Funeral & Memorial


Funerals & Memorial Services

Pastoral Care assists families in coordinating and officiating funerals or memorial services following the loss of a loved one. Whether the family decides to use First Baptist facilities or not, we are available to assist in their honoring their loved one.

We help the family secure ministers, music selections, and provide sound/video assistance. We coordinate receptions following the service. Services are held in the Chapel or Worship Center (depending on capacity) and receptions in the Reception Room or larger area if necessary.
