White Stone Ceremony

As we begin the New Year, we take time to choose the quality – the essence – that Spirit is calling us to be and express. Join guest speaker Rev. Ginny Roll at the 9:00am and/or 11:00am service for a special White Stone Ceremony where we claim our “New Name” (and new way of being for the year) as promised in Revelation 2:17.

Compassionate Friends Candle Lighting

Join us on Sunday, December 9, 2018, at 6:00pm for the 22nd Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting. This is a very special and moving event, which unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon.

During the memorial, there will be time to share a special song, poem, or memory, plus memory tables to share picture(s) and mementos of your loved one(s). Light refreshments follow the memorial (please bring a favorite dish, snack, or dessert in memory of your loved one). Parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members and friends are all welcome to participate. Our service is nondenominational and open to the public.
