Funerals and the DPC Cemetery
The funeral service is a time of ‘celebration of’ and ‘comfort for.’ We celebrate the life of the one who has passed, as we remember the good life that has been lived. We offer comfort to family and friends who sorrow over the loss with prayer and hope from scripture. We do not believe life just ends with ceremony and grave. We believe in a God who welcomes all faithful to a kingdom beyond this life and who seeks to comfort those who sorrow until the time of reunion will come. Please contact either pastor if you need to schedule a funeral service.
Our tranquil cemetery is located behind the Sanctuary building. DPC’s major benefactor, Andrew Small, is buried there, as are numerous veterans from wars after the Civil War. It is primarily for the use of church members and their families, and the families of those already buried there.
