Service of Remembrance Dec. 20

Even with the joy and song all around us during this season, we recognize that this can be a difficult time for those who are mourning the loss of a loved one, navigating an unwelcome transition, or carrying painful memories – Christmas is often tinged with sadness. And so we invite you to an Advent

in the sanctuary of 
the First Baptist Church of McMinnville
125 SE Cowls Street
