Funerals and Memorial Services

We are pleased to work with you and your family during this time of sadness as we celebrate the life of your family member.  You do not have to be affiliated with the Gaylord United Church of Christ in order to have a service within our church. We offer these guidelines to help you make the necessary decisions at this time:

Scheduling the Use of Our Church

Prior to making any arrangements, please contact the church office at (507) 237-2595 to arrange for a time for the service.  This will assure that the church building and our Pastor are available to meet your needs.

Funeral or Memorial Service?

During a Funeral Service, the casket is present, and the funeral home will contact the church office to make arrangements for the service.

During a Memorial Service, the urn of ashes may be present, if you desire.  The service may be scheduled shortly after death or at the convenience of the family.


Please contact us if you would like organ or piano music at the service.  We can help you make the arrangements, plan the music with our accompanists, and also provide soloists or other musicians, as needed.

The Service

Our Pastor will meet with you to discuss the service and its components, including any specific requests the family might have in terms of readings and speakers.

A Reception

If the family would like to have a reception after the service in the fellowship hall, we can also help you make the arrangements.


The fees for funerals and memorial services are shown below:

Funeral Fees:  $____________
Memorial Service Fees: $____________

Please call us at 507-237-2595 or stop by the church to visit us if you are interested in receiving more information about any of these topics.
