Events at Peace UCC
In Loving Memory of George H. Bartling
Peace Church is saddened by the passing of our dear friend and brother in Christ, George Bartling, on July 8, 2020. George served as our board chair for many years, on our finance committee, as the chair of our capital campaign in 2012 and in our most recent Casting the Vision campaign. He embodied what discipleship and servanthood are. We will miss him profoundly. Due to the restraints of gathering in person due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to celebrate George's life together in our sanctuary. Instead, we will have the Memorial Service with just George's family and a few of their close friends, and we will Livestream the service here on our website at 1:00 p.m. on July 28, 2020.
Soon, you will see the link which will be able to connect you to that live stream on that day. After July 28th, the video of the memorial will be moved over to Peace UCC's YouTube channel, where you can watch it if you are unable on the 28th. We will have someone working at the church beginning at noon on July 28th to assist with any computer or technical questions you have if you cannot get on-line or are uncertain of how to connect. So please call us at (260) 432-8290 anytime afternoon on 7/28 to assist you.
And one more additional thing. As a way to offer our support to the family and in gratitude of George's life. If you live near the church, you are welcome to drive over to the church parking lot at 2:00 (or if you are live streaming when you hear the benediction finished), we will be gathering INSIDE our cars to turn our lights on and create a pathway for Linn to drive through. There will be parking lot attendants who will show you where to park. It is a simple way of letting Linn and family know that we stand with them, even if we cannot all be in the same place during the Memorial Service. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Christen at (260) 579-5128.
