Services at 9 and 10:30 AM. Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is an ancient festival from Central America. It comes to us primarily from Guatemala, Mexico and Nicaragua. Celebrating Dia de los Muertos gives us a chance to play around death, to talk about it and whether we believe our ancestors actually roam the earth or not on this day. Honoring those who have lived before us offers opportunities to remember that life just as we hope someone will remember that we lived some day.
