"In everything we do here at Bacher Funeral Home we desire to glorify God. A person's actions will always outweigh their words and so it is our desire to show the families we serve our sincere compassion and love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is our opportunity; our ministry to serve others in time of need." 
Life Verse: Matthew 16:26

" I am hard pressed between the two, My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better."
Philippians 1:23

"Our purpose at Bacher Funeral Home is to provide the families the compassion, care and attention to detail that is needed during a time of loss. To celebrate the life of the one lost and to make it a positive and meaningful experience." 

"All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever."

I Peter 1:24-25

"Though the loss of a loved one is hard, it is my goal to help assist those in their time of need. We have a God that sees every tear, holds us up every time we go to fall, and understands our sorrow, grief, and fears. Our goal is to be used as vessels to help those grieving through these difficult times in their lives by providing our services and to help make this time as easy on the family as possible." 
"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, 'Do not fear: I will help you."
Isaiah 41:13

Jesus taught His followers that it is a blessing to mourn. This seems counterintuitive; how can those who grieve and mourn be the "blessed" ones? He explained that their blessing comes in the comfort they receive. In the economy of Jesus' Kingdom, the value of comfort outweighs the pain of grief. So His words are true: "Those who mourn are blessed, for they will be comforted."  

I count myself blessed to be a part of that process. I am routinely humbled by the opportunities I have to sit down with those who grieve, weep with them, and offer comfort to them as they mourn.

"Until our Lord returns and tears and death are done away with forever, we at Bacher Funeral Home strive to serve the Lord and the families He gives us to the best of our ability, in their deepest hour of need. It is not just our job, but our ministry." 
Life Verse: Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:  While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

"Our Motto is 'Service is Our Privilege.' It is our privilege to minister to the needs of the families we serve as they say good-bye to a loved one and also to provide information and assistance to families who desire to make pre-arrangements." 
Life Verse: Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
