A FESTIVAL FOR ALL SAINTS
The Festival of All Saints will be observed this Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 8:15 A.M and 10:45 A.M. This annual feast day is a celebration of the entire Christian community, living and dead. It recognizes that those who have gone before us in the faith have blazed a trail for us and reminds us that they, too, are in the care of Christ. All Saints Sunday is the celebration of what our ancestors have meant to us, how their lives have enriched ours, and how our communion with one another in the body of Christ reaches even beyond the grave.
Join us this Sunday, as we remember those who can never be separated from us, because they have been forever united to Christ. Since it is our custom to especially remember those who have died since last All Saints Sunday, the following persons will be remembered in our prayers by name:
Sally J. Barber
Charles E. Bower
Eleanor B. Dieffenbach
Marion L. Fischer
Mary L. Hess
Ardis E. Ireland
Margaret B. Kimble
Natalie E. Lilley
M. Kathleen Steinbacher
James A. Stroup
R. Lee Waltz
James D. Wither III
You are blessed to be a blessing.
God loves you . . . serve Him faithfully, serve Him well!
