Sunday, November 9 “All Good Gifts”—2015 Annual Stewardship Campaign

This year’s annual campaign is designed to help us reflect on the gifts we receive and the gifts we have to offer. As we launch the campaign, your vestry invites your participation in one of three presentations which will be offered on November 9. The same presentation will be offered following both services and at the adult forum time at 9:30. Come learn about our the impact of our campaign and some of our special needs for 2015.

All Souls’ Commemoration

Our local celebration to remember those dearly departed will take place on Sunday, November 9 at both services. This year a formal reading of those buried in the Memorial Garden will be held and new plaques for the garden and columbarium will be blessed in the liturgy. Members of the congregation will have an opportunity to name out loud those loved ones who are now in the nearer presence of God. There will not be a sign up sheet this year, as in the past. -EHB+
