Memorial Services

In memorial services, we gather to give thanks to God for someone’s life, to entrust that person to God’s eternal care, and to acknowledge our grief, no matter how long or how short that life has been. We are supported by the rich strands of our tradition as we engage the mysteries of life and death, trusting that whether we live or we die God is with us.

FPC Memorial Garden

The customs around memorial services and burial practices have changed significantly in recent decades. An increasing number of families are choosing cremation. In light of that fact, a number of years ago the church created a Memorial Garden which has been incorporated into the old church cemetery on Maine Street. In this garden, cremains (ashes) are interred directly into the ground. There are tall granite markers at the edge of the garden on which people’s names are engraved.
