ALL SAINTS’ OBSERVANCE – Next Sunday, November 2 will be observed as All Saints’ Day, a special day to celebrate alongside fellow saints and recall those who have gone before us in the faith. As is our tradition, on next Sunday we will be remembering members and loved ones who have entered the Church Triumphant. You are invited to submit the names of departed saints to be named in the remembrance. You can do this by writing down their names and submitting them today or by calling our church office with names by this Thursday (October 30).
“TRUNK OR TREAT” – You will be able to participate in this neighborhood outreach activity by backing your vehicle into a parking place near our 5th and Seminole corner on Friday, October 31 (“All Hallows Eve”) before 6 p.m. and giving out candy to children who come “trick or treating.” Even if you are unable to be here for this fun activity, your contribution of candy for distribution by those who are here would be much appreciated!
