Celebration of Life

At The Father’s House, 1505 East 20th, white crosses for every life lost in Reno County is placed out on the east lawn. Starting Sunday, March 7, we encourage you to drive by, stop and remember the lives lost to the pandemic.

You will also have the option to tie a ribbon to the fence line as they offer a prayer for those lives lost, the loved ones they leave behind, our community, our nation and our world. Each ribbon, a prayer. Each prayer, a remembrance.

Neighbor Helping Neighbor is a campaign to show unity and solidarity in helping all of our neighbors and friends by adhering to the recommended guidelines of the State of Kansas Department of Health & Environment as well as our local Reno County Health Department.
Our hope through this effort is not only to connect residents to information, resources and assistance available to our community.  But to shine a light on the multitude of agencies and individuals working for the health, the safety, the well being of our community.  Throughout this process we have witnessed countless businesses, community leaders, first responders, and individuals come together to share hope with their fellow neighbors.
 As President John F. Kennedy once addressed a nation of people standing on a moment of change for this nation, a moment he described as a beginning, renewal and change.  We dare say that we stand at a similar moment in time.
“The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavour will light our country and all who serve it — and the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.”
As we stand at the doorstep of reopening our community, knowing there are unknowns and uncertainties that lie ahead, we must continue together, to arm ourselves with accurate information, and fill our hearts and our mouths with hope and grace for all those who are serving and being served.  We ask simply that we all continue to be neighbors helping neighbors by adhering to the recommendations being set for before us.  To rise to the the ’same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you.  With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.” (John F. Kennedy)
Together our light shines brighter! #HutchinStrong
