All Saints’ Sunday Reminders
1-BRING PICTURES of dear saints in your life and place them at the altar when you arrive.
2-REMEMBER THE TIME CHANGE: set your clocks back one hour.
3-PLAN ON A FEW EXTRA MINUTES TO COME TO CHURCH due to the New York City Marathon…You can get to church and, in fact, it is fun to gather for worship on such a hustle and bustle day…Just plan on coming a bit early to navigate the crowds.

Thoughts from Pastor Miller  

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

All Saints’ Sunday, November 5, is one of the glorious days of the church year as we give thanks for all the saints.  I encourage you to be  present.  Though it is also the day of the New York City Marathon, I can think of no better witness to our city than gathering for worship in the midst of the hustle and bustle.  In particular, following the brutal attacks on October 31 in which eight people died on the streets of Lower Manhattan, what a precious gift to gather as brothers and sisters in Christ, praying for our city and giving thanks for all God’s children.

By the way, last Sunday was the 500th Commemoration of the Reformation.  While it was rainy beyond belief, we had the most people at worship (excepting Palm Sunday and Easter) since April of 2013 and concluded a month in which we had the highest average attendance in more than four years!  Also, at Vespers, in a storm worthy Noah’s ark, nearly 200 people were in attendance for a stunning evening.

Don’t miss the excitement that is Holy Trinity.   These are thrilling days!

Yours in Christ,
Pastor Wilbert Miller
