On Communion Sunday, members are asked to make a voluntary contribution to aid the distressed and afflicted of our community.  Please consider a gift, using the Deacons’ Fund pew envelopes.

All-Saint’s Banner – Sunday November 2 During the Sunday School/gathering hour on Sunday, November 2, the Worship Commission will create a ribbon-banner for All-Saint’s Sunday.   On this day when we especially remember those in our Congregation who have entered the Church Triumphant in the past year, we invite you to remember those who have been a part of your life by attaching a ribbon to the banner.  You may write their names on the ribbons to name the people of God whose lives have become entangled with yours and  have helped you along the journey of faith.  These may be ancient or contemporary saints, as you will. The banner will be carried into the Sanctuary as a reminder that we are all united in the cloud of saints.
