Speaker: Worship Associate Dick Bailey

Día De Los Muertos – A Celebration of our Ancestors

Rev. Sheri and Worship Associate Dick Bailey will lead our community through a celebration of Day of the Dead. Our children and youth are with us for the entire worship service. Music will be offered by Geoff Ullerich. You are invited to bring your pictures of loved ones who have died and mementos to add to our community altar. Bring your neighbor and join in celebrating those who are now our ancestors. The Fitzhugh Family will offer a stewardship testimonial. We will also have a Halloween Costume Parade in the service and a Carnival at 12:45, so if the spirit moves you, come in costume!

Wanting Memories to Teach Me

Ysaye Barnwell’s “Wanting Memories,” which she dedicated to her father when her parents were living, speaks to a longing many of us have to learn more about who we are and about life from the stories of our elders. Come hear Betty Seiden, Bev Smrha, and Dick Bailey reflect on faith in their lives and how their understanding of faith has changed through the years. An ensemble of voices in harmony will bless us with their rendition of “Wanting Memories,” as well as other songs. This service begins our 10:20, one service only, summer schedule.

This is a Time for All Ages Service.
