Funerals


Funerals can be a time of mourning, but they can also be a time of rejoicing. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

If a loved one has passed and you need to make funeral arrangements, contact Pastor Lisa at pastorlisadietrich@gmail.com, 319-989-2065 (church), or 319-243-8136 (cell). Pastor Lisa, Intern Andy, and/or the church secretary will work with you on service arrangements and connect you with a cemetery committee member if cemetery arrangements are needed. Traditionally, church members provide lunch following funeral services.


Pre-planning a Funeral

Planning a funeral in advance can be a great gift to your loved ones. Contact Pastor Lisa to receive a guide to funeral planning and a form that you can fill out in advance designating scripture readings, hymns, and other choices for your funeral. The church office will keep the completed form on file to use when the day comes that you are received into heaven.
