Wireless hearing devices and large print prayer books are available for services. The ushers can direct you if you need help locating anything. The Sylvan Handley Memorial Fund was established by his family in his honor. Contributions to that fund are intended for major repairs and improvements to the church property. In addition, or as an alternative to altar flowers, it is appropriate to remember or honor loved ones by contributing to that fund. It is also an appropriate alternative for funeral flowers at the death of a loved one.
