In times of loss and grief it is important for us to hear words of God's promise and receive the support of a caring community. If you have lost a loved one, Our Redeemer's Lutheran Church offers our condolences to you and your family and we pray for your healing and comfort.
A funeral is a time for family, friends and community to come together to offer support to one another and hear the gospel proclaimed. Every funeral is both a time of mourning for the departed and a service of worship to the God who makes us all, and who offers us refuge at the end of our life.
Normally, the funeral home of your choice will make the arrangements with the church; all you need to do is ask them where you would like the service to be held, and they will work out all the details with us. If you live in Benson and need a funeral director, Zniewski funeral home is one option.
If you cannot afford the services of a funeral director, Our Redeemer's will work with you to host a worship service for your loved one. We cannot offer all the services of a funeral director, only a service of worship and thanksgiving to God for the life of the departed. Family will need to take care of all other arrangements and details. Before planning this option, please contact the church staff and review our policy for funerals without the use of a funeral director.
