Tree of Remembrance
Throughout December, it is with honour that a tree is dedicated to you and your loved ones who have passed away. Please feel free to fill in a Tribute Card, and place it on the tree in the Cafe, in remembrance of your special person. We pray that this tree will be a place to stop and surrender: an opportunity for you to acknowledge your grief, and your loss, and place it in His loving hands. Please see the tree as a safe place to pray, but mostly, to remember.

We thank You that this month we get to celebrate the birth of Your Son who came to make all things new. We pray that as we enter into this busy season, this place would be filled with Your presence and peace. As people come in and out of the building this month for school concerts, special events and services, we pray that You would fill this building with an overwhelming sense of Your presence so that everyone who enters would seek You out.
We pray that Your Holy Spirit would be felt here, and that His power would draw people back to You. We pray that new people would come to know Your salvation this Christmas season. And remind us of the joy of knowing and serving You.
We pray that we would represent You well in all that we do—You have done amazing things for us and we are filled with joy! We trust that as we ask to be aware of Your presence in our midst, we would be changed to live out Your will and proclaim Your glory with joy and peace.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
