Remembrance Book We will celebrate All Saints on November 1st and 2nd. On this day, we celebrate the whole people of God, living and dead. We remember those who have died in the faith who now serve God around the heavenly throne. A “Book of the Dead” stands near the baptismal font on these weeks leading toward All Saints to allow us to write the names of those baptized friends and loved ones we wish to remember in prayer, who now rest from their labors. Remember…..next Sunday we will be going to our fall schedule with services on at 8:30am and 11am. The Saturday service begins at the same time 5pm. A second reminder – Daylight Savings time ends.
