As we enter the Sabbath hours, we ask that you join us in prayers of comfort for the Lesher family and those close to them in this time of sadness.<br /> <br /> Sincerely,</p> <p> Andrea Luxton<br /> President<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p> <em>Note: A more formal announcement/life sketch will be posted on our website at an appropriate time.</em></p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <strong>Service Information</strong></p> <p> October 7, California:</p> <p> Azure Hills SDA Church, Grand Terrace, CA</p> <p> 4 p.m. service&nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> October 21, Berrien Springs</p> <p> Pioneer Memorial Church</p> <p> 3 p.m. Visitation</p> <p> 4 p.m. Memorial Service, Dwight Nelson delivering the homily</p> <p> This service will be livestreamed by Andrews University.
