You will need to check with the Minister who is officiating to arrange the time and date of the service, and set up a time to meet to discuss service details. The officiating Minister and his Ministry Assistant will be the point people for all details of the service.

Available upon request:

1. Officiating Minister
2. Soloist & Pianist
3. A/V tech to run sound and play any slide show, remembrance video, song lyrics, and or CD music you would like included in the service

  • Slide show/video needs to be in a Mac file type (.mov, .mp4, .m4v, or .avi) and it needs to be provided to the church 1 day in advance so we can be sure it works correctly.
  • We can make an audio recording of the service if you would like one

4. Bereavement Meal – if the funeral service is scheduled between 10:00 am — 2:00 pm, the church provides a bereavement meal for family members.

There is no cost for church members, however any donation to the ministry of Central Baptist Church will be accepted.
