For all of us old enough to remember, we each have a story, a memory or maybe even a personal loss from September 11, 2001. This special service allows us to come together as a community, to pray for all affected by the tragedy of 9/11 and through our continued support for each other, find hope for the future.
Towards the end of the worship service, all attending will be asked to write down a word of hope on a provided bookmark for this church, community, nation, or the world. As you light your candle, say your word loud enough for people around you to hear. Then light the next person’s candle so they may do the same.
