All Saints Solemn Vespers Service

Sunday, November 3, 7:30 p.m.

Remembering the Saints of Augsburg who have entered the Church Triumphant:

Gene Merchant 
Jean King
Oscar “Buz” Tolley
Audry Drouillard
Judy Mullane
Ruth Helton  

And all of our family and friends who now know the fullness of Christ’s Promise.
On Sunday evening at 7:30 PM, we will remember those loved ones who have entered the holy city in lux perpetua, perpetual light. We will read the names of those loved ones, remembering their impacts on our lives. We will hear words of comfort from Revelation, “…and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes,” and from 1 John 3, “See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are.” We will hear reassuring texts including Susan Cherwien’s anthem (set to music by Robert Buckley Farlee), “O Blessed Spring,” as well as from the ancient text of the Te deum set by Augsburg composer, William Stevens. 

We encourage you to join us in the dimly lit sanctuary this Sunday, All Saints Sunday, November 3, at 7:30 PM, to be in the presence of the saints and God. Whether you are mourning the loss of a loved one, comforting someone who is, or are there as a member of the body of Christ and disciple of Augsburg, we will worship God and give thanks “For all the saints who from their labors rest,” and where “we feebly struggle, they in glory shine!”

Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine. May light eternal shine upon them, O Lord.
