The death of a loved one can be a grief-filled and overwhelming time. No matter how old a person has lived, no person is really prepared for the departure of their loved one; it is always still “too soon.” At Cornerstone, we understand and are willing to be of some help to you - whether it be counselling, funeral, or memorial services, we are here for you.

Our pastor is privileged to have helped the families of deceased loved ones as they come with overwhelming pain. He has entered the lives of families in one of their most difficult and sorrowful times when the ache of loss is so profound. He knows it is essential for you and your family members to be listened to, understood, and consoled in a safe and confidential environment.

Our pastor is attentive to the hurt in a person’s heart and will walk you through the funeral preparations. His goal is to ensure that grieving families are accepted and comfortable as he helps them prepare for the funeral of their loved one. He strives to bring compassion, comfort, and support to ensure a funeral is a meaningful, positive, and healing experience.

Please let us know if you believe we can be of assistance to you.

Yes, our pastor is available to assist you by conducting a funeral or memorial service for your loved one. He has experience working with families and funeral homes in coordinating funeral or memorial service logistics. He is present to support, guide, and assist the family in the selection of the readings, and their choice of music and all that a funeral entails including the committal. Usually he handles the religious details, and the funeral home handles the preparation and burial.
