All Saints remembers honored dead

In worship on November 2, we will remember and give thanks for the lives of members of our congregation who have died during the past year. We celebrate their continued presence with us in the communion of saints—the community of all persons united in Christ. We enter into the communion of saints at baptism, and we recognize this fellowship of Christians from every age each time we participate in Holy Communion. 

Communion on All Saints Sunday is a special opportunity to celebrate the grace and victory of resurrection life for members of our Belmont family who have died since last All Saints Day.

Worship will include hymns of praise and victory, prayers of thanksgiving, Holy Communion, reading the roll of the honored dead, and lighting a candle for each Belmont saint as his or her name is called.

If you would like to honor someone in your life who has been, or is a saint in your faith journey, we invite you to add a bell to our Bell Banner. Look for the banner of ribbons in the foyer or sanctuary narthex prior to each worship service. Take a small bell from the basket and pin it onto one of the banner streamers in their honor. The banner will be brought into worship and placed near the front during our processional.

We remember these Belmont saints:
