Funeral Guide Booklet

St. Paul's UCC is in the process of updating a Funeral Guide booklet to help persons in their planning of funeral services and to help answer some of the questions that persons may have.  We hope to have that booklet available by April 2018.  When it is completed, we will update this web page its availability.  In the meantime, for more information please contact the Pastor.

 

 

All Saints Day

    November 1 is All Saints Day, which is celebrated annually on the first Sunday of November.
    The custom of commemorating all of the martyrs of the church on a single day goes back at least to the third century.  Our All Saints Day celebration commemorates not only all the martyrs but all the people of God, living and dead, who form the mystical body of Christ.  Today we like many congregations remember our members who have died during the past year, and we celebrate their entrance into the Church Triumphant.

    All Saints Sunday celebrates the baptized people of God, living and dead, who make up the body of Christ.  With thanksgiving we remember all the faithful departed, especially those most dear to us who have died.  Even in the midst of loss and grief God wipes away the tears from our eyes and makes all things new.

    On All Saints Sunday at St. Paul's UCC, we will be reading the names of members who have died since last year's All Saints Sunday.  At the reading of their name, we will be tolling the church bell, lighting a candle, and pausing in revernt silent prayer.

    Our most recent All Saints Sunday was celebrated on: Sunday, November 7, 2017 at 10:25am.

    Our next All Saints Sunday will be celebrated on: Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 10:25am.
