Funerals and Important Decisions
As a loved one nears physical death or dies unexpectedly, family members must make difficult decisions regarding a funeral. Elmbrook’s Congregational Care ministry makes helpful resources available in order to decrease the anxiety and confusion often associated with these decisions. For funeral assistance or to report the death of a member of the congregation, contact Doug Schoen at 262.796.5745 (church office), or 414.916.5745 (cell), or call the church receptionist at 262.786.7051.
The following books have been recommended by Doug Schoen, Associate Pastor of Congregational Care, for those dealing with the loss of a loved one.
- When Will I Stop Hurting? by June Cerza Kolf
- Grieving a Suicide by Albert Y. Hsu
- I’ll Hold You in Heaven by Jack Hayford (on mourning a child)
