Funeral & Bereavement Ministry
Funerals and Bereavement is handled by a member the Clergy. The Rev. Angela Anderson takes the initial bereavement calls and works with family members and funeral preparation. Appropriate Clergy and staff are called on to attend to the details.
Parishioners are called to make service arrangements well in advance. A two page form is available to be completed and discussed with a Clergy person. A copy of this record is kept on file in the church office.
