–from Pastor Steve

This Sunday we will celebrate All-Saints Day. November 1 is the official day. Who are the saints in your life? I don’t mean — who are the perfect people in your life? I mean who have been the ones to influence you for good? You know what they say — “Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.”

This Sunday we will have a special table set up to remember those who have died. The ones who impacted our lives. Bring a picture or something that reminds you of a family member or friend who is no longer with you in this life. We will sing, and pray, and share the bread and cup of communion as we give thanks for those who have left us a legacy. As we sing in the great hymn of All-Saints Day — “We feebly struggle, they in glory shine — yet all are one in Thee and all are Thine. Alleluia!”

See you in worship.

Tomorrow, Friday, November 3, we will celebrate the life of Ferne Mammen. The service will be held at 1:30pm with a reception following in the Red Room.



we will celebrate All Saints Day

Our 9:00am service in the Red Room seemed to get off to a good start. The room was full and you could feel the spirit in the room. A nice feeling of closeness. Come a few minutes early and help yourself to a cup of coffee and a pastry. This Sunday we will talk about what it means to leave a legacy with your life. Read Deuteronomy 34: 1 – 12.

On November 5, we will celebrate All Saints Day. Who are the special people in your life who have left a legacy for you? I invite you to bring a picture or some momento of someone you want to remember on this special Sunday.
