Vision Statement

The “Memory Tree of Lights” is a ministry which focuses on the Christmas holiday season and provides comfort, education, intervention and hope to people whose lives have been impacted by the loss of someone to suicide and who are overwhelmed by this loss during the Christmas season.

The “Memory Tree of Lights” strives to:
  • provide a place and method of comfort where survivors can memorialize their departed loved ones lost to suicide,
  • create an opportunity where survivors who implement this ministry can receive the blessings of comfort because of their compassionate and selfless hearts,
  • create an awareness to the general community, medical and political community of this catastrophic epidemic,
  • provide educational and healing resource materials for those contemplating suicide and for those who have lost loved ones to suicide, and
  • to provide a place where youth groups and families can bring others who may need “visual confirmation” of the “finality” and “reality” of suicide, and its affect on those left behind.
We are people who hope to be a blessing in the lives of others even though we, most likely, will be the ones who are blessed. That we should not run from nor ignore the needs of survivors who believe in Jesus Christ, but that we should rally around and address the pain we struggle with, which may over shadow such a sacred and holy celebration as our dear Lord’s birth.
Survivors, who believe in celebrating the Christmas season, finally have an additional choice or place to turn to for comfort. Where we can unite as brothers and sisters who reach out to other people in our search for a newness of joy, comfort, and peace during this holiday season.
May the shadows of our departed loved ones gently yield to the Light of truth and the glorious events surrounding our dear Savior’s birth. He understands the true miracle of forgiveness and unconditional love . . . for it is He who embraces each of one of us and takes upon Himself our excruciating pain and our sorrows.
May our loved ones who rest in our hearts, also rest in peace, and in His loving arms.
