These things are all a part of life here at Redeemer. Please contact us any time with any questions or concerns that you may have.



At Redeemer Lutheran Church, we know how difficult it is to lose a loved one. You are not alone on this journey, we are here to walk with you. We will work closely with you and your family throughout your planning to honor your loved one’s life on Earth as well as their eternal life in Heaven. We’ve included some planning information below, but please reach out to the church office at 509-943-4967 with any questions you may have.


“But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13–14 ESV)

Personalize Your Loved One’s Service

We will set up a family meeting with the Pastor to talk about your loved one and plan their service. Many families enjoy personalizing certain aspects of the service to reflect who their loved one was, things like:

Music selection – incorporating a favorite song, arranging to have their favorite instrument

Bible verses – including Bible verses that were cherished by your loved one


In addition to floral arrangements, families find it comforting to incorporate photos and other personal mementos into their loved one’s visitation. We do our best to accommodate the display of personal items that honor a loved one’s interests, vocation, hobbies or favorite items. Families are also welcome to display photos and photo boards.


We offer several options, in the Parish hall following the service.
