Rite of Remembrance Our annual celebration this year includes the remembrance of loved ones who are in the nearer presence of God. If you would like to remember one or two people, please list them on a sign-up sheet at the ministry table. Include your name in case we need to confirm spelling. Names this year will be inscribed on ribbons and carried in procession reminding us they we are surrounded by the saints’ in light. Because of the labor involved, we will need to have the names no later than Thursday, October 29. You may also email the names or call them into the office.
