Celebrations of Life

In times of loss, First Baptist Church of Greater Cleveland is ready to help families remember and honor their loved ones with a funeral or memorial service. The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult experience we face in life. The pain and bewilderment that accompanies such loss can be all consuming. If ever there was a time when the support of a faith community is helpful, the death of a loved one is one of those times. The First Baptist Church, its members, and staff, are part of the network of support surrounding you and your family in the midst of grief. There are many ways we can help you, both at the time of death and in the months that follow.

  • We can help you plan and conduct a funeral or memorial service.
  • We can provide pastoral care immediately following the death of a loved one.
  • We can provide longer-term grief support with a trained Stephen Minister

The Columbarium at First Baptist Church is a beautiful sacred space dedicated to the interment of the ashes of loved ones.  Recently completed, the Columbarium contains 150 niches, each capable of holding two urns.  The woodwork, the artwork by Kathy Mead Skerritt and the design of the Columbarium all work together to make it a place of beauty and quiet.  For more information about the Columbarium please use our contact form or call the church office.
