BCCOG Funeral Policy

Funeral services are designed to meet the needs of the family, and every attempt is made to accommodate the family’s requests.  The Chairman of the Deacon Board will speak with the family regarding the items listed below. Please do not finalize your service date and time without speaking with the Chairman of the Deacon Board.

No funeral services will be conducted at the church when the Pastor or Pastor’s designee is unavailable, or if it conflicts with other previously scheduled church events. Permission to use another minister to conduct the service is granted solely by the Pastor.
