The Prince family asks that attendance for the funeral be limited to family and close friends, the spokesperson said.
Those attending are asked to be seated at the church by 11:40 a.m. Parking will be at the church, and overflow parking will be at North Gwinnett High.
"Mike, Tara and Ryan Prince continue to be overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of love and concern for their family since the loss of their beloved sons and brothers, Jake and Griffin, in a tragic boating accident on Lake Lanier," the statement says.
"The thousands of expressions of grief and concern carried them through the long days of the search for Griffin and will continue to lift them as they say their farewell on Tuesday," the statement says.
Members of law enforcement, which aided in the nine-day search for Griffin Prince's body, also are expected to attend.
Griffin Prince, 13, and Jake Prince, 9, were killed June 18. They were aboard a pontoon boat being piloted by their father when another boat crashed into the Princes' boat late at night. The driver of the other boat, Paul J. Bennett, has been charged with boating under the influence.
The body of Griffin Prince was recovered last week after a nine-day search of the lake.
Griffin was a student at Lanier Middle School in Sugar Hill. Jake was a student at White Oak Elementary in Sugar Hill.
The family will have a private burial for the youths. The Prince family, who operated the Grass Shack boating business near Lake Lanier, were of the Mormon faith. One Suwanee Police officer, Wes Edwards, was an uncle of the Prince youths.
