The death of a family member is a painful time, in which we “share one another’s burden,” and a joyous time in which we celebrate the assurance of eternal life.

The Pastoral Care office and the Worship Department work together to coordinate funeral details. We encourage Truro members and their families to conduct these services at Truro. For that reason, we advise people to contact the Pastoral Care office before making arrangements for a funeral at Truro with a funeral director.

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. —I Corinthians 15:20–22
