The community will gather to remember lost loved ones during holiday season.

Orenco Presbyterian Church in Hillsboro will hold a special "Service of Remembrance" at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, in the sanctuary at 6420 N.E. Oelrich Road.

"For those who have lost loved ones, the holidays can be a very difficult time," said Rachel Stramel, a Cornelius resident and a pastor at the church. "Join us as we remember them and hear a message of hope."

Stramel called the event "a time of reflection open to all." Community members are invited to share the name of loved ones who have passed away in the past year or two by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

"We want to be able to bring people words of comfort and also offer a service where their loved ones will be honored and they will find support as they sit with others going through similar experiences this time of year," Stramel said.

Coffee and cookies will follow the service.
