NOTES FOR FUNERAL FACILITY USE


ARRANGEMENTS

Please contact the church office at 321-259-3454, to let the staff know of your loss. We will set up a time to meet with you to discuss arrangements for the funeral or memorial service. It is expected that a pastor of Church at Viera will preside at the service. Requests for other arrangements must be pre-approved. Once the date and time of the service has been set, please be sure to notify your funeral director with the service information. 

SETTING

The auditorium will accommodate approximately 550 guests and seating is arranged in three sections. Smaller sections may be roped off to give a more intimate setting. A private room is also available for the family if needed. 

MUSIC

Our Pastor of Worship Arts can offer suggestions on music selections and options. Should this service be desired, we can assist you with the arrangements. The use of CD music, pre-recorded accompaniments, or outside musicians may be used. Please make such arrangements in advance as music selections must be approved by Church at Viera and in the spirit of the service. 

FLOWERS & CANDLES

Floral arrangements should be in place one hour before service time. If you would like to use candles during the service, please purchase quality non-drip candles. The church candelabras or pillars may be used upon advanced request. 

PRINTED PROGRAMS

In most circumstances the funeral home will print cards with your loved one’s obituary that may be used for the service. If you would like to have a customized program, please let us know how we may assist you.
