NPPBC’s cemetery is located to the side of the church. The date of the first known burial was 1933. Most all graves are marked with only one or two being unmarked infants.
Attentively, we have 2 annual events that involve the cemetery.
- Decoration is scheduled for the first Sunday in May. During decoration, many families attend to decorate their loved one’s markers. Donations are also given to help aid in the maintenance of the grounds.
- The other event is during the first weekend in December, we have a candlelight ceremony. Candles are sold in memory of passed loved ones. They are then placed in the cemetery at each loved one’s marker. This event is organized by our S.H.E. Club and the funds raised help with the ministry’s multiple outreaches. We encourage everyone to come by and remember those that have gone on before us during that time.
We would like to thank Wendell and Vega Willocks Hensley for their hard work in gathering information on our church cemetery. Information they have gathered can be found here:
