Rev. Anderson is known for her powerful messages. Her message for this year’s Memorial Service is “This is not the end of the story.” She will use the First Corinthians 15:50-57 scripture as the foundation for her message. She recognizes that grief stings and it is a process that never ends, but changes. She wants people to understand that despite the pain of death, there is hope in the resurrection. Death is not the end of the story,
