Annual Memorial Service Sunday, June 24th 2018 at the 10:30 service.

Posted 6/12/2018

Our annual memorial service will be on Sunday, June 24th at 10:30 am. The service will be held in the Capernaum Community Center located at River Pines in Altoona.   

The service includes prayer, reading of Holy Scripture, a poem The Beautiful Bouquet, and responsive reading of We Remember Them, from the Reformed Judaism Prayer Book. The names of those who have passed are read, if a family member is present, they are invited to share a memory and select a flower to create a bouquet. When there is not family present a member of the staff selects a flower for the bouquet. We have a harpist provide music at this time. 

This event is a great time to remember those we have lost and celebrate their lives and the memories we have with them.

Refreshments and fellowship will follow the service.
