Seventh Annual Service of Remembrance

Lincoln Christian Church will host the Seventh Annual Service of Remembrance on
Sunday, November 7, 2010, at 4:00 p.m. in the Church Sanctuary at 204 North

McLean Street, Lincoln, IL. The purpose in providing this yearly gathering is threefold:

to celebrate Godís gift of life and to worship Him for it; to honor the lives of loved ones
who have died, particularly during the past year; and to provide a corporate opportunity
for loved ones to process, express and heal from their grief. A special part of the
service will be a time when each person who has died will be named individually and a
candle will be lit in his or her memory and honor. A devotional will be brought by Dr.
Paul Boatman, Seminary Dean at Lincoln Christian University, during the service.
Music will be coordinated and led by Laurin Hill, Minister of Worship at the Church.

Members of the Wellness Ministry Team will also take part in leading the service. A
reception will be held after the service in the Fireside Room at the Church.


The service is open to the public, and everyone is invited to attend. If anyone would like
to have a loved one recognized during the service, the name of the person and a photo
can be sent to remember@lincolnchristianchurch.org or delivered to the church office
prior to November 1.

The Salvation Army will be providing a congregate meal on Thanksgiving Day, at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Limit Street in east Lincoln.  In collaboration with the staff of the Oasis Senior Center, The Salvation Army will seat 300 people for this holiday meal, reaching out especially to seniors, grandparents caring for grandchildren, veterans, physically and mentally disabled adults and single parents unable to be with other family members for the Thanksgiving Holiday.   We are looking forward to serving many who would otherwise be home alone, unable to celebrate the holiday with others.
Doors will open for diners at 12:30 pm and the meal will be served at 1:00 pm.  

There are multiple opportunities for volunteers to serve for 2-3 hour shifts in setup and meal preparation on Thanksgiving morning, as well as for the mid-day meal service and later for cleanup (2:30-4:00 pm).   Members of the community (this may be individuals, families or small groups) interested in volunteering on Thanksgiving Day are encouraged to contact The Salvation Army at (217) 732-7890.


New Beginnings Thrift Shoppe is partnering with Fresh Start Ministries here in Lincoln to raise money to help in needy families purchase food for Thanksgiving this year. I have attached information on the event and both ministries. The event starts the 25th of October.

If you have any questions you can stop by the shop or call 217 737 9934.
