When I was growing up, we had Easter egg hunts in the graveyard. We hid behind tombstones during capture the flag, and we rested full potluck plates on the columbarium’s wall when the fellowship hall got full. While I didn’t live in a Halloween movie, I did grow up at church surrounded by a graveyard that had been there since the Civil War. The life of the church was vibrant because of the saints who surrounded it—our own tangible cloud of witnesses. That’s why this Sunday is special: it’s All Saints Day.
Join us this week as we celebrate and remember the people in our own lives and community that remind us who we want to be based on who we’ve been. On Sunday we’ll begin a new sermon series on our mission statement, reflecting on how DHPC is called to Christian community, and we’ll wonder together what that looks like as we enter stewardship season. (There might be some talk of ancient law codes too that you won’t want to miss!)
Scripture: Leviticus 23:15-22
Sermon: Called to Community
All that happens after breakfast, of course! Join our neighbors from Mercy Church for fun and fellowship in in Converse Hall at 9:45. We’ll dine on delicious Waffle House waffles and learn together during Sunday school. You won’t want to miss it!
See you in the waffle line!
