All Saints Day

This Sunday we will celebrate All Saints Day, a day in our Christian year in which we remember those saints who have gone on to glory before us.

At Deer Creek, we will have a quiet service of naming and remembrance at 9. We will light candles to remember those saints who have gone on before us. This will be a shorter service.

At Mt. Tabor, we are excited to celebrate All Saints Day with our brothers and sisters at Clarks Chapel United Methodist Church. We will be worshipping at 11 at Clarks, which is located at 2001 Kalmia Road, Bel Air, MD 21015. Pastor Shannon will be preaching, and Clarks’ dance ministry will lead us in worship. We are blessed to continue this tradition of worshiping with Clarks. Come join us!

Weekly Prayer: inspired by Job 42:1-6

O God of Truth and understanding, generation after generation you have listened patiently while your people questioned your love. We too have daoubted your love and judged you without knowing you. Awaken us to your presence that we may know through our own experience that you are faithful in caring for your creation; through the grace of Jesus Christ. Amen. (Margaret Gay MacKinnon Godfrey, Touch Holiness)
