A Service of Remembrance and Hope Despite Infertility and Loss at Kennesaw UMC, October 12, 6PM
The In Between Place Service is done in recognition of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Week. We will remember, mourn, and celebrate our children gone too soon, our empty wombs, and our empty arms. Our service will give us space to grieve and space to hope. There are no easy answers, but sometimes just recognizing our pain, coming together in our grief, and looking to our God who promises to wipe away every tear and carry every burden, gives us hope. Know a family struggling with infertility? A woman who has miscarried? A couple who had to bury a baby too soon? Grandparents who struggle to coupe with empty arms? Invite them to our service. May we all remember and be changed by remembering. Location: 1801 Ben King Road, Kennesaw, GA 30144
