All Saints Worship
Each time we gather in worship, it is our belief we are surrounded by “all the saints of every time and place who forever sing to the glory of God’s name.”
On one special Sunday a year, we symbolize that great cloud of witnesses in the service through the liturgy for the day, including the procession of the All Saints banner, which has the names of loved ones on ribbons, with bells attached to the ends of them to symbolize the joyful singing in heaven of all the saints.
This year, we will celebrate All Saints on November 4. Join us, that we may lift our voices in thanksgiving for all the saints, who from their labors rest.
