All Saints Sunday
Out of an abundance of care and caution, the people of Resurrection Lutheran Church, Moose Pass United Methodist Church, and Seward United Methodist Church continue to bring you an online worship experience. Even as we move toward gathering together, carefully, we recognize that it is safer for many to continue with “virtual worship.”
Today is ALL SAINTS SUNDAY and we’re doing something different as we celebrate the lives of saints. First, you might want to have a candle ready as you get ready to watch because, In Rev. Ben Bohart’s Children’s Sermon, you’ll get to see some of the children of our churches as they light candles in remembrance of those who have died. Rev. Jim Doepken will provide a message that incorporates the voices of many of our congregation members sharing lives of saints. Plus we have some “BIG CHURCH” hymns today including a rousing rendition of “For All The Saints” to start off worship.
—We will be referencing a document on https://www.sewardumc.com/post/all-saints-sunday that has lots of scripture verses as we look at what it means to be a saint. (See the documents below)
—This is the last Sunday to collect socks for SOCKTOBER. So please contact your pastor if you would still like to donate socks to those in need.
—We also have a study beginning today at 5 PM called “AMERICA’S UNHOLY GHOSTS.” This is a study that will take place on ZOOM for five weeks and will be looking at some of the racist roots of the Christian Church in America. Here is a link to register for the class: https://greaternw.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwscuCuqT0jGta5_z9wtp2o3TKpTY0W0H2C
