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.

The Columbarium at IPC

The Columbarium serves as a reminder to all of the Christian belief in the community of saints, both the living and the dead. The Columbarium at Independent Presbyterian Church provides for church members and ministers of the church, as well as their immediate families who choose cremation, a place near the center of the church grounds for the permanent safekeeping of the ashes of cremation. For more information, contact Marsha Harbin (205) 933-3715.
