Recreating the Rainbow Bridge: New to this year's service will be the opportunity for people to remember and recognize cherished pets that are no longer with them. Brightly-painted rocks, created by the children of the church, will be available for people to write the names on of past pets. Then, the rocks may be placed under a “Rainbow Bridge” for the event. After the service, the recognition rocks will be relocated to a permanent memorial site on the church property. As is the tradition with the event, each pet will receive their own personal blessing. Rev. Merriam Alexander, the dog mother to two Boston Terriers, will lead the service and offer the individual blessings. Special messages, prayers and readings will be shared during the service. A free-will love offering called the “Dog Bowl Donation” will be collected during the service to benefit the New Hope program at Blue Ridge Humane Society. People may also contribute dry pet food.
