Many people don't want to talk about death, or to think about it. But it's something that we will all face. Death is a part of life. The Christian perspective on life neither denies or minimizes the reality of death; even if we affirm the promise and potential of resurrection life.
It's not macabre or twisted to think about your death, leaving your wishes and desires for a life celebration in your honor after your death. In our community these gatherings are a true celebration: celebrating the ways in which God blessed a particular person and how God blesses us as a community through knowing and walking with that person.
If you’re a member of the CAPC Oakland Community we invite you to fill out the form below to record your desires and wishes for the way in which we as a community might celebrate you, your life, the way we glimpsed God in you and the ways in which God blessed you. Simply fill out the form below, being sure to click SUBMIT when you’re finished, and the form will go digitally to the church office for safe-keeping.
