Country Peace remembers with lights, charity
Members of Country Peace Presbyterian Church on County Road A in the town of Superior invite the community to a Memorial Tree-lighting Service at 7 p.m. Dec. 8, at the church.
The names of those remembered will be shared as part of the service before the congregation moves outside to illuminate the memorial tree and welcome the Advent season with song and prayer.
Refreshments follow. Through gifts from the Memorial Tree-lighting Project last year, the congregation was able to make sizable donations to the Giving Tree Project to provide gifts to local families in need at Christmas. The funding also supported a weekend food program for homeless and other children in need in Douglas County school districts and provided children at risk quilts and prayer shawls for ailing members and friends.
The congregation reaches outside its parish to support the Seaman's Mission of the Twin Ports and fund Presbyterian Disaster Assistance projects in the US and around the world.
Anyone wishing to participate in the Memorial Tree-lighting Project should contact Kirsten Standen, 6760 E. County Road B, South Range WI 54874, or call 715-399-8998 to acquire their memorial lights by Nov. 29.A sign where all the memorial names appear will be set up in the church through Christmas.
Country Peace is a member of Pioneer Parish, six Presbyterian churches in rural Douglas and Bayfield counties.
