A good place to start is to refer to the Funeral Service from pages 278-281 in the hymnal, Lutheran Service Book.  A Lutheran funeral service will be based upon this form or a close adaptation of it.
St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church makes a funeral pall available for your use.  A funeral pall is a large white cloth with a cross embroidered in the middle that is placed over the casket as it is brought into the sanctuary at the beginning of the funeral service.  The pall symbolizes the gifts of the Holy Spirit and eternal benefits given to this child of God at Baptism.  “In Holy Baptism _______ was clothed with the robe of Christ’s righteousness that covered all his/her sin” (LSB, pg. 278)
The Word of God recorded in Holy Scripture will be read at your funeral service.  A Psalm, Old Testament, Epistle, and Gospel passages will be selected, which are appropriate to declare the praise of Him Who has given us victory over sin and death, Jesus Christ the Lord.  The Pastor welcomes suggestions such as confirmation verses and/or favorite Bible texts.

Old Testament:  __________________________
Epistle:  _________________________________
Gospel:  _________________________________
Lutheran Service Book also provides many hymns which proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His saving death and resurrection for us.  Two or three hymns are normally selected to be sung by the congregation.  (Please see the following page for suggestions of hymns that are appropriate for the time of the funeral of a Christian.)

Recessional Hymn:  ________________________________________
A Lutheran pastor is thankful to the Lord at the time of a funeral for the life of a confessing Christian (“… be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” Revelation 2:10) However, the faithful pastor will always draw the focus, for the benefit of those gathered, to Jesus Christ Whom we worship, and His grace alone that is sufficient for us, even for the eternal life of all who believe in Him.  “Thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:57).
