Memorial Services

Westminster supports individuals and families through all of life’s transitions, including the death of a loved one.

The Service of Witness to the Resurrection

Our Christian theology shapes not only our beliefs about death, but also how we celebrate the life of the one who has died. The name of the service on the occasion of death is The Service of Witness to the Resurrection, reflecting our fundamental belief that, in Christ, death has been conquered, and the promise of eternal life is affirmed.

Services are provided for both church members and non-members and can be scheduled by contacting one of Westminster’s pastors or Deb Wagner at 612.332.3421.
