Funerals & Memorial Services

Funerals or Memorials are services of Christian worship that praise God and witness to our faith in the resurrection and hope of new creation as we celebrate the life of the one who died and recognize the grief of those gathered in community. These services can be held in the Sanctuary, Elizabeth Cramer Chapel, or the Jud Cramer Ascension Garden. During this difficult time, our Pastors and Staff offer their full support and experience to help ease the burden for you and your family.

Arborlawn is honored to help members and their families plan for these difficult times in advance. Contact Rev. Joy Dister-Dominguez at Joy@ArborlawnUMC.org for resources to begin thinking about the details of your own service or the service of a loved one who is nearing death.

Funerals & Memorials are scheduled based on availability of the worship spaces. Contact Sherry Roth in the Church Office at 817-731-0701 to begin scheduling and planning a service.

Life’s Final Moments

Pastor of Congregational Care. If this is after office hours, please call the office number and dial 8 for the pastoral emergency line. The pastor on call will reach out as soon as possible.
