If you are reading this guide on the TLC Memorial website, it is possible that you feel sad, lost, confused, stunned, or possibly even angered and overwhelmed by the loss of a loved one. Perhaps there were times in the past where you were able to comfort someone who suffered a loss. Now you're not truly sure what you need to do, or where you can turn to find comfort, love and a caring heart to help bear the pain and grief you feel.
Staff and volunteers at TLC are committed to helping and guiding you through your time of loss.Our pastors will help in planning the funeral for your loved one; meeting with the family of the deceased, consoling and planning the funeral liturgy.
The TLC Funeral Coordinator will meet with you and the family, taking care of the many details in the funeral service at TLC, such as hymns, organist, pianist, soloists and musicians. The coordinator will help plan and organize the visitation that typically takes place at TLC an hour before the funeral service. In the TLC Narthex there can be displays of photos, videos and other memorabilia of the loved one. The coordinator will provide guidance and assistance in setting up those displays. Also, if there is a social gathering after the service in TLC’s Fellowship Hall, the Funeral Coordinator works with the family in arranging a catered luncheon or simple refreshments presented by the TLC Funeral Luncheon Team.
TLC Care Ministry will meet with you and the family, then prepare a lovely bulletin for the service.Photographs of the loved one are requested and included within the bulletin.
All TLC services in the church sanctuary come with private or public live-stream coverage available on our YouTube channel.For those unable to attend the service, the live-stream and on-demand playback offers a way to “be there” for those they love. Within 48 hours after the service, all elements (bulletin, photo memorial video, live-stream archive, photographs, etc.) are presented on a permanent individualized webpage for the deceased on TLC’s Memorial Garden website, tlcmemorial.com
