Dates vary, volunteers are always welcome for both building services and prayer/devotional leadership. Information available in the church office. See www.habitatboonecounty.org for more details.

They are offered by our congregation as an act of pastoral care and God’s comfort during a time of profound sadness and loss for the families.

Jacob entered this world prematurely on September 5, 2015 and returned to the Lord the same day.
