When a loved one dies, those grieving often need assistance in planning a funeral or memorial service. Care Ministries at Church of the Servant can provide that assistance in a comforting and efficient way.

First, decide one person who will be the family contact to help coordinate the service. That person should then contact Vicki Roberds, Coordinator of Care Ministries. Her direct phone line is (405)728-4738. She is available from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. After hours or on weekends, please call (405)721-4141. You will be directed to an emergency line to contact a pastor on call, who can help you reach Vicki.

Vicki will kindly and efficiently guide you through the process of planning the service, including choosing a date, contacting the pastor of your choice, those who can help you with music, and any other matters concerning the service.

We can also provide you with the names of some very fine funeral homes, if you need that information. The funeral home you choose will also help you with other aspects of the service.

After the Service Is Over

After the service is over, you may feel the need for ongoing support as you continue to grieve the loss of your loved one. Church of the Servant has a Grief Support Group that can accompany you during this healing process. It can offer community, understanding, support, and encouragement; and they will extend open and loving arms of welcome to you.

Just know that we are here to help make this journey more bearable and a day of comfort and peacefulness. We want you and your loved ones to experience the love of Christ in action, so please let us know how we can serve you.
