Funerals & Memorials

The service on the occasion of death ordinarily should be held in the usual place of worship in order to join this service to the community’s continuing life and witness to the resurrection. The service shall be under the direction of the pastor. Others may be invited to participate as leaders in the service at the discretion of the pastor. -- From the Directory For Worship of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

If you have experienced the death of a loved one, please call the church office at the time of death, and the pastors and staff will guide you through the funeral planning process. The pastors along with the director of music will also walk you through the form and order of the service.

As you consider burial or cremation, please keep in mind that Red Clay has a beautiful memory garden in addition to its historic cemetery.
