When a death occurs, the Green’s Farms Church pastoral care team is there to help families cope with the loss of a loved one. Notification of the death of a family member or friend to either a minister or the church office at (203) 227-2728 will enable the church to respond helpfully.
For centuries Christians have faced death by affirming the hope of the gospel with both tears and joy. GFC clergy works directly with family members to plan an appropriate worship service of remembrance and thanksgiving as a witness to the resurrection and the power of God’s love.
Receptions at Green’s Farms Church
Members of the GFC congregation may also use the church facilities at no charge for a reception following the service.
If the family prefers a simple reception of cookies and hot or cold beverages, the Deacons will work with a close friend or family member to arrange one. If instead family members prefer an onsite reception with more extensive food offerings, they may engage the church’s caterer to design a reception that is right for them. In that case, Deacons will provide the family with the caterer’s contact information.
Non-members may also use GFC’s facilities for simple memorial receptions at a charge of $175.00 for the parlor and $350.00 for the social hall. The church’s professional caterer is also available for hire by non-members who prefer a catered event.
