Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Matthew 5:4




When there is a funeral service held at Murphysboro United Methodist Church, there is a private space set up where the family and friends may go for refreshments and a quiet place to rest. There are greeters at each door and others to help seat those attending the service.


Funeral Dinners

Murphysboro United Methodist Church volunteers provide comfort and hospitality to the bereaved by preparing and serving funeral dinners for those who request it. Members of the congregation prepare and bring food to be served at the funeral dinners. Meals are served in the Fellowship Hall.
