Before the Service

 

Contact the church office to consult with the presiding pastor before setting the date and time of the service. The inclusion of flowers, decorations, photo boards, easels, or other items must be discussed with the pastor ahead of time.

The funeral home also will need to coordinate any necessary details with the pastor.

 

Interment in the Chapel Garden

 

The Chapel Garden serves as a memorial space for the interment of ashes. Interment is available for church members only.

The standard fee is a one-time contribution of $400, which includes an urn and a nameplate for the Memorial Wall.

Plots may be purchased in advance for the standard fee.

If you are interested in arranging for interment, please contact the church office at opendoors@morrowchurch.org or (973) 763-7676.

 

 

Off-Site Services

 

All services held at a funeral home, graveside, or other location must be worked out individually with the presiding pastor. Please call the church office to arrange a meeting to discuss the details.
