On Sunday November 4, we will hold our annual All Saints Day observation. At the end of the sermon at both the 8:00 and 10:30 services, we will read the names of all our church members who have passed away in this last year, play a single chime and light a candle for each one’s memory. Then, as has been our tradition in recent years, everyone will be invited to come forward and light a candle in memory of a lost loved one. At our 9:00 a.m. praise service, we will not read the names of those church members who have died in the last year, but we are inviting worshippers to bring mementos of lost loved ones to help decorate our worship space. During the service we will also light candles for lost loved ones. This candle-lighting service has proven to be an important service in the life of our congregation and hope you can be part of it.
In our Friendship Center on Sunday mornings and in our Connection Café throughout the week, we are using new cups. These are recyclable! We are asking that you please deposit them in the blue recycling tubs. They will be prominently placed in the Friendship Center on Sundays and a small one stands permanently by the coffee bar in the Café. Thanks for your support!
