All Saints Sunday

Good morning 5th Avenue Saints,

On this blessed Sunday, we remember the lives and work of 5th Avenue UMC Saints. Historically, the Church has confessed a belief in the “communion of the saints,” which includes not only all living believers, but also all who have gone before us. When we celebrate Holy Communion, we experience the communion of saints, feasting with believers past, present and future. The author of Hebrews 12 reminds us that these saints, a “great cloud of witnesses,” surrounds us and cheers us on. http://www.umcom.org.

On this All Saints Day, we publicly remember, honor and celebrate those who have passed away since All Saints Sunday of 2019. We pay tribute to the impact their lives have had on us.  We respectfully call the roll of 5th Avenue Saints:

Ralph Mundinger                   11/19/2019

Gordon Covill                          11/26/2019

John Roth                                12/01/2019

Elaine Gust                              01/21/2020

Elaine Britton                          03/29/2020

John Koehler                           04/01/2020

James Bowerman                   04/12/2020

Nancy Mason                          04/27/2020

Helen Rilling                            05/15/2020

Janice Hartmann                    07/04/2020

In addition, we humbly remember that “great cloud of witnesses” which surrounds us; encouraging us; cheering us on. We acknowledge the lives and influences of living saints; those pastors, teachers, family, friends, musicians, and others who, through their daily life, have shown others the Christian walk and faith.

All Saints Sunday, let us give thanks for both the saints in glory and those on earth, who have led us to Jesus. As they have shared the gospel with us, may we add our voices so someone else may hear about the grace and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Go, blessed ones, to serve God all your days.

Pastor Clarissa
