Funerals

We at Dennis Union Church are pleased to make our Sanctuary and our staff available to you and your family during this time of sadness. You do not have to be a member of Dennis Union Church to have a Memorial Service in our sanctuary.

We offer these guidelines to help you make some necessary decisions at this time:

Scheduling the use of the Sanctuary: Prior to making any arrangements, please contact the Church office at 508-385-3543 to arrange for a time for the service. This will assure that the Sanctuary and a clergy member will be 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 to make arrangements for the service. During a Memorial Service the urn of ashes may be present, if desired. The service may be scheduled shortly after death or at the convenience of the family.

Music: If you would like organ or piano music at the service, you may make arrangements and plan the music with our Music Director and Organist.

The Service: the 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 Afterwards. If the family would like to have a reception afterwards at Dennis Union Church in the fellowship hall, that may be arranged subject to availability.
