For all the saints, who from their labors rest…
November brings us to a season of thanksgiving, and we are surely thankful for all the “saints” of this congregation and throughout our extended families who have gone on to their heavenly homes in the past year.
On Sunday, November 6 we will celebrate All Saints’ Day in worship, remembering especially Marjorie Crowl, Carol Houston, Bob Nickel, Ginny Nixon, Alan Russell, and Beverly Wood.
We have reached out to surviving family members, inviting them to participate in this special celebration. We are looking for a picture or two of each deceased member to project during the worship service. As those photos are projected, we will join in prayer for all the saints and remember each name. As the names are read, a family member or friend will come forward to light a candle for each one. Following the recognition of all our members, others will be invited to come forward and light a candle for a friend or family member they have lost in the last year as well.
We remember and give thanks for all those who have gone before us to show us the way—don’t miss this special worship experience.
