Long ago when the church was the center of the community so was the church cemetery. Many of our congregations have old historic cemeteries that need lawn care, landscaping, monument maintenance and other structure care. Many are still “active” cemeteries.

Got Questions?

What do we do about our cemeteries moving into the future? What is required by New Jersey State Law? What are the rules and laws about cemetery funds and bequests? Should there be a cemetery association or a congregational committee? What should be our policy? Can we change our outdated policy? Who has oversight?

Consultations

Paul will be available following the workshop for brief consultations with your team about specific topics of concern about your church cemetery issues and questions.

Please indicate when registering that you would like a brief consultation time.
