July Events

  • An Evening of Hope & Encouragement with Author & Speaker, Debbie L. Mayer

    Sunday, July 15, 2018 : 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

    Join us for a very special evening at Crossroads Church of Hastings with Twin Cities author and speaker, Debbie L. Mayer. Debbie shares her story about the loss of her three daughters, and how God came to her in her brokenness during and after her storm. The truths she speaks of will invite you into that place of intimacy with Christ, where you can find true freedom.

    Debbie is an inspirational speaker and author of the book, After the Crash. She is passionate about bringing others into an eternal perspective with the redeeming power of God’s love in her story. Debbie and her husband, Joe, lost their three daughters on New Year’s Day of 2004 when they were killed in a car crash on the way to be bridesmaids in their older brother, Joey’s wedding. Debbie has found that her lasting healing is only through intimacy with Christ. God touched Debbie and Joe in their brokenness, guiding them forward, continuing to heal their shattered hearts through the power of the word of God. Debbie shares these truths, principles, and songs with all in attendance at this special evening in Hastings, MN.

    Debbie is passionate about the power of sharing our stories. She knows that by hearing someone else’s story, we are better able to identify our own struggles and victories. Both hope and courage may be gained as we listen and learn from each other’s experiences. Debbie believes that the key antidote for any broken heart or shattered dream is the love of God. Our understanding is limited, but our trusting in God’s love is limitless. Her desire is that she may inspire you to embrace your own story.

    Come and share this very special evening of hope, healing, and community. Debbie will enlighten and inspire us all, whether we are experiencing loss or trying to support those around us.

    This event is sponsored by Wise Family Funeral Home & Crematory, in collaboration with Crossroads Church Hastings. Doors open at 6 pm, Debbie L. Mayer will speak at 6:30 pm. Light refreshments served, along with a book signing, will follow the program.

August Events

  • Tiny Truths - Learning How Our Words Have Power in the Healing Journey

    Thursday, August 9, 2018 : 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

    Words can be life-giving and restorative. When we surround ourselves with the right words, our outlook on life changes. Laura Stanley, a local artist, and owner of LoLo Lettering is bringing joy, offering truth, extending grace and affirming love through hand-lettered art. She will facilitate an interactive and reflective night focused on the power of words. As a participant, you will paint your own “Tiny Truth” (a 3 1/2 x 9-inch board) to bring home as a constant reminder of the words you need in your journey of healing.

    This special evening is sponsored by Wise Family Funeral & Cremation Services. The Wise Family is passionate about caring for the living while honoring loved ones. Aftercare programming is one of the many ways we do that. We hope you will consider joining us. Workshops and events are offered free of charge from the team at Wise Family Funeral Home. Our goal is to serve others and add value to those around us. We get asked about how to make payment and our reply is that we would love for you to pay it forward to the people and organizations around you. You can and do make a difference!
