When A Loved One Passes Away - A Helpful Check List


Funeral Services and Family Visitations

At First Presbyterian Church a funeral is a worship service in which we give thanks to God for His providence in the life and death of our loved one, receive His comfort and rejoice in the sure hope that salvation brings the believer upon entering the fullness of eternal life. The church has the following funeral policy in order to help families plan for a service which honors God and serves the needs of the family and friends. Any exceptions to these policies need to be approved by the Worship Committee.
