What's special about this season?
November 4 | All Saint's Sunday
November 21 | Thanksgiving Eve Service
November 25 | Christ the King Sunday
November brings us to the end of the Pentecost Season, which is called Ordinary Time. With the coming of the Holy Spirit, nothing is ever ordinary! The end of October is our 501st Anniversary of the Reformation, as we continue to reconcile with our Catholic sisters and brothers, and seek a new day of reformation amongst all of our churches working together.
All Saint’s Sunday recognizes Spirit Saints who have gone to Church Triumphant, as well as newly baptized Saints. We burn the light of Christ with candles for our loved ones.
We gather to give thanks here at Spirit on Thanksgiving Eve (Wednesday, November 21, 6pm) with Grace and University in a service of wonderful music, message and pie!
Then our final Sunday of the church year is November 25 as we recognize Christ the King, with a hint of reflection and preparation for Advent and the return of Jesus.
