Grace Hosts Over 300 For Turner Funeral Home Community Memorial Service

What an absolute joy it is to serve our community and to have hundreds come to Grace to hear the Word of God and to be encouraged and challenged in this brief vapor of a thing called life.

H.E. Turner Funeral Homes puts on a “Prayer and Memorial Service” each year prior to Christmas for the families who have lost a loved one over the course of the past 12 months. With the opening of our new worship center we have had the privilege to host this service the past two years. It is truly a special time to minister to these families.

A special thanks to the many from Grace who helped park, bake cookies, greet, do the sound, perform special music. It is a joy to see our folks embrace this opportunity to bless so many from our community. Here are some pictures from the event from our local media outlets.
