“For All The Saints, Who From Their Labors Rest..”
       10:00 am Worship Service

The Festival of All Saints is a celebration of the whole church in heaven and on earth. On this
special Sunday we remember those who have gone before us, have served our Lord, and now
rest from their labors. Names of members who have gone to their eternal rest over the past year
will be added to our All Saints banner. We will also offer an opportunity for the names of loved
ones to be shared in our prayers. As God’s living saints, we will reaffirm the mission to which
God has called us, to share his love throughout the world.

(Reminder that this day is Daylight Savings Time – Turn your clock back one hour)

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 23RD Worship at 7:00pm

Begin your holiday weekend by joining us in giving thanks for all that God has given us.
Thanksgiving is such a great tradition to be with family and friends, tell stories, watch football
and gather around the table for a wonderful meal. We invite you to be with us this Thanksgiving
Eve to share our gratitude in prayer, song, and hearing God’s Word. Let us give thanks by
honoring the source of all our blessings.
