•  REGULAR SUNDAY SERVICES: Sunday services are scheduled the first four weeks of the month, unless
    cancelled and announced in the monthly newsletter. Service begins at 9:30 a.m. Duration of service
    is approximately one hour.

•  MONTHLY MEMORIAL SERVICES:  One Sunday each month will be designated as a time when families
   and friends of the deceased will have the opportunity to observe the passing of a loved one who
   passed away in that particular month.  Instead of a "public" family service, families observing
   "special memorial anniversaries" are encouraged to arrange for a private home or temple service
   with the resident minister.
