"For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s." Romans 14:7-8 NKJV

A funeral is a worship service in which the body of the deceased lies in the casket. The service takes place to praise God for that person’s life and service.  A memorial service is a worship service, and the body may have been cremated or buried privately. Pictures or a portrait may be placed near the chancel steps.
