Memorial Fund Policy
Epiphany Lutheran Church has adopted this Memorial Fund Policy to provide individuals the opportunity to honor a loved one through designated or undesignated contributions that support the ministries of Epiphany Lutheran Church. Such gifts fulfill mutual needs: the donor finds a meaningful way of expressing his or her gratitude, love and remembrance, and the gift benefits the Church and furthers its mission. Epiphany Lutheran Church is grateful for all gifts regardless of amount. Anonymous memorials are also accepted.
Although funeral services may be held in funeral homes, the best place for conducting a funeral service upon the death of a church member is in the sanctuary of the church to which he or she belonged. We are reminded that God’s promise of eternal life triumphs over death, and the appropriate location to celebrate our baptismal covenant in Christ containing this promise is in Kingsway Schaeffer Memorial Chapel, where Epiphany’s regular worship takes place.
