Free Funeral Sermons For Non-Christians

If you are a pastor, then you will be expected to take funeral services and memorial services. Generally speaking, funeral services or memorial services are unexpected. Also, some of the funeral services or memorial services will be for non-Christians.

If someone dies unexpectedly and you are asked to take the funeral service, then you will need to work quickly to prepare yourself and the funeral service. One of the best ways to do this is to compile funeral resources so that they are at your fingertips when needed.

Funeral Service Resources

Free Funeral Sermons For Non-Christians

Over the years I have compiled many funeral sermons, funeral poems, quotations and readings, funeral handbooks and other material to help me prepare for funeral services and funeral sermons when the unexpected happens.

One of the most important resources I have is a Funeral Details Form. This form I have tweaked over the years in order to gather all the information I need concerning the deceased person and their family. Having this information at my fingertips allows me to prepare funeral services and funeral sermons with relative ease.

Another important resource is my collection of funeral sermons. These funeral sermons give me ideas and thoughts when it comes to preparing the message at the funeral service or memorial service.

I also have a collection of funeral poems, quotations and readings to help me put together funeral services. Sometimes, a poem, quotation or reading say exactly what you want to say and people often relate to them in the service.

I have also gathered a number of funeral handbooks to help me in the process of crafting a funeral service.

Free Funeral Sermons For Non-Christians

I have made available two free funeral sermons – one funeral sermon is for a non-Christian and the other funeral sermon is for a Christian.

I was asked by a non-Christian family to take the funeral service for their mother. They requested that I share the main message around their mother’s favourite poem. I accepted their request and put together a funeral sermon that was sensitive and well-received.

I was asked by a Christian to take his funeral when he died of cancer. He wanted me to give a succinct message about eternal life. He knew where he was going when he died and he wanted those who attended his funeral service to know how they too could be sure that they were going to heaven when their life on this earth was over. Again I accepted his request and put together a short message relating to heaven.
