A memorial service has been scheduled to honor a youth and worship pastor who was killed Monday when a drunken driver struck his car in Pacific.

The public is invited to the service for 24-year-old Samuel Stephens. It will be held at 5 p.m. Friday at Church of All Nations, 111 112th Street East, Tacoma.

Stephens had just taken his sister and brother-in-law home after picking them up from the airport when a drunken driver crossed into his lane and struck his car about 2 a.m. Monday.

A worship pastor for four years at EastPointe Church in Bonney Lake, Stephens was poised to be married in less than two weeks.
