On November 4th we celebrated All Saints Day by remembering the saints who went on before us, and by recognizing some of our members who have been a part of this congregation for more than 50 years, Evelyn Pershing and Jim and Helen Wickline.
After church we sat together and reviewed the symbols on our beautiful memorial quilt that shows the story of God's grace from creation to the heavenly realm, and lists the names of our longtime members. We told stories about some of our saints who have gone on to the Church Triumphant. We heard about teachers and youth leaders, about mentors and the cooks of fine church dinners. It was a lovely day of remembering the past and being encouraged for the future.
