Focused on Your Needs
Candlelight Virtual Service

As we celebrate the lives and memories of our departed loved ones, join us for a virtual memorial service of music, light and reflection.  The Candlelight Service will be available for viewing online as of Wednesday, December 8, 2021, at 7:00 PM. The link will be available until January 9, 2022.  Our hope is that this video will bring a sense of comfort.
