Funerals enable the family and friends to give thanks for the life of the deceased, while witnessing and commending the loved one to the care of God. Reassurance is offered in the mutual comfort we share as people of faith; and to bear witness to God in Jesus Christ who has destroyed death and is our source of forgiveness, life, and salvation.
If you are visiting this page, it is possible that you feel sad, lost, confused, stunned, or possibly even angered or overwhelmed by the loss of a loved one or friend. 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 should turn to find comfort, love and a caring heart to help bear the pain and grief you feel.
At Transfiguration Lutheran Church, we are committed to helping people through their time of loss. Pastor Ed Treat or Pastor Arthur Murray help plan the funeral for a loved one, meeting with the family of the deceased, consoling and planning the funeral liturgy. The TLC Funeral Coordinator will meet with the family to arrange a visitation at TLC one hour prior to the service, if desired, and will help plan a luncheon following the service, assisted by the TLC Funeral Luncheon Team or a recommended caterer. She will also work with your funeral home or cremation society taking care of details of the funeral or memorial service.
In addition, all TLC funerals provide live-stream coverage and accessed for viewing via the TLC website. After the service (within 24 hours) all elements of the service (bulletin, video memorial, live-stream recording, photographs, etc.) are available for viewing on this website, TLC Memorial Garden -- archived forever.
