Funerals are conducted as a part of the pastoral ministry at Good Shepherd. We conduct funerals at our facility as well as share in the process with local funeral directors. Good Shepherd also has a Funeral Team Ministry to help families handle the details of the funeral or memorial service held at Good Shepherd.

Arrangements for pastoral participation can be made through our church office by calling (630) 961-9220 or by sending us an email.

Download our Preparing and Planning Resource

This preparation and planning resource is made available to help members of our congregation plan in advance. As difficult as it is to face death and talk about planning ahead with our loved ones, it can be of great benefit to the family and loved ones you leave behind. If you need additional assistance planning ahead, please contact the church via phone or email.
