Remembrance Day Sunday Service – Nov.6, 2022

For this coming Sunday remember to turn back your clocks one hour! Remembrance Sunday is always special and is held the Sunday prior to Remembrance Day. This year it is on November 6th. We gather in gratitude, give thanks to God for his promise of peace, and honor the memory of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and who have served and died in the horrors of war. There will be the Act of Remembrance (including God Save The King, the laying of the wreath by a veteran, The Last Post, Reveille, and O Canada), and In Flanders Fields (read by one of our young people). Before the youth leave for Sunday school we will light the Candles of Remembrance and Hope. At that time you will be invited forward (if you wish) to light a candle in remembrance of someone who has died in war, or as a prayer for peace. If you’ll be watching from home, be sure to have your candle ready. Pastor Ruttan will teach about John 12:20–26 and the men who wanted to see Jesus. When people open a door to us indicating that they are open to the things of God, do we share something about the hope of Jesus, or something less?
