On All Saints Day, Wednesday 01 November 2017, we celebrate “the baptized people of God, living and dead, who are the body of Christ.”
This special version of ExALT: Extraordinary Active Life Together starts with dinner in the Life Together Hall at 5:45 p.m. followed by All Saints Day worship in the Sanctuary at 6:30 p.m. At this service, “we will pay particular attention to the past year, when so many saints have indeed gone before us. We will be inviting relatives, friends, and the brothers and sisters in Christ to come together—hearing the names of God’s beloved spoken, the word preached, and the body and blood received.”
