As the coffin enters the church, the minister meets the coffin at the door and leads it through, with close members of the family following, all the other mourners will already have found their seats inside the church.
the minister repeats the scriptures as he walks slowly in front of the coffin.
John 11:25-26 (New King James Version)
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
Romans 8:38-39 (King James Version)
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Funeral Prayers

service moves from greeting the mourners, to remembering the one who has died all the while asking for God's comfort and then committing your loved one into God's care.
Entry of the coffin
Traditionally, the minister meets the coffin at the door and leads it and the mourners in. The minister will say some reassuring words from the Bible, for example:
'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies,' says the Lord (John 11:25).
'For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.' (Romans 8:38+9)
'Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.' (Matthew 5:4).
