FUNERALS

We give thanks for the life that was lived and shared with us. We give praise that the one we have loved is eternally safe in God’s love, which is also our own hope and security.

Roswell United Methodist Church is honored to assist you in celebrating your loved one's life.

Our pastoral staff is here to help you in any way we can during this difficult time of loss. Whether you need a guiding hand in navigating the logistics of pre-planning or care and support in finding your way through the depths of grief, we are here for you.
