Funerals & Memorial Services

We know that planning the details of a funeral can be overwhelming, and we would like to assist you in any way we can. We hope that this information will be helpful to you.

As Christians, we grieve as those who have a unique hope in the Risen Christ, thus empowering us to mark the occasion of death as a time in which the hope of the Gospel is reaffirmed with joy and peace. A United Methodist Service of Death and Resurrection acknowledges this hope and offers family and friends the opportunity to remember a loved one’s life and offer them into God’s care. The service should be a time to celebrate the wonderful gift God gave to us in our relationship with the deceased.

The adequate planned service can be a benediction and a comfort to us, as well as a witness to our faith. Please know we are here for you and welcome the opportunity to assist you and your family.

We've created a planning guide to help make this process easier to utilize it click the button below. If you have questions regarding Funeral and Memorial Service planning, please contact the church office at (850) 862-4169 or

Frequently Asked Questions

who will officiate?

Pastoral ethics require the TUMC pastor to conduct all funeral services held at the church unless another pastor is invited to share in the funeral or act on behalf of the pastor of TUMC

Any requests for another pastor or lay person to officiate or assist in the service must be approved by FUMC Enid's pastor.

Structure of the Funeral Service

To honor the life of your loved one, our pastor will work with your family to plan a memorial service. A basic service includes:

Greetings and Words of Grace

Opening Prayer



Lord's Prayer

Psalm/Scripture Readings

Homily by Pastor

Eulogies by Family and/or Friends


Dismissal with Blessing

Is there a cost associate with a funeral service?

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of grief and loss. We want to work with you to make this service a true celebration of life. Our contracts with employees can not cover funerals in that we never know how many we will perform in a year. Therefore, in some cases, it is necessary to provide these services for honoraria. Please review our Funeral Planning Guide for more information or contact the church office at (850) 862-4169.
