    Thank you to the many friends of Paul Hammer who have sent us remembrances and condolences. Our Ministry and Counsel Committee is still working on plans for a memorial Meeting for Worship for Paul. We are in contact with others in the community who also want to remember Paul and honor his exceptional gifts and spirit. When plans for a memorial meeting have been confirmed, we will post the information here, and we will email those who have requested information. Please continue to hold Paul's family and close friends in the Light.
