Honoring the Life of Pastor James L. Upchurch
Preacher Funeral Arrangement 10x14

Our wonderful Preacher of 53 years, James L. Upchurch, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 17th, 2019. The funeral service was held on Friday, March 22 at 12:30pm. It was a victorious service praising God for the life and legacy of a godly Pastor, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Brother, Friend, and so much more.

Our hearts are broken because of our love for this great man of God, but we are comforted by knowing we will see him again one day. Please lift up Preacher’s wife, Rennie, his children, and all the family to the Lord for comfort during this time.
