Service of Remembrance and Hope – Dec 11

The Service of Remembrance is an annual service held every December to offer people in the church to remember loved one who have passed, especially in the last year.  The service provides a quiet, reflective, and worshipful spirit to those who attend.  The service is open to all people who desire to remember a family member or close friend that still holds a special place in your heart.  The service will begin at 7:00pm in the sanctuary.
