 Women’s Fellowship:
Remembrance and Rest
      I love these early Daylight Savings Time evenings.  At about 6:30 the sun has reached that point where everything seems to be bathed in a soft, golden glow. The light feels as though it’s coming from inside each leaf, flower and cloud.  The day is winding down and it’s time for a rest.  Take a moment, go outside and see it for yourself.
  In April, Women’s Fellowship is offering you a very special way to experience this lovely time of day while remembering the beloved folk in our lives who have left us for their eternal rest.  Scott Horton, our church’s former organist, will return at 6:30 on Tuesday, April 17 to lead us in a memorial Evensong service.  As our sanctuary fills with gentle, golden light, we will celebrate in exquisite music and prayer those we love who have gone before.  This is a service designed for our entire church family. Come rest in the Lord’s promise of eternal life and remember those you love. Peace be with you.
