Those of the Christian Faith in Arden, NC who choose cremation trust the knowledge and experience of Groce Funeral Home. We're the area’s cremation experts. Our funeral home has been selected to be the exclusive provider for the Christian Burial & Cremation Society in Arden, NC because we work with clergy from all Christian denominations and we have close ties with local churches representing all Christian Faiths.
The casketed bodily remains are honored by being brought to the Church. This is the most important part of the celebration of the Christian Funeral. If you are not affiliated with a church, a priest or minister representing your Christian Faith will be invited by Groce Funeral Home to lead a Christian Funeral Service at the funeral home chapel.
In Arden, NC, when cremation takes place before the Funeral Liturgy, the cremated remains which have been placed in a worthy vessel are brought to church and set upon a pedestal. A candle is positioned near the pedestal. The Prayers after Death and the Vigil for the Deceased may be adapted as necessary and appropriate and used before the Funeral Liturgy. The Rite of Committal with Final Commendation may also be celebrated at that time.
