A Reminder…The ‘ Memory Tree’, a touching tradition, of placing the names of loved ones that have passed on, attaching the names to the big spruce tree beside the church has been going on for many years. As Christmas starts to come to mind, the Nazareth Lutheran Church is happy to offer this act of remembrance to everyone. As a community we look forward to seeing the twinkling lights, sparkling ornaments, and the names of those we hold dear, nestled in branches of one of the oldest trees in the community throughout the days and nights leading up to December 25. Should you wish to add the name(s) of your loved ones, a small donation is requested. Cheques may be made out to Nazareth Lutheran Church; and all donations will be eligible for a tax receipt. The names will be read during the Longest Night Service at Nazareth Lutheran, where everyone is welcome. Please contact or mail cheques to, Yvonne Way, Box 12, Site 1, RR 1, Standard Alberta, T0J 3G0 or Carol Callaghan, Box 26, Standard, Alberta, T0J 3G0. The donations collected support community betterment. Thank you for supporting this treasured act of remembrance.
