All Saints Day/Service of Holy Communion

Giving Our Faith Wings

Prelude David Dunbar, pianist
*Call to Celebrate (8:30am) Nita Roy

(11:00am) Sue Mullins

On this All Saints Day we remember and celebrate saints of yesterday and of today;

Faithful people who set their hopes on Christ and who with their lives, praised God.

May our hearts and minds be open to new realities in Christ.

We want to be counted among saints who will inherit Your kingdom. May we, in this hour and in moments thereafter, commit ourselves to living lives that are pleasing to God.
*Hymn of Celebration “God of the Ages” No. 698
*Prayer of Celebration

Eternal God, You have knit Your people of all times and places into one communion in the mystical body of our Lord Jesus Christ. Grant us Your Holy Spirit of encouragement and strength so we may persevere in our leg of the relay race of faith until such time as we join the great cloud of witnesses who cheer us on the Way. Keep us one with all who proclaim Your gospel until such time as we finish our race, collapsing into Your arms where You wait for us at the finish of Your new creation begun in Christ. Amen.

Hymn of Prayer Reprise
In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;

in our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity.

In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,

unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.



*Prayer of Dedication

Your importance in our lives, O God, is reflected in our gifts. We return to You, through the ministry and outreach of this church, a portion of all that You have entrusted to us. We promise that these offerings will not be the end of our giving. We will also invest our time and abilities in Your work of healing, comforting, teaching, guiding, and proclaiming good news. Bless each gift, whatever its size, and multiply the good to be done through our talents and treasure. Amen.
*Closing Hymn “When We All Get to Heaven” No. 701

God, we just thank You for satisfying our souls, taking the messiness of our lives and scrubbing us clean, the same promise You offered to the Exiles 2,600 years ago and that You offer us today through Christ, Your Son. We know our lives this week will be very busy, but we ask that You pour out Your cleansing water on us, so that we may be able to humbly but confidently submit to Your will, getting the saint business done that You would have us to do. Amen.


*People standing, as able. Bold, response of the people
