A lot of work goes into making a barn quilt. The congregation was asked to submit quilt ideas and then voted on their favorite. Jan, Mary and Beth got us going and several took their turn at painting. You will have to keep watching for the end result!

We listened to the song (click on the following link to listen to song) “I Can Only Imagine” a single recorded by Christian rock band Mercy Me. Written and composed by lead vocalist Bart Millard.  Such a beautiful song!

Thank you to Mary Zach for planning the service this morning and to everyone who shared photos and precious memories of their loved ones.
