ALL SAINTS SUNDAY

For all the Saints who from their labors rest. (ELW 422 v.1)

This Sunday, November 3, on All Saints Sunday, the church remembers, celebrates and gives thanks for the lives of all the saints. This year in worship we will read the names of the saints who have entered the church eternal from our faith community.
In addition, you are invited to enter the name of a saint in your life. The name does not have to be a saint who died this year. The name may be anyone you wish to remember this special day and please feel free to write as many names in the memorial book as you wish.

The memorial book is now available in the gathering area. On All Saints Sunday, the book will be carried into the sanctuary and placed near the Christ Candle.

Oh blest communion fellowship divine, we feebly struggle, they in glory shine. (ELW 422 V.3)
