Candle Burning Ministry

The United Women in Faith is sponsoring a Candle Burning in 2023 for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparents’ Day and All Saints’ Day to raise funds for missions. The Candle Burning is in honor or memory of special people in our lives. After reaching our annual Candle Burning budget amount for missions, proceeds will go to the Building Our Future campaign. The forms to make a donation in honor or memory of a special person on these days are linked below. Lists of Memorials and Honorees will be added after each special day has arrived.
