All Saints’ Sunday Worship


2024-06-23 10:00 2024-06-23 11:00 America/Los_Angeles All Saints’ Sunday Worship

Every year on All Saints’ Sunday, we remember the people of our congregation who have died in the last year. All Saints’ Day is a tradition of remembrance, sometimes called All Souls Day. It is a way we remember the lives of God’s people who let the light of Christ shine in this world through their love: A light that continues to shine in the lives of their family and friends. During worship on Sunday, November 7, we will read the names of members of the congregation who have died since last All Saints’ Day, light a candle, and offer prayers of thanksgiving. If you are worshiping from home via the Facebook page, please bring a candle to your own worship space so that you can join with us when we are all invited to light a candle in memory of a person or persons who have shined God’s light in our life. This part of the service occurs at the end of the sermon. *In-Person: The following practices are all currently recommended or required by CDC, Public Health Officer of California, Public Health Officer of LA County: Concerning Masking and Distance UPDATED 7/18/21: Masks are required inside the building at all times for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

A wooden box of lit candles sits atop a table covered in a white cloth in the center of the FCC Pomona sanctuary stage. Six tall taper candles are lit on an uncovered wooden table to the right of the box of candles. The screen behind the piano shows a single lit candle under the words, "All Saints' Sunday".
