The celebration of All Saints Sunday is a solemn celebration and joyful memory of dear family members and friends who have passed away during the year. We mark their passing and we celebrate all the ways they were present with us in life, and we celebrate our faith that assures us of their eternal rest and peace.
All Saints Sunday
Near the beginning of worship we light a candle for every name our congregation shared and we light one candle for the names on our hearts and the names we do not know. Light a candle or turn on a lamp to extend this ritual into your home.
May their memories be a blessing.
This Sunday is also Communion Sunday. Rev. Martha and I celebrated communion together in the sanctuary for the first time since March 1. We hope you will gather bread of any kind and cup of any kind and join in this celebration of the sacrament of communion. My own experience of communion is that I feel I am in communion with anyone with whom I have ever shared this sacred meal. Invite their memories into you heart and mind as you gather around bread and cup.
A very special gift in this worship service comes to us in an anthem from our amazing choir. (And listen closely, too, for the voices on the opening hymn For All the Saints.)
Enjoy worship and then join our Zoom fellowship after worship at about 10:30 a.m.
In prayer and care,
