Grieving the Death of Sasher Thaw

Our family of faith is grieving the death of Sasher Thaw. This five-year-old Karen girl was recently resettled in the United States. She died in a tragic accident Thursday evening. Although neither she nor her immediate family regularly gather with us at CHBC, our special relationship with the Karen community in Louisville makes them all a part of the CHBC community.

Visitation will be held in the CHBC Chapel on Monday, June 27, from 4pm - 9pm. The funeral service will take place at 10am on Tuesday, June 28, in the Chapel

If you would like to help cover the funeral costs and support the family during this difficult time, you can do so by making contributions and noting the gift is for the "Sasher Thaw Fund." Cash and check donations can be delivered to the church (2800 Frankfort Ave. Louisville, KY 40206). Or, you can contribute online at:
