Special Sunday this weekend!
November 5, 2021 by Ken Loyer
This Sunday is a special day in the life of our church. The first Sunday in November is widely recognized by Christians as All Saints Sunday. "Saint" in the Biblical sense is a reference to someone who believes in Jesus and pursues the way of Jesus, a person whose life reflects the holy love of God. Think for a moment about the people in your life, now and from over the years, who exemplify Jesus's love. Thank God for them!
During all our worship services this weekend, including online worship, we're going to remember and give thanks for God's faithful people who have gone before us, especially those from our church family who within the last year have entered into eternal rest. Their names will be read and we'll offer a prayer thanking God for the lives and legacies of these people, as well as all God's faithful people, and for the hope we have in Christ and His resurrection. It's going to be a very meaningful time to remember, give thanks, and worship the Lord.
We'll also be recognizing and thanking Veterans, with Veterans Day coming up on November 11. Thank you, Veterans, for your service!
The Lord is working in our church in some exciting ways. There is so much for us to celebrate. We shared this 6-minute video in worship last week, and I encourage you to watch it: Today Lord One Year Update - YouTube.
I hope you'll join us in worship as we continue our "With Grateful Hearts" series and learn how God's message in the book of Philippians can help us live as people of gratitude and joy.
