Worship Service: "Where do we come from?" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, October 30, 10:00 AM

Day of the Dead provides a occasion to celebrate the lives of those who came before. In keeping this connection alive, we stand a better chance of knowing who we are and where we are going. In today's service, we not only remember those who gave us life: we bring them into the present moment. You are invited to bring a photograph, symbol or token of a family member or close friend, someone who is still with you in blessed memory.
