Funeral Services

"Whosoever believeth in me shall never die."   John 3:16
A GUIDE TO FUNERAL PLANNING AT IPC Death can be a difficult subject for one to consider; it may be even more difficult to discuss with our loved ones. However, planning for what is inevitable for all human beings can be not only a significant spiritual experience for you, but also a gift of love for your family and friends. To assist with handling this challenging task for families, the Congregational Care and Counseling Ministry has prepared a booklet, A Guide to Funeral Planning at IPC.   Printed copies of the booklet are available for IPC members, and a PDF version can be found here:
