On December 20 at 6:30 PM in Westmoreland Chapel, we will gather to offer prayers, listen to soul-restoring music, and seek God’s comfort as we remember our sorrows of this past year. Though the Christmas season is often one we connect with hope and joy, it is also an especially difficult season for those who are experiencing the pain of loss. If you wish to remember a loved one who passed away this year or in years past, this service will provide a time and space for peace and consolation. The service offers healing in the form of an opportunity to (if desired) light a candle to memorialize the loss you’ve suffered. Greg Funderburk will also offer a short pastoral message as we acknowledge our grief and seek hope in God’s presence and gracious love. Your presence is encouraged on this special Wednesday evening as you attend ongoing suffering in your life or to provide support and comfort for others.
