Family Memorial Gifts:

We have been so edified by the faith of our families - in their love and commitment through war, depression and great hardships.  It is our hope that these families will be honored and remembered through the memorial gifts of their descendants! 


We are inviting families to join together in leaving a lasting named memorial in this church of our roots.  Memorials over $1,500 will be listed on a plaque in the church and all memorials will be listed in a booklet to be published.  

We received a beautiful note with a recent donation in which the writer noted that:

We are forever grateful to our parents

and all our extended family

for their sacrificial gifts of love and faith

that transcends time and space. 

We are happy and thankful to do our small part to

“Embrace our Blessings and Ensure our Future”. 

Thus far, we have had many who have established family memorials.  There are others who have made donations but have not yet determined how their memorial will be listed.  We hope that the following list may be an inspiration for those unsure how to dedicate/name a memorial:
