Ninth Annual Service of Remembrance
The wellness ministry of Lincoln Christian Church, 204 N.
McLean St in Lincoln, will host the Ninth Annual Service of
Remembrance on Sunday, November 4, 2012, at 3:00
p.m. in the church sanctuary.
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. Everyone is
invited to attend and participate in this service of memory
and honor for loved ones.
We invite those who have lost loves ones during the past
year to submit a photo of your loved one by
October 22 in order to be included in the pictures
displayed in a power point presentation during the service.
You can bring or mail the photo to the Lincoln Christian
Church office, where it will be scanned and returned to
you. Or, if you have a digital photo, you can send it
directly, via email, to
The wellness ministry team will host a time of fellowship
following the service.
