IT’S ALMOST HERE! Our Annual Candle Lighting Ceremony, will be held on the second Sunday in December, the 12th, at Sugar Creek Presbyterian Church.
Most of you know that this very special event is a world-wide Compassionate Friends memorial service! TCF chapters in every time zone light candles at 7pm so there is an uplifting 24-hour display of candlelight all around the globe for our children, siblings and grandchildren.
A highlight of the evening makes our chapter’s ceremony quite endearing: a slide presentation made up of photos of our loved ones.
Live music by Danny Voris on guitar will begin at 6:30pm. Plan on arriving no later than 6:45 since we will light our chapter candle precisely at 6:59 and begin the program at 7:00 sharp!
More information can be found here: 2021 Candle Lighting
And if you’d like to help with this very special evening of music, readings, the slide presentation and fellowship, let us know by e-mail email@example.com or by phone (937/640-2621) – we would love to have you be part of the planning!
On the last Friday of each month, beginning at 11:30, please join us for a
