First Baptist Church Morrison Funeral and Burial Arrangements
 
Even for Christians, the death of a loved one is a difficult experience.  A funeral service held in the church is a service of worship, celebrating the deceased's life and the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ.   "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope."  1 Thessalonians 4:13.  It is our desire and privilege to minister to the families of our congregation in their time of need.  "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope."  Romans 15:4.
