copy of this guide, with the necessary information to your pastor, your funeral director and several family members and friends.

Planning now for your funeral is important. We make plans for many things in life. Some we are never able to do. Yet death and burial are inevitable, and thus, it is crucial that we also plan for it. Planning does not hasten the event.

We hope this guide will be helpful.
