  2. Keeps the memorial book up to date.
  3. If people are interested in giving a memorial for a family member, the committee discusses this with the Senior Pastor and the appropriate boards or committees.
  4. If the family designates what the memorial gift should be used for, and there is money enough for it, the committee sees that it is purchased.
