Ending High Funeral Prices

Our Services


We offer the widest variety of service options. We recognize that families today may chose to celebrate the life of their loved one by having a traditional visitation and funeral, a memorial service, or contemporary gathering. Know that it is our commitment to serve families whether your preference is to be at our funeral home, your church, or any place that has special meaning to your family.


Funeral Plans for Northwest Indiana

  • When a Christian dies, it is seen as the end of his or her life on earth. It is at this time, we value the comfort that faith provides us during one of life’s most difficult moments. A church funeral is a celebration of a life lived and a public ceremony for family and community to gather and support each other. Our caring staff will take the time to listen and assist you in creating a personal service that honors and celebrates your loved one. As Christians, most of life’s major events are celebrated in church which is why we started the church funeral plan. 
  • If your preference is cremation, you may be surprised to learn that many funeral homes do not own and operate their own crematory. In those instances, the deceased is transferred to an unknown third party cremation provider. Because we operate our crematory on premises, you can be comforted knowing that your loved one never leaves our care. 

What is a Memorial Service and How is it Created?

    A Memorial Service is a Life Honoring Celebration in which the body of the deceased is not present during the ceremony.  You create this unique service with  a staff member. We guide you through the options available and the options to honoring your loved one. Whether you wish a simple Service, Musical Tribute or Celebration of Life Ceremony, we have the experience to ensure it is executed well and is a life honoring event for you and your family 

    .Because we believe that every life lived is unique and special, your Director will take the time to
    guide your family through a variety of options in making your loved one’s service a life honoring
    tribute.
